The Godfather Part III (1990)

The Corleone family comes full circle in the final instalment of The Godfather trilogy. Al Pacino and Diane Keaton reprise their roles as Michael and Kay as the characters and the audience try and find closure on the family’s past events. Michael tries his hardest to finally legitimise the business but has no luck as other members of the organised underworld in New York and Italy stand in his way. Andy Garcia brings a fresh performance as the no good cousin Vincent and helps to progress the story and keep the film interesting.

Even though it ticks all the boxes that makes any of the Godfather movies instantly classic, Part III unfortunately just misses the mark of greatness that Part I and II achieved so effortlessly. That being said, if you’re a fan of the series, the world and the characters this is still a must see and provides an appropriate ending for the amazing saga that is The Godfather.

The Podfather Score: 6.75
