What to know

critics consensus

The final installment of The Godfather saga recalls its predecessors' power when it's strictly business, but underwhelming performances and confused tonality brings less closure to the Corleone story. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

As Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) ages, he finds that being the head of the Corleone crime family isn't getting any easier. He wants his family out of the Mafia, but the mob kingpin (Eli Wallach) isn't eager to let one of the most powerful and wealthy families go legit. Making matters even worse is Michael's nephew, Vincent (Andy Garcia). Not only does Vincent want a piece of the Corleone family's criminal empire, but he also wants Michael's daughter, Mary (Sofia Coppola).

Critic Reviews for The Godfather, Part III

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (43) | Rotten (20)

  • Allows us to take in the full scope of Michael Corleone's (Al Pacino) tragic journey - from optimistic military veteran to cruel crime boss to emotionally shattered old man.

  • [...] 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 [...]

    May 12, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is a slow fuse with a big bang -- one that echoes through every family whose own tragedy is an aching for things past and loved ones lost.

    March 28, 2011 | Full Review…
  • The movie, a heady thicket of political intrigue and double crosses, is slower, talkier, and more prosaic than the first two films, and its narrative seams sometimes show. And yet it's more than the sum of its mazelike convolutions.

    December 12, 2007 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • The Godfather Part III matches its predecessors in narrative intensity, epic scope, socio-political analysis, physical beauty and deep feeling for its characters and milieu.

    December 12, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Represents a certain moral improvement over its predecessors by refusing to celebrate and condemn violence and duplicity in the same breath, or at least to the same degree.

  • An American tragedy writ large. This "CODA" is ultimately the same movie as "The Godfather, Part III", albeit re-positioned, but still a good, quite worthy movie. (Blu-ray Director's Cut Review).

    February 1, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Sofia Coppola, making a horrendous leading-role debut, is perhaps the single most significant reason why this film was not nearly as well received as the previous two entries.
