We gave it a D

The Last Don is not just a wan revisitation of The Godfather but Godfather minestrone, with bits from parts 1, 2, and 3 all tossed into a lukewarm pot. As if that weren’t enough, Mario Puzo also concocts a musty movie-biz plot, with unsurprising twists and outdated details. Staggers erratically from Hollywood lite to Mob gothic and back again. D
