Fans of the first two instalments are likely to find The Godfather Part III an unworthy heir to the tradition. First-time voters, meanwhile, will surely wonder what on earth all the fuss was all about.

Ultimately, the film is fine for ending the trilogy, but Part III is more of an appendix than an epilogue.
| Original Score: 3/5

The acting is merely passable, several characters are given nothing to do, and Michael's paranoid self-pity lends the film an absurd morality: Coppola expects us to sympathise with the semblance of virtue.
November 1, 2001
A discordant and unnecessary coda to an already completed and glorious symphony of films.

Aims for metaphysical truth but ends up with little more than corpses on the ground.

[An] offer director Francis Ford Coppola should have refused.

To call this the weakest of the three movies is like calling Fredo the weakest of the three brothers. Duh.

Considering the way it inadvertently lampoons and nearly diminishes the earlier two films, this is nothing less than a travesty.

It may be that Coppola was right to put off filing this last installment all these years; from the evidence here, he had nothing more to say.
April 17, 2001
Anyone with memories of The Godfather and its 1974 sequel will shudder at how Coppola reduces their powerful iconography to the level of a daytime soap.

[...] a crushing disappointment. It's a sluggish movie with nothing to say about the moral rot of the powerful that the first two parts didn't say much better [...]

An epic without epic scope, a muted, strained, unnatural affair that never comes into dramatic focus.
