“‘Three’ is executed with the precision and skill of brain surgery. It’s first rate entertainment.” – Maggie Lee, Variety
When a police sting goes bad, a cornered criminal (Wallace Chung, DRUG WAR) makes a desperate choice: he shoots himself, forcing the officers to cease fire and take him to the hospital. Once there, he refuses treatment, waiting for his cohorts to break him out. Caught between an obsessed cop (Louis Koo, TRIAD ELECTION) and the surgeon assigned to save his life (Zhao Wei, RED CLIFF), the hospital is now a battleground of deception, double-crosses, and a coming onslaught of violence in this action-thriller by master filmmaker Johnnie To.
