Triple Frontier: Action flick? Check. But a dumb action flick? Also check
16 March 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Triple Frontier is a demonstration of just how far Netflix movies have come, a huge scale action movie. But does it deliver?

Well immediately I'm bias, I'm not an action movie guy and never have been. Call me picky but I want more substance from my films than a wafer thin plot, gunfire, explosions, car chases and brain dead dialogue.

Here we have Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam (Who I can't stand but don't know why), Oscar Isaac and Pedro "Dude where's my head" Pascal in a rip roaring big budget action heist movie.

Telling the tale of former special forces guys *Yawn* who are roped into a mission, an assassination where they can also rob millions of dollars and turn their lives around. Deep in the jungles of Brazil the heist begins, but as is always the way things don't exactly go to plan.

Sadly this is exactly what I feared it would be, a brainless action flick. It suffers all the usual cliches, it brings nothing to the table that we haven't seen before and quite frankly most of the cast just look bored. Like they're there for the paycheck and can't wait to go home.

Triple Frontier succeeds in looking good, visually its impressive (Even though that's clearly Hawaii not Brazil). But a movie needs a lot more than impressive visuals to be enjoyable, sure they do a good job in its creation but this would have been better suited in the 80's/90's when action flicks had more credibility.

Is it the worst out there? Absolutely not it has it's pros, but it's still just a mindless action flick and nothing else.

The Good:

Excellent soundtrack

Looks impressive

The Bad:

Cast just aren't bringing their A-game

Dumb cliched stuff
