I watched all tree movies in one weekend. If you have time, do it and you'll get a very good sense of continuity of the story of one family spanning over many generations. You'll get a very deep thought and emotion provoking experience.
All three films are very good and I don't see why the third one has been discredited as the weaker one. In my opinion it is as strong and valiant as the first two. Perhaps people who had seen the first two films made in short proximity of 72' and 74', after 16 years of waiting had their expectations lifted to almost unattainable levels? Another mystery for me is the assault of critic's attacks Sofia Coppola received for her portrayal of the part of Mary Corleone. I thought she was excellent. I thought her casting in the role has been a brilliant idea. She comes across as a young, innocent, well-protected girl- just right for the part she is playing.
Watch this film and judge it for yourselves.
