The Godfather Part 3 was always the least likable of the three films. It was made because Coppola needed money, and so he took the execs up on making another follow up. The script was rushed and so was the production. To top it all off, Robert Duvall did not return as Tom Hagen. I’ve been waiting for a good fan edit of this film, and I think this is as good as it can get. The cuts and remixes, while not extreme at all, do a lot to polish this film into something more worthy to be called Godfather. The title is much more appropriate, as that is what this film is…an epilogue. This feels more like a Godfather film than before.

I can’t say Duvall’s absence isn’t still felt, and I can’t say I like Vincent’s character a whole lot more than I did before, but I’d definitely rather watch this than the original.

Final Score: 9 out of 10.
