The Godfather Part III (1990)

Rewatching for my The Complete Pacino list.

Oh. I knew this wasn’t in the same league as the previous two, but I had remembered it as a bit better than I found it this time.

Clearly Ms Coppola (as Michael’s daughter Mary) is a massive weak link, and her relationship with Andy Garcia’s Vincent is absolutely terrible and a huge mis-step.

But what makes this even worse is the amount of shadowing, mimicry and call-backs to the previous films. Yes, we need to know it’s in the same world, but it’s almost a pantomime.
