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

Kate Winslet's Russian name in the film is Irina Vlasov, which is actually incorrect. This is because, being a female, her last name would end with a vowel to designate that she is female, so her last name would be Vlasova, rather than Vlasov. This is common mistake in English-language films and TV series. See more »
The more jobs we do with these guys...
The more they squeeze us. Fucking Russians.
Vassili kept things tight. At least you knew where you were. But this bitch? I don't know.
No shit. I can almost feel her breathing down our necks.

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.
