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

At the first briefing at the police station, after the bank robbery, Marcus notices some red paint on the outer aspect of his right lower trouser leg and crosses his left leg over to cover this. In the next scene, he is standing with legs uncrossed, looks down and appears surprised to see something (presumably the paint), suggesting that this scene should chronologically be earlier than the leg crossing scene.

Triple 9 - review: What the hell just happened?
7 March 2016 | by parleon-thedonSee all my reviews

The red band trailer is amazing; When I first saw that trailer, I was game for an intense action thriller (Training Day on crack), however, what I got was...

Positives:

#1. A through Z (all across the board), all of the actors in this movie delivered convincing performances

#2. The opening robbery scene is intense and engaging throughout

#3. You know why some of the characters are doing the things that they're doing. Nothing is really explained in full context during the movie; How did some of these characters get involved with the mob? However, I did understand a majority of the characters motivations. When things happened, the characters reacted (no matter how irrational), and I understood where they were coming from.

#4. The main crew felt like a close family. We (as an audience) didn't get to spend a lot of time with most of the characters, but during certain scenes you could feel that they were all close to one other.

#5. Some deaths linger on. A character may die, you really don't get to know them, but the characters won't let you forget who died.

#6. Information is continuously pounded into your brain throughout. I had to remember names, events, and situations. All of the information may make some feel exhausted, but I found it exhilarating.

#7. There will be blood, death, and brutality. This movie definitely depicts realistic violence.

Negatives:

#1. I didn't care who lived or who died; The characters don't let you forget, but if I can't build any sort of relationship with the character, than why would I care.

#2. The movie does continuously pound information into your head (which I did like), but it ultimately goes nowhere. By the end of the movie... just throw the info out the window because it ultimately means nothing (WTF!)

#3. Unfortunately, this movie uses a "MacGuffin" device to further its already absurd plot.

#4. The movie starts in a good place, it feeds us supposedly promising information, it goes down a promising path, and than at the end... what the hell! There's no pay off. There's no satisfaction to be had here. By the end of it all, you finally realize that none of that previous crab really matters... at least that's how I felt anyway.

#5. This is a by the numbers movie. I wouldn't say that it's totally predicable, but there isn't anything here that you haven't already seen.

I really was enjoying this movie from the start, through the middle ( a little), and than the ending happened. Some moments are intense, others are dumb, some make no logical sense, and than the ending is just a complete throwaway.

This movie is no Training Day on crack... WTF!... I really had high hopes for this movie. Maybe My exceptions where to high. By the way, everything is spoiled for you if you watch the trailers.

Finale Grade: D+
