The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - David Strat­ton

Triple 9 (MA15+) An At­lanta-set thriller about crooked cops work­ing for the Rus­sian mafia, this is a fre­netic, at times barely com­pre­hen­si­ble, ef­fort from Aus­tralian di­rec­tor John Hill­coat. A dis­tin­guished cast helps: Casey Af­fleck as one of the few hon­est cops on view, Kate Winslet as the ruth­less Rus­sian ma­tri­arch, Chi­we­tel Ejio­for as one of the many bad guys. But much of the di­a­logue is as in­com­pre­hen­si­ble as the plot and the fren­zied cam­er­a­work is not help­ful. Hill­coat stages a cou­ple of fine scenes of sus­pense, but they’re not enough.
