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

Trivia

When Marcus Belmont (Anthony Mackie) is scolding Gabe Welch (Aaron Paul) about the booby-trapped cash, he turns around and delivers the line "bitch!", which was Paul's commonly used catchphrase on Breaking Bad (2008). See more »

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 »

Quotes

Michael Atwood: The more jobs we do with these guys...
Russell Welch: The more they squeeze us. Fucking Russians.
Michael Atwood: Vassili kept things tight. At least you knew where you were. But this bitch? I don't know.
Russell Welch: No shit. I can almost feel her breathing down our necks.

What Happened?

I'll make this short and sweet.

I really wanted to like this movie. With its insanely talented cast, this should have been way better than it actually was. It is well acted, and the cast did the best they could with the material given to them.

However, it all gets lost in what tries to be a convoluted plot. This wants to be a really good heist movie (with very well executed action scenes, granted), but in reality it is just a sub-par, predictable action movie filled with your run of the mill, dirty cop dialogue filling the scenes trying to move the plot forward. Rent it for a rainy evening, but don't expect anything you haven't already seen.
