Overheard 3 (Chinese: 竊聽風雲3) is a 2014 Hong Kong-Chinese crime-thriller film written and directed by Alan Mak and Felix Chong and starring Sean Lau, Louis Koo, Daniel Wu, Zhou Xun and Michelle Ye. It is the sequel to the 2011's film Overheard 2 where Lau, Koo and Wu play different roles with a different storyline (abolishing the Small House Policy), but the key elements of the previous two films are kept. The film was released on 29 May 2014 in China and on 5 June 2014 in Hong Kong.[2][3]

Boon Chan of The Straits Times states "The complicated web of relationships and land dealings plus the high-tech electronic monitoring make Overheard 3 feel overstuffed and underwhelming."[4]

Gabriel Chong of gave the film a 2.5 out of 5 stars, and states "Compared to its predecessors too, the storytelling goes bogged down in way too much exposition particularly in the middle segment."[5]

The film grossed ¥27.7 million (US$4.43 million) on the opening day in China.[6]
