I really don't get the fuss about those films.
Film one is good enough, thanks to Al Pacino who's brilliant! But Marlon Brando talking through cotton balls in his mouth? You just don't know if you want to laugh or cry really.... The photography is barely existent, and the plot is fine but not that riveting!
Film 2: they should have kept just one story. The story with de niro is absolutely without interest and goes nowhere, it has no point really and the street scenes are directly poorly, look so fake!!! Terrible. The main story is saved once again by al Pacino. But the plot is drowning itself in useless twists which have no tension to them.
Film 3: catastrophe! They killed most characters in the previous films so have to introduced a whole lot of new "family" people you never heard of before. The character of al pacino becomes a silly old wimp!!!! Utterly rubbish, no sense whatsoever and no respect for the legacy of the two previous films.
In summary: it's OK. Al Pacino is fascinating. Good point to Diane Keaton. But overall poorly directed, poorly shot, and some outrageously silly characters and scenes.
