FW MOVIE PICK: THE GODFATHER PART III

The Godfather III' is Getting Recut by Francis Ford Coppola

Many would consider this third installment in “The Godfather” trilogy to be the worst and the director once stated he views this film more as an epilogue than a continuation; needless to say the movie is still well done and still got Oscar attention like the previous two movies, but that ain’t saying much! As Michael Corleone 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 isn’t eager to let one of the most powerful and wealthy families go legit. Making matters even worse is Michael’s nephew, Vincent. Not only does Vincent want a piece of the Corleone family’s criminal empire, but he also wants Michael’s daughter, Mary. The film stars Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, and Andy García, Eli Wallach, Joe Mantegna, Bridget Fonda, George Hamilton, and Sofia Coppola. Overall this final installment has its moments when it comes to the family business, but this movie has has an extremely confused convoluted story that doesn’t know whether it should be taken seriously or not as well as giving us a lifeless performance Sofia Coppola as Mary!
