Far fewer bags of cash are placed on the mules than were carried on the helicopter. Simply abandoning the remainder would seemingly negate the entire purpose of negotiating with the village leader for a certain sum as reparations.

Neither the team nor the villagers are necessarily acting rationally. The team needs to leave as soon as possible, both parties want to avoid escalating the situation again, and it is unlikely that anyone could accurately calculate how many bags the mules could carry. It is entirely plausible that the team would abandon the excess money and flee rather than wasting more time renegotiating the truce. See more »

Retainment Officer: [at the podium] I have the honor today to introduce you to Retired Captain William Miller. He's been everywhere in the world you all wanna go, and a bunch of places you don't. I've asked him to come and talk to you all today at this important crossroad in your careers. I'm gonna step out so this conversation can be frank and to the point.

User Reviews

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.
