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. Written by Open Road Films

Goofs

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 »

Disappointing
26 February 2016 | by musicfilm-2See all my reviews

I went into this movie with high expectations, but alas, I was let down. Good actors and a plausible story, but inevitably Triple 9 fails to deliver. There are no characters I could really root for with the possible exception of Casey Affleck (just a little). I found myself yawning several times throughout - it just didn't hold my interest. No real back story so it's hard to fathom what these characters are really all about. Some sexy girls, guys with tattoos and attitude and bad cops. The bank robbery at the beginning was the most exciting part and it's downhill from there. Somehow I didn't buy Kate Winslet as a badass. The best line in the film was Woody Harrelson's reference to the Kosher Nostra - that actually got a few laughs. Don't say you weren't warned.
