Sophia can’t hold her own against Pacino, but when she’s acting opposite Andy Garcia, she’s just fine. The guy who plays Tony is a bit of a stick in the mud though. These are the only sour notes in the entire series. Marcy thought that the way Kay and the kids find out about Michael’s first wife, Apollonia, isn’t handled too well, but there’s enough pay-off here set-up in the previous films to satisfy. The opera, the Vatican, Pacino’s Vader-topping scream that seals his tragedy–it all culminates here, and it still deserves 5 stars.
