Thoughts on GODFATHER PART 3:
Godfather Part 3 wasn’t as good as Godfather Part 1 (the best), and Godfather Part 2 (second best), but I still think a solid film, and if you watched the two other Godfathers, there is no reason not to watch the film.
Some thoughts off the dome:
- Didn’t really like Al Pacino showing weakness in the film. I think they over-did it. I would prefer his more ruthless personality in the 1st or 2nd film. But I did really love his softness with his love with his wife Kay.
- The ending of the film (spoiler alert) is a good end to the film — a strong image of tragedy.
- I liked the last image of Al Pacino by himself, to teach us, ‘No matter if you have all the riches in the world, a man without family is nothing.’
- There was a really good drama and build-up in the film, especially towards the end of the assassination scene.
- In the Mafia world, lawyers are more valuable than hit-men.
- “Children are the most valuable gift”. Reminder when I have kids, don’t focus on money, power, or wealth– but the kids.
- Al Pacino’s daughter’s acting performance was sometimes cringing. I was confused why the acting was so bad. But then again, it did reveal the character of the girl as being naive. I think Sonny’s son did a good job playing out the character of the new Don, but still, lacks the chutzpah of the original Don and Al Pacino.
- Honestly The Godfather film series would have been best if it just ended on the second one, but still I think the last film is good.
