decent enough ending to a good trilogy. this one revolves around milo (buric), an upper echelon dope dealer who (as is usual with the series) runs into some money problems and has to scramble to get things back on track. to make things worse his daughter’s wedding is coming up and he chose the wrong time to help out a prostitute in a pinch. buric turns in a standout performance and the supporting cast is mostly better than it was in the first one. the problem here is that the pace is slow and the plot is thin. in the gambler (the documentary about the making of pusher 2 and 3) we see refn scrambling to put together these screenplays. in the pusher 2 it didn’t show much, but here it does. it’s just too undeveloped and thin to make for a film as compelling as the original. it’s worth checking out if you’ve seen the first two, but it’s not amazing on its own. that said, there is a disembowelment scene that could appeal to fans of gore.
