When not accompanied by expository dialogue and good character development, it all becomes just so much noise and confusion.

Director John Hillcoat is a master of the visceral, slightly depressing mood, so it's a surprise that he's whipped a completely different rabbit out of the hat with Triple 9.

Triple 9 is much more densely populated and eventful, but it winds up not being able to live up to the promise of its rich concept.
August 13, 2018
A messy and unsophisticated cop drama that quickly stumbles into a spiritless slumber.

At the end of the day, stories need to be about characters, not types. While nothing that ought to inspire a letter writing campaign from the ADL,"Triple 9" fails to make it past shorthand.

Bottom line: should you watch Triple 9? No! Is it a slick thriller? Yes, but only in its looks.

Goodness, this is an unpleasant, unlikeable and pointlessly complicated picture.

It's the kind of crooked cop film that will likely wind up on a random list of 100 Crooked Cop Movies compiled in no ranking order... in the next few years. It's that derivative.

The problem with Triple 9 isn't that it is an uber-masculine piece of genre fiction - it is that it is a formulaic one without a distinctive personality.

As a whole, the ideas, themes, and talent the film brings together don't quite blend well enough to be satisfying in this otherwise generic crime thriller.

Triple 9 is best during the first third, introducing its rogues' gallery of characters and detailing their daily grind. Unfortunately, the last third is weighed down by predictable thriller trappings.
December 31, 2016
It's almost criminal the way the crime thriller Triple 9 strands a talented cast in a morass of mixed motivations and acting styles.

When the last bullet hits, it's still the same old runaround, only with several new faces striking poses and emptying their weapons into one another.
November 29, 2016
The sloppiness of the cops-and-robbers games starts to feel pointless, even as it remains generally compelling. Everyone in Triple 9 ultimately feels a bit like a supporting character -- even the filmmakers.

Should've been better for a John Hillcoat movie. [Full review in Spanish]

As for the final 20 minutes, they are a sudden burst of sound and fury signifying precious little of significance, pushing the thriller towards a frustrating final flurry of events that are as disappointing as they are unhappily inconsequential.
July 18, 2016
Triple 9 trips over its own lofty ambitions.
May 20, 2016
It's often a challenge to figure out exactly what Triple 9 is, a problem exacerbated by a script that packs in far too much plot and not nearly enough guidance in figuring it out.

Maybe if the filmmakers would've focused on it's main character instead of filling it wth subplots, the film might've had something new to offer to the genre. [Full review in Spanish]

A very uneven film. [Full review in Spanish]
