News & Interviews for Triple Frontier
Critic Reviews for Triple Frontier
With Chandor doubling as director the movie looks great but makes surprisingly little of the personal conflicts that arise.
Alas, just as broken clocks have their moments of accuracy, even the most gifted directors occasionally offer up disappointments. Such is the case with J.C. Chandor's fourth film, Triple Frontier.
Triple Frontier makes a decent stab at looking beyond the usual ambitions of the genre. There's thought behind all this gun-toting.
Triple Frontier features impeccable photography, strong acting, and well-staged action scenes that ooze tension.
There are some zippy chase scenes and shootouts, and tension throughout. But the characters - especially the lethargic Affleck - make for more of a C-Team than an A-Team.
Audience Reviews for Triple Frontier
Triple Frontier seems to want to say some important things about the way the US simultaneously uses its soldiers to enforce its will on other nations, yet also completely fails to take care of said soldiers, especially after they've retired. But that really seems like an afterthought in a pretty baseline classic heist formula. Nobody fails Triple Frontier particularly, it just gets lost trying to pick between a brodown and a message.
Some retired Special Forces guys, hard up for cash and back in the States (moaning about how they were used and then discarded), decide on one more mission: to rob a drug dealer in South America and keep the money for themselves - "to even the score". A heist film. The first part of it is about them finding the rationale (which they already had), the second part is about their action and escape. There are scenes of tension, but the work feels uneven, disjointed. Oscar Issac delivers a decent turn. Affleck doesn't seem like he wants to get off of the couch and go outside.
Star-studded Netflix action flick that starts out slowly but once it found its footing, things get pretty exciting. Having the supposed climax of the film happen rather early on makes everything coming after that pleasantly unpredictable. Thoroughly entertaining and with interesting characters, the viewer is gladly on board for the ride. Some parts play out maybe a tad too quickly, but overall the experience is pretty satisfying and even calls for a sequel.
