More Info:
  • Owen Gleiberman

    In this brilliantly sustained climax, Coppola unveils a vision of corruption that embraces the entire world, but he's also reveling in sheer theatrical magic in a way that only a master can.

    Part III matches its predecessors in narrative intensity, epic scope, socio-political analysis, physical beauty and deep feeling for its characters and milieu.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It's strange how the earlier movies fill in the gaps left by this one, and answer the questions. It is, I suspect, not even possible to understand this film without knowing the first two, and yet, knowing them, Part III works better than it should.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    One of the most obvious problems with The Godfather Part III is that it covers little new territory. The plot is highly derivative of the original.

  • Elvis Mitchell

    One of this film's greatest accomplishments is its making an audience believe that the Corleones and their various partners in crime have been entirely in character during the intervening decades, but have simply neglected to turn up on screen.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    A provocative and stirring climax to the Corleone saga, as well as an autonomous work that sometimes shows Coppola at his near best.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Staff (Non Credited)

    One of the most frustrating films of 1990, an epic without epic scope, a muted, strained, unnatural affair that never comes into dramatic focus.

  • Barry McIlheney

    A dreadful disappointment.

    Empire Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    It's hard to tell if this thing's serious or parody and, if it is parody, whether or not it's intentional. Is it a winky joke, for instance, to have lightweight performer George Hamilton as Pacino's business attorney, or just ridiculous casting? Hamilton's performance points to the latter.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jay Scott

    More than merely another bad movie, it's the most depressing development yet in Coppola's career. It's a would-be cash cow bred cynically to excrete money, the arty answer to "Child's Play 2" or "Back to the Future III."

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Hal Hinson

    The Godfather Part III isn't just a disappointment, it's a failure of heartbreaking proportions... It makes you wish it had never been made.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    This lushly photographed, brilliantly acted and wonderfully entertaining movie has its own claims to uniqueness. It's the most thoughtful of the three films, and its climax brings the entire series into sharper focus. [25 Dec 1990, Daily Datebook, p.E1]
