Movie Info

Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), now in his 60s, seeks to free his family from crime and find a suitable successor to his empire. That successor could be fiery Vincent, but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence. Francis Ford Coppola brings a definitive new edit and restoration of the final film in his epic Godfather trilogy.

Critic Reviews for THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (22)

Not enough has been changed to turn around anyone who already dislikes it, but in cutting out 13 minutes of runtime, the director has excised many of the small moments that made it uniquely memorable in the first place.

March 27, 2021 | Full Review…

Much is tailored to the needs of drama in "Godfather, Coda." But one cannot manufacture urgency in a film that lacks the kind of cosmic conflict of its two predecessors.

December 18, 2020 | Full Review…

It's often gripping, sometimes masterful, and almost never betrays its history as the work of a wayward giant scrambling back toward respectability after a long decade lost in the wilderness.

December 18, 2020 | Full Review…

The film's tautly controlled turbulence guides the eye to salient details, its clarified lines of dramatic tension calmly burst into images of an explosive yet nearly static intensity.

December 13, 2020 | Full Review…

I almost don't see a point for Godfather Part III. You've ended the story so beautifully with Godfather Part II, why would you go back and continue it? The story doesn't come together like it did [for the original], but I will say he's improved it.

December 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It does improve the pacing, but otherwise it's very much the same movie. I've always been a sucker for movies about men looking back at their lives full of regret and guilt, so this one very much did it for me. I really enjoyed it.
