October 16, 2019
Director [John] Hillcoat has done a good job weaving this together. It's not that hard to follow and the characters are pretty well developed. Hard to watch? Yes. It's long at over 2 hours. But stick with it. It's worth staying for the smart payoff.

"Triple 9" features a strong cast, which is why it's a bit disappointing that the film ultimately dries up, instead of firing on all cylinders.
November 1, 2018
Triple 9 does bring a couple of new ideas to the table and, though nothing it does is particularly groundbreaking, it is an entertaining ride whilst it lasts.

It felt very smart... Triple 9 doesn't talk down to you.
December 4, 2017
Triple 9 is a dark and cynical look at police corruption, filled with unlikable characters, but underneath all of that bleakness is a shotgun blast of gripping authenticity for the gang lifestyle presented

Apart from an unnecessary profusion of subplots, you'll likely find this heist-thriller to be quite satisfying.
October 16, 2017
It's a reasonably effective thriller that works because of its A+ cast and one really well executed action set piece in the middle of the movie.

The real screen stealer in Triple 9 is Clifton Collins Jr., as the quietly diabolical, dirty detective Rodriguez. He is a reason why this film will keep you glued to your seat.

Somehow, it all works, and Winlset almost makes us believe that Lady Macbeth has been reborn east of the Volga.
November 8, 2016
The solid direction, storytelling and acting by Hillcoat, Cook and the cast don't reinvent the crime/thriller genre. They just add to the trove.
July 26, 2016
If you like your crime flicks grim and gritty you'll be able to fill your boots here.
June 21, 2016
The action set-pieces are well performed and director Hillcoat keeps the film moving from the first frame to the last.
June 21, 2016
It is a tense, amped-up, hyperviolent caper whose cops and robbers are not always easy to distinguish
June 14, 2016
A complex heist thriller involving crooked cops and the Israeli-Russian mob.
June 8, 2016
John Hillcoat makes manly movies. 'Triple 9' is a masculine motion-picture for men, at the multi-plex-more so in the man-cave. Don't spend the moolah; wait for it on Netflix.
June 7, 2016
Director John Hillcoat doesn't bring anything new to the table, but he's crafted such a genuinely riveting movie that the familiarity barely matters.
May 18, 2016
All of Hillcoat's films are about worlds that have nightmarishly run of control ... It dives so deep into the pathology of corruption that no-one is untainted, and the grace notes are pure gore.
April 27, 2016
A solid, sturdy little crime picture, in which a deep bench of fine actors have a great time playing good guys and bad guys (and variations between).
April 15, 2016
John Hillcoat packs the film with enough pulpy flavor and tension to transform the routine into something deep and perhaps even profound.
March 28, 2016
With one too many characters and plot threads to juggle with, Triple 9 never reaches the ambitions it aspires to.
