Triple 9

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

An A-list cast adds class to a B-movie plot in this gritty heist thriller, although their act­ing chops can’t el­e­vate a stock tale of dirty cops and dou­ble crosses to the ranks of the crime clas­sics it plun­ders. Woody Har­rel­son’s cyn­i­cal po­lice vet­eran and Casey Af­fleck’s guile­less young officer rep­re­sent the be­lea­guered forces of good, with Chi­we­tel Ejio­for as a ruth­less bank-rob­ber be­ing co­erced by Kate Winslet’s mob boss into at­tempt­ing a near im­pos­si­ble heist. Di­rec­tor John Hill­coat gives the ac­tion scenes plenty of mus­cle. 2016, 15, 116MIN
