"This movie is the worst of the Trois series, believe me. The acting was second rate at best, the plot was weak and the main woman in the story pictured in the background on the box cover was cute but not all that appealing to me.
I've seen all of the Trois movies and each one up to the second one got better, but this one was a major bomb. The story revolves around an up and coming rap artist who turns to becomming a male escort in order to pay off his debts. He meets a woman who gets him established in the business, she runs his affairs, cares for him and becomes quite attached to him. Soon, he learns that paying off his debts are the least of his problems. He falls in love with one of his clients and things begin to fall apart from there. The scenes had no spark to them and the actresses seemed to be trying too hard to be something that should come almost naturally."
Classy "Urban" Film / Actually, it's more than an Urban Film

"What can I say, this film threw me a serious curve ball. Although each trois film has gotten better, this one made a jump with great leaps and bounds. This was truly a film with class. Classy direction. Classy acting. Classy storytelling. I was expecting it to be like a lot of those straight to video movies, (and not just the urban ones, all those B movies across the board) but I appreciate that the makers of this series continue to move in the right direction. And who is this Director and Writer. They have these mysterious names. Skav One and Mr. Anderson. Regardless, they both surprised me, pleasently. This director opened the erotic film genre up to another level, in fact, instead of exploiting it, he made it human. And I appreciated how the story took it's time and let us like and understand the characters, instead of slamming them into the sack. And the stars -- That Madame gave a whole new meaning to pimping ain't easy. And Regan Gomez has grown into quite the leading lady. The gigolo was very good as well. Good Acting. Good Directing. Good Writing. Honestly, I think you'll probably be just as surprised as I was, if not more by this film."
The BEST of the bunch

"Trois 3: The Escort leaves the previous editions of this title in the dust. I have to agree w/ the other reviews about this one surpassing them by leaps and bounds. I think the STRONG casting in this one is what sets it apart. Great acting and chemistry between Brian White and Patrice Fisher. Fisher was pleasing to the eye, but there was more to her. Fisher had a power and command that came across on the screen. Never heard of her before this, but I predict big things ahead. White is/was already doing an awesome job on The Shield, but really let the audience feel his character's desperation/struggle. Reagan Gomez did a fine job as well although I have to be careful not to give anything away. Isiah Washington-very believable in his ruthlesness.
Great twists and turns. Great story. Great direction.
Did I forget to mention the HEAT? Impressively done, but in a unique way.

In a word: Superb!
Jane Alexander | Seattle, WA | 12/30/2004

"In a word: Superb! French filmmaker, Skav One (aka Sylvain White) makes a statement with this powerful indie gem.
Please do not be discouraged by the tawdry series of films that came before this one and share a common title. Nor should this piece of cinema be restricted by the label of "urban" fare. "Trois: The Escort" is instead: a very pleasant surprise.
A solid and intelligent screenplay, combined with outstanding direction set the tone for this refreshing and well-executed thriller. The film's entire cast is exceptional and director, Sylvain White handles the film's noir elements superbly, with haunting music, taut cinematography, intelligent dialogue and a constant search for motive.
There are multiple twists to this cleverly cruel story, but the real draw is the onscreen coupling of Brian White (Mr. 3000, The Shield) and newcomer Patrice Fisher whose performances are both brilliant. Fisher, in particular, is spectacular and gives one of those performances that should put her on the map as a serious actress, if anyone is paying attention.
Isaiah Washington and Reagan Gomez round out the stellar cast and turn in quality performances, but both are upstaged by the magnetic chemistry between Fisher and White, who own this movie.
If you are looking for a smart thriller, with substance, depth and nuance then "Trois: The Escort" is an excellent choice for your late night enjoyment."
