In this third installment of the 'Pusher' trilogy, we follow Milo (Zlatko Buric), the drug lord from the two first films. He is aging, he is planning his daughter's 25th birthday and his shipment of heroin turns out to be 10.000 pills of ecstasy. When Milo tries to sell the pills anyway, all Hell breaks loose and his only chance is to ask for help from his ex-henchman and old friend Radovan (Slavko Labovic). Written by

When Milo and Radovan are taking care of the first body, Radovan slits the man's throat as he hangs upside down from the ceiling. A bucket that has been placed beneath him fills with the man's blood, and Radovan instructs Milo to empty it and bring it back. When he picks up the bucket, the plastic underneath it is covered with blood. However, when he brings the empty bucket back and replaces it beneath the man, the plastic covering is clean. After Radovan eviscerates the man, and Milo once again removes the bucket, the plastic is again covered in blood. See more »
A nice last chapter to one of Denmark's best trilogies
Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (2005)
"Hvem jeg er? F*cking King of Copenhagen!"
This is the final part of Nicolas Winding Refn's "Pusher Trilogy" a movie series about the life of three different persons with a relationship to one another. In the first of three movies Pusher (1996) we follow the drug dealer Frank and his problems when he drops a big deal. In the same movie we meet Frank's friend the bum Tonny and Frank's supplier Milo. In Pusher II (2004) we followed Tonny's life after he comes out of jail, and in Pusher 3 it is Milo's character that is the leading character.
The movie follows one day in Milo's life. He is helping planning his grownup daughter's birthday party and he has a major drug deal going on. But something in the deal goes wrong when Milo is tricked by his "partner". Milo now stands between the men he owes money and the man who owes him money. To solve all his problems Milo has to make some drastic and dramatic decisions and do some gruesome things. This includes among other things involving his old friend Radovan, known from "Pusher".
Pusher 3 is a great finish to Refn's series about the Copenhagen drug world. Zlatko Buric is amazing in his first leading role, as the old drug dealer/supplier Milo. If you liked his role and performance in Pusher, you will love him here! The movie has some very disturbing scenes and the cinematography helps the movie to appear very realistic. This movie shows a scary environment, interesting and frightening characters and contains a disturbing story.
