It’s Episode 103 and Flixwatcher are joined by British filmmakers Eran Creevy and Mat Whitecross to review the 2019 Netflix produced Triple Frontier. Triple Frontier boasts an all star cast of Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal, direction from J. C Chandor with the story by Mark Boal. They are a group of Special Operations soldiers who reunite for a heist to steal a lot of money from a South American drug lord. The first half of the film is the classic get the gang back together and the second half is the fallout from them stealing more money than they expected to steal. Which is the films major downfall, the motivation for the heist is they think they deserve to steal this money that isn’t theirs and the chain of events are triggered by their bigger greed of stealing more than originally planned to take. If you can buy this as a major plot point then you’ll probably enjoy this film.
[supsystic-tables id=108]Triple Frontier has all the elements that should make a great heist film but fails to deliver, it lacks the tension and surprise that is required to make this anything more than a standard action flick. Given the talent involved it is a massive disappointment. Overall Triple Frontier scores just 2.78.
