This third installment of the "Pusher" trilogy follows Milo, the agining drug lord from the two first films. 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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If Pusher III is the trilogy's least effective, that may be because the soured-deal plot line is by now a given, and its theme is the simplest."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Pushes the admittedly tiny "life and times of bedraggled men in the drug industry" subgenre to a place that it had never before gone and will likely not return."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Final installment in a trilogy about Copenhagen drug dealers. Sardonic comedy in the "Goodfellas" vein."
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"More an engrossing psychological study of a drug lord heading for a breakdown than a violent tale of criminality."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Gut-churningly nasty"
‑ Noel Murray, AV Club
"Expands [the trilogy's] overarching vision of underworld nastiness, the universal yearning for escape, and the cruel hand of fate."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"A pushy piece of work worth the withdrawal when it's over."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Life and death on the mean streets of Copenhagen they evidently exist are rendered with pungent detail and excellent discipline in this tough trio of underworld thrillers."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"It's a nasty film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Refn saves the best for last..."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
