SynopsisEdit

Yong-gu (Shim Hyung-rae) is the illegitimate child of the infamous mafia boss Don Carini (Harvey Keitel), who operates out of New York. Carini shocks everyone by stating that he wants Yong-gu to take over the operation, something that seems to be a bad choice when the man in question shows himself to be a poor candidate to be a mafia don.

ReceptionEdit

The Los Angeles Times and The National both panned The Last Godfather,[3] and the Los Angeles Times wrote that the film was "more harmlessly amiable than outright awful, though it might still be best to just forget about it."[4]
