Editorial Reviews

Mob boss Don Carini (Harvey Keitel) is retiring from the Mafia business – but when he gathers the family to announce his heir, the Don surprises everyone by anointing his goofy adopted son Young-gu (Hyung-Rae Shim) as the next godfather. With everyone gunning for his job – and his father pressuring him to succeed – will Young-gu overcome his enemies and rise to become the head of the family before he winds up snoring with the fishes?

Customer Reviews

Very funny movie.
A. Gueco
Another weakness, for example, is that at no time does the audience take at face-value the notion that Shim's character is actually HK's own progeny.
Pork Chop
This movie is THAT bad.

Its a comedy NOT a real gangster flick. Its pretty funny! Jason Mewes did well and Hyung-Rae Shim was hilarious as Harvey Keitel son. Was worth the money spent on the rental.

There are movies made that are so bad they're good. That is to say they are made with the intent of being a good movie but due to budget constraints, over acting and other variables, they end up being really bad movies...that viewers can enjoy by laughing at them. And then there are just really bad movies like THE LAST GODFATHER.

Harvey Keitel (completely wasted here) stars as Don Carini, a Mafioso who is in his declining years and has decided to pass on the title of Don. Tony V (Michael Rispoli) seems the logical choice, the right hand man of the Don for many years. So you can imagine his surprise to learn that the Don had a son years ago that he kept away from everything to protect him.

That son is Young-gu (Hyung-rae Shim), the love child that Don Carini had when he was in hiding in Korea. Young-gu's mother took a bullet for the Don and to protect his son he placed him in an orphanage that he took care of. Now grown, Young-gu is brought to America to take over his father's empire. The problem is that when you say Young-gu is innocent it doesn't completely describe him. He's a bumbling idiot.

The Don's men can't believe their eyes. This is the man they are supposed to follow. The Don puts Tony and his sidekick Macho (John Pinette) in charge of educating Young-gu in the business. They start with loan sharking and Young-gu can't get the hang of it. When they try to teach him to defend himself he does so more by accident than by intent.

On one job they take him along on, Young-gu meets Nancy Bonfante (Jocelin Donahue), an attractive young woman he inadvertently saves from a supposed mugger. The two fall in love unaware that her father is Don Bonfante (Jon Polito) and has been at war for years with Don Carini. It's Romeo and Juliet...sort of.

it gets OKAY amount of stars for being different. I only found this while looking for comedian John Pinette who is in this movie and has a significant role. It is a "pass the time" movie. Nothing great- but not totally God awful.

Format: DVD
The Last Godfather (2010) is a light comedy, skillfully crafted
such that it won't offend even the most sensitive audiences,
considering the touchy subject-matter( the underworld, and mob.)

The technical aspects of filming are excellent, such as the
time-pieces (automobiles, buildings, neighborhoods recreated as
with the restaurants, fruit and vegetable stores, tailors and
men's wear stores, etc)

The music is also very good in recreating the Brooklyn section of
New York from as far back as 150 years ago.

Conversely, the acting, pace and agility of the dialog is often
lacking in subtlety and sophistication. In factor, it is often-times
reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin's clumsy style seen in his silent
pictures, played here by Hyung-rae Shim, who is a top star in
Korea.

Another weakness, for example, is that at no time does the audience
take at face-value the notion that Shim's character is actually
HK's own progeny.

In fact, given HK's occasional struggles in naturally expressing
emotion (unless, with effort, etc) this challenge is made even
more obvious, considering that Shim's acting style appears
afflicted in this aspect to a much larger degree, slowing down the
film's momentum and sequences.

Conversely, the other actors all do a fine job on this one, such
as Michael Rispoli, Jocelin Donahue, Jon Polito and the known
food comedian John Pinette, reprising his gig relating to food and
eating.

For the harsher critics, this picture may reach the groveling
level in regards to those who enjoy films based in the New York of
the 18th and 19th centuries; for the others, this work is
amusing and mildly interesting. 1.5 stars

What a wast of talent. I was expecting a funny movie and what I got was slapstick. I got through the first 30 minutes, thinking maybe it has a slow start. I never got passed that.

This is what Keitel has been reduced too? Too many drugs on the set of Bad Lt. maybe??

Who knows? What a shame....

Simply terrible! I generally give a film a chance to build and perhaps get my attention but this on e proved unwatchable in the first 10 minutes and frankly I am surprised I made it that far!
