he first and second installments in the Godfather series were unique in that they were made by essentially the same crew with the same cast and filmed just a couple years apart in the early 1970s. They had a very similar look and feel, making the second movie seem like a true continuation of the first, which makes even more sense when you realize the events in both films were covered in the novel "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo, and were only broken up to avoid having a six-hour movie. However, The Godfather Part III was made decades later in 1990, and has a distinctly different flavor from the first two films. Many cite this film as the "lousy" Godfather movie, while others try to find some aspects, in retrospect, that make it redeemable. In fact, it would probably be a great mob movie, if it didn't have to live up to the first two films.
