Triple 9 (2016) Review

Posted on the 07 February 2016 by Caz @LetsGoToTheMov7


A group of dirty cops end up in way too deep with the Russian mob, just when they think they are out after a heist. They must do another to gain some important information.

Now this is a pretty strange one really as this was the Cineworld Secret Screening film and it was certainly a film that I probably wouldn’t have bothered with on its release, with good reason after watching it last night would prove. It is a very bland and boring film that in the end doesn’t have any good points. It was slow in the build up and did not have any likeable characters from start to finish, what happens when a film is like that? Well you just don’t care about it.

I missed this film off my list of possible films, but a comment from a fellow blogger said this film and he was certainly right. After that was mentioned this was the film that I thought it was going to be as it really did fit perfectly to the rating and closest to the running time.

The thing is though the opening scene was pretty good and had some intensity about it as a group of men are robbing a bank, always makes for a good film scene in all honesty and this was no different. Pretty shocking to then see it was done by a group of cops. The only problem with finding out that quick was that it then took the edge of the film. It left us wondering if they would get caught out but not that we actually cared a massive amount.

The walls close in around the characters one at a time, would have been better for a few different things to happen at the same time. As we were just left waiting to see who would be next. I guess it did show that when working on the streets some of them ended up being confused by the role they were supposed to be in and seemed to have good relationships with the criminals and gang members.

That was all about to change when Chris Allen (Affleck) was going to come in as the new partner of Marcus (Mackie) who really wanted to make a difference. You know like so many films we’ve seen like this one, so nothing new with the story. I really have to mention that it annoyed me with the constant chewing gum found it massively distracting, like seriously I know its a strange thing to comment on but if you see this film I am sure you will understand what I mean! It was slow, boring and pretty predictable.

Behind the links with the Russian mob was due to Terrell having a young son with one of the women. So basically we are supposed to believe he is doing it all to see him, when in the end it actually made no sense why he continued to do the heist and jobs for them. Kate Winslet was underused in my opinion as could have added more with more scenes. But let’s face it this film has an impressive cast with a very poor and limited script to work with. I won’t be recommending that you rush to see this one when it is released over the next couple of weeks, so I don’t think the secret and previewed screening will do it any favours in finding an audience.
