Triple 9 (2016) ***

Well, it seems the reviews were right about this one after all. A solid film but definitely the weakest one by Hillcoat so far. It just feels generic, which is a shame because I really like Hillcoat's other 3 films (especially THE PROPOSITION and LAWLESS is underrated). This is such an impressive cast on paper but no one really impresses. There are some exciting heist and chase sequences but as a whole TRIPLE 9 falls short. It's just another story of corrupt cops and gangsters with nothing setting it apart. The absence of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis in the scoring department is a shame too, as their contributions to Hillcoat's other 3 films was integral.
