Never seen any Overheard films, is it worth venturing into or was I right to pass on all 3 films?

The Overheard series is a somewhat dark, drama/thriller. I liked the first two, but wasn't much of a fan of the third. I would recommend the first one, and maybe the second as well.

Definitely worth checking out, even if part 3 is pretty weak. All three feature the same key cast members (Lau Ching Wan, Louis Koo, Daniel Woo) but playing different roles each time. Each film focuses to varying degrees on surveillance. OVERHEARD 2 is the best in my opinion.
