A TALE of gangsters and crooked cops in Atlanta, director John Hillcoat’s “Triple 9” features Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, and Woody Harrelson, among others.
“Triple 9” starts out with a well-executed bank robbery and the criminals begin their escape through the busy streets. There’s a cabal of mercenary cops (Anthony Mackie, Clifton Collins Jr.) and ex-military bad brothers (Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus) who do dirty jobs for RussianIsraeli gangsters (led by Winslet).
After the opening heist doesn’t go exactly as planned, Winslet’s mob-boss demands one last job of her motivated ringleader (Ejiofor), who is forever tied to Winslet’s whims be- cause of the son he shares with her sister (Gal Gadot). Winslet is trying to get her husband out of a foreign prison and the answer apparently lies in Atlanta security facilities.
