Without doubt the greatest trilogy ever made and I base that solely on the fact the first two films are unbelievably good and make up for the flawed third. The crux of the story comes from Michael Corleone's development from war hero to Don. This is where my issue with the third movie comes in. In the first two films you see Al Pacino's full character development to Godfather and the story is finished. In my mind, the third film just isn't needed and is always going to be a disappointment. The great things about these films are almost too numerous to mention. Great acting performances from Pacino, De Niro and Brando, superb support work from the likes of Duvall and a great storyline are just some of the massive positives. So instead of focusing on the positive, I feel some of the negatives must be mentioned. The biggest of which come in the form of two actresses; namely, Talia Shire and Sofia Coppola. Personally, I have never understood how Talia Shire has made her way into two of the biggest film franchises ever made. She is one of the least convincing actresses ever hired... or at least that was what I thought. In Godfather 3, we are treated to the appalling performance of Sofia Coppola, daddy director's little girl. I have never seen an actress less convincing as a human being. Perhaps I am being harsh but you place incompetent actors in scenes with Brando and Pacino and they are going to be out of their league.
Despite the few flaws these films possess, I love these films. They have so many iconic moments and great acting that at 9.99 it truly is an offer you can't refuse.
