Storyline

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.

Goofs

Multiple continuity errors during the fleeing car scene after the initial bank robbery. After the van's door is sheared off, dense red smoke is seen coming from the floor of the van, while in the next scene the bag from which the smoke originates is being held high out of the broken door. In the cut-scene a second later, the car comes to an abrupt stop with no smoke visible whatsoever. In the next cut, the men are shown exiting the vehicle with red smoke billowing out. See more »

This isn't a bad movie but it's not brilliant
23 February 2016 | by sawaughSee all my reviews

Triple 9 is a dark and gloomy story, which feels strongly inspired by Michael Mann's Heat. Unlike Heat, the film/script doesn't give the characters enough substance to make us care for their outcome in the film. The ordeals of the characters came and went without me feeling any real emotions towards any of them.

This isn't a bad movie but it's not brilliant. There are a few of gun battle/action periods that are really well shot and entertaining enough to keep you interested in the film as a whole. It's not too predictable but there are not enough shocks or tense moments that you would expect from a thriller.
