An action/heist thriller that turns into a plodding parable of greed
15 August 2019 | by akcenatSee all my reviews

Five ex-military veterans reunite to rip off a drug lord, but like every other robbery in movie history, it does not go as planned. Despite a sturdy premise, "Triple Frontier" is curiously inert, shallow and un-involving. Despite a strong cast (Affleck, Isaac, Hunnam, Pascal and Hedlund) it feels like the characters are flimsy and inconsistent. The most tension filled scene is the robbery itself, which surprisingly happens early on into the run time. The length of the film is also a bit challenging at times and seems to drag on. As a result, it is a film that is competently made so you are not really seeing a bad film 'per se', but then it is also an uninspired film, so you won't see anything that goes above mediocre for most of its run time. It felt like there was a lot of potential here, but somewhere along the way it got lost and we ended up with its shadow instead.
