“There is no limit to what desperate men will do when pushed.”
We call the Film Board a gang of thugs, but we’ve got nothing on the crew from Triple 9, a violent cop drama from 2016 directed by John Hilcoat. With both the Marvel and DC cinematic universes represented as well as The Walking Dead, this film has a slew of familiar faces. We have corrupt cops working one last heist for the mafia, and needing to sacrifice one of their own to do it. From early on this films delivers on action and adrenaline, but can the story and actors deliver an appropriate finish? How many times has Woody Harrelson played a law enforcement role? Why are accents such a problem for some actors? And if the Film Board ever needed a sacrificial lamb, would we pick JJ or Tommy?
