The last and least of the three - but it still packs a punch
The last instalment of the EASY MONEY trilogy is the least of the three thanks to its disjointed nature, but it's still unmissable viewing for anybody who's seen the other two. EASY MONEY III: LIFE DELUXE continues the trend from the first two films of containing beautifully shot scenes of characters struggling with the trials and tribulations of their criminal lives.
Once again there's a wonderfully tense and wonderfully shot heist scene to enjoy, along with some involvement with a crime family that brings to mind the glory days of the gangster film, THE GODFATHER et al. Matias Varela gets the lion's share of the screen time as the small-fry bad guy still trying to make it big, although Joel Kinnaman fans will be disappointed that he barely has a cameo in this one. Still, there are plenty of involving sub-plots in EASY MONEY III and most of them are hard-hitting and intense, although with the extra complexity comes extra confusion, making this the least satisfying of the trilogy.
