What to Know

Critics Consensus

The final installment of The Godfather saga recalls its predecessors' power when it's strictly business, but underwhelming performances and confused tonality brings less closure to the Corleone story.

Jake Cole Slant Magazine The Godfather films have set home-video standards for decades, and that trend continues with Paramounts astonishing 4K restorations. Mar 18, 2022 Full Review Zaki Hasan San Francisco Chronicle Allows us to take in the full scope of Michael Corleone's (Al Pacino) tragic journey - from optimistic military veteran to cruel crime boss to emotionally shattered old man. Jan 10, 2020 Full Review Noel Murray The Dissolve [...] a crushing disappointment. It's a sluggish movie with nothing to say about the moral rot of the powerful that the first two parts didn't say much better [...] Rated: 2.5/5 May 12, 2014 Full Review Terry Francis Southern Voice (Atlanta) Starts off strong, becomes bogged down in expository dialogue, and finishes with an anti-climactic climax. Rated: 2/4 May 9, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) It's sad to see a film with so many good things fall under the weight of so many bad things. [Full review in Spanish] Nov 17, 2022 Full Review Andrew Sarris Video Review I consider this third part of the Godfather trilogy a worthy conclusion to the greatest American movie epic of the past two decades -- and an underrated masterpiece in its own right.

Jack G Not as good as part two but still very good and worth it to have all three in your library Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/08/24 Full Review Wyatt E A great end to a great trilogy Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/06/24 Full Review Dani G One of the worst (or at least more famous) casting decisions in cinema... You know who. It made this unnecesary third installment a lot more questionable. I don't even feel it as part of The Godfather saga Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/25/24 Full Review Stan D Could of been good but ruined by the casting decisions and dialogue. Garcia, Sophia Coppola, and Hamilton just killed the film Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/21/24 Full Review Ives d The most underrated movie of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/13/24 Full Review Laiz S Oh lord. What a damn shame. Do yourself a favor and stop at the second movie while it still makes sense. Believe me, you don't want to remember Michael like this. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Read all reviews
