Two out of Three Ain't Bad,

This review is from: Pusher Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
Superb trilogy based around drug traffiking in Copenhagen suffers only from a weak final part.In Pusher we follow Frank as one bad deal sends his life into meltdown destroying his relationship with his best friend Tonny and putting him at the mercy of drug kingpin Milo.Pusher 2 follows Tonny's story whose attempts at rehabilitation are thwarted at every turn by his own stupidity, possible fatherhood, the hatred of his father and an unhealhty friendship with Kurt.Pusher 3 follows Milo through a day organising his daughter's birthday party while trying to ward off various threats to his empire.
Overall the trilogy benefits from superior performances throughout,a (to these eyes at least) frighteningly realistic depiction of the drug culture with it's attendant violence and greed and an electrifying soundtrack. Pick of the bunch is Pusher 2 with Mads Mikkelson superb as Tonny. Beware that both 2 and 3 have shocking endings.
