In TRIPLE 9, a crew of dirty cops are blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist. The only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for "officer down". Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck, action-packed finale filled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.

As the crew leaves the bank, Michael pulls the pins on two distraction devices (flash-bang grenades) and places them on the door handles; however, the safety levers (aka "spoons") are still on the grenades. As the crew gets in the van, there is an explosion in the bank, implying that the grenades have gone off. First, flash-bangs are mostly light and sound; they would not explode in flames and blow out windows. Second, that's not how grenades work: You pull the pin and the safety lever flies off as the primer strikes the fuse; fuse time varies but is generally under five seconds. See more »
The more jobs we do with these guys...
The more they squeeze us. Fucking Russians.
Vassili kept things tight. At least you knew where you were. But this bitch? I don't know.
No shit. I can almost feel her breathing down our necks.

The cast for this film really made me want to see this film but unfortunately this film fails to deliver. The premise of this film sees a group of bank robbers trying to make there last score with a unique method. Chiwetel ejiofor plays the main robber and he is a great actor. He does the best job possible in this role its just that his character is so unlikeable that you end up not caring about him. Casey Affleck plays the good cop in this film and He does a really good job in the role and probably gives the best performance in the film. Another good performance is by woody harrelson who plays the cop going after the crew and he gives a charismatic performance. Anthony Mackie gave some humanity to his character which made him the most likable of the crooks. Also aaron paul had an interesting role in the film that I kind of wished had been fleshed out a little more. The story is pretty by the numbers with not much new. There are some good relationships developed but overall pretty basic. Thev script was very dull and boring with not much going on either dramatically or humour wise. The style had some really good suspense to it that had me on the edge of my seat. But the film is a drag at times and goes on for a bit too long. Overall this is a really average movie that I wouldn't say is worth seeing.
