竊聽風雲 3 (Overheard 3) (Blu-ray release 2014-10-28) is yet another sequel in the Overheard series from Hong Kong, although its plot has no relation to the previous movies.  This time the story focuses on different groups of people scheming to profit from land and government policies made for a certain region in Hong Kong.  In spite of the strong cast, this episode is the least entertaining among the three movies.  The schemes are not totally clear to me, but that’s not the real issue.  The major thing is that simply watching people plotting to make a profit is not exactly exciting.  The climax is more exciting, but I don’t think all those killings are a meaningful resolution to the conflicts among different parties.
