Synopsis:
When a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist, they realise the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a '999' - police code for 'officer down'. The chaos that ensues is just the diversion they'll need to do the job, but whether they have the will to kill one of their own is an entirely different matter. Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a full-throttle finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.

Superior cops-and-robbers movie - Triple 9 review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
29/09/2016

This tense cops-on-the-make saga, in the tradition of TV series The Shield, has no right to be so riveting. Chiwetel Ejiofor, cinema’s 12yr slave, is charismatic as the chief baddie. John Hillcoat directs with pace and a sharp eye. The gifted Atticus Ross underpins the action with an insistent soundtrack. He should be employed on superhero films to wean them off John Williams-type generic muzak. Even Woody Harrelson’s stereotypical hard-bitten detective and Casey Affleck’s congenital mumbling become less irritating as the plot negotiates its twists and turns. The whole package gets better and better as the complex narrative unfolds, so much so that you may even temporarily forget Heat and LA Confidential.

Crime Thriller - Worth Checking Out - Triple 9 review by GI

Spoiler Alert
10/04/2021

This may not be director John Hillcoat's best film by a long way but its still a fine action packed crime thriller that has the influences of Heat (1995) about it. With an all star cast this has some gritty action set pieces, a strong if occasionally overly convoluted plot and some bloody violence. Chiwitel Ejiofor plays Michael, a former Special Forces soldier, who heads a tight crew of criminals that includes several corrupt cops. Michael is under the control of a Russian mobster, Irina (Kate Winslet, suitably menacing) who orders him to carry out two complex heists in order to steal some very particular items. The first nearly goes wrong when one of the gang (Aaron Paul) gets greedy and the second is highly risky. The gang decide that they need a huge diversion to draw the police away from the scene of the second heist and plan to murder a police officer, Chris (Casey Affleck), which will cause all the police to head towards the police murder. But loyalties in the gang become very fraught! Woody Harrelson heads the team of detectives investigating the gang and Anthony Mackie, Gal Gadot and Norman Reedus co star. All the characters are neatly drawn with various flaws and agendas and there's some terrific chase scenes and shoot outs. All round it's thoroughly enjoyable and definitely worth checking out.

Format film - Triple 9 review by NC

Spoiler Alert
28/08/2016

Never even got to where Casey and Woody came in. Couldn't see the point of wasting bulb hours on my projector. Just more talking and violence, inter dispersed with down home US swearing and mindless conversation. Cheap films to make the crime/thriller......can reel them out..literally........wonder if that is where the saying came from..........reel upon reel.......
