Critic Reviews for Triple Frontier

All Critics (132) | Top Critics (26) | Fresh (93) | Rotten (39)

  • With Chandor doubling as director the movie looks great but makes surprisingly little of the personal conflicts that arise.

    March 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Alas, just as broken clocks have their moments of accuracy, even the most gifted directors occasionally offer up disappointments. Such is the case with J.C. Chandor's fourth film, Triple Frontier.

    March 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Triple Frontier makes a decent stab at looking beyond the usual ambitions of the genre. There's thought behind all this gun-toting.

    March 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Triple Frontier features impeccable photography, strong acting, and well-staged action scenes that ooze tension.

    March 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • There are some zippy chase scenes and shootouts, and tension throughout. But the characters - especially the lethargic Affleck - make for more of a C-Team than an A-Team.

    March 14, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's a meta-narrative in there somewhere, condemning films like Triple Frontier for exploiting the violence of war for superficial ends, but Chandor doesn't delve into self-analysis long enough to make a point about it.

Audience Reviews for Triple Frontier

    From Netflix comes the exciting action-thriller Triple Frontier. Five retired Special Forces soldiers team-up to rob a Colombian drug lord, but their greed causes the job to go sideways and it soon starts to tear them apart. Starring Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, and Charlie Hunnam, the film has a pretty good cast that delivers solid performances. And director J. C. Chandor does an impressive job at shooting the exotic locales and giving a grittiness to the soldier's trek across the jungles and mountain terrain. Plus, the chases and fight scenes are intense and action-packed. However, the plot is rather formulaic and predictable. Yet despite a few weaknesses, Triple Frontier is an entertaining adventure.

    Strong cast save what is a more sophisticated Expendables. The film is tough to watch and if the filmmakers had spent a little more time developing the players, this might have been a stronger movie. Great casting and solid filmmaking but slightly underdeveloped considering the years it languished in development. This deserved an additional 30 minutes and considering this was a Netflix production, who cares about the length. Slightly flawed but when the film is good, it really is good. 13/08/2019

    Triple Frontier seems to want to say some important things about the way the US simultaneously uses its soldiers to enforce its will on other nations, yet also completely fails to take care of said soldiers, especially after they've retired. But that really seems like an afterthought in a pretty baseline classic heist formula. Nobody fails Triple Frontier particularly, it just gets lost trying to pick between a brodown and a message.

    Some retired Special Forces guys, hard up for cash and back in the States (moaning about how they were used and then discarded), decide on one more mission: to rob a drug dealer in South America and keep the money for themselves - "to even the score". A heist film. The first part of it is about them finding the rationale (which they already had), the second part is about their action and escape. There are scenes of tension, but the work feels uneven, disjointed. Oscar Issac delivers a decent turn. Affleck doesn't seem like he wants to get off of the couch and go outside.
