In TRIPLE NINE, a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for "officer down." Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.

If he hadn’t already made a Prohibition-era Western called “Lawless,” director John Hillcoat might as well have saved that title for “Triple 9,” a modern-day heist thriller of unusually grim, coiled intensity: About as far removed as possible from the suave leisure-suit larcenists of an “Ocean’s Eleven” caper, the desperate crooks trying to pull off one last job here are a bunch of corrupt cops and ex-soldiers in Atlanta, navigating a shadowy urban labyrinth with no chance of escape or redemption in sight. Well suited to Hillcoat’s gifts for low-boil suspense and brutal eruptions of violence in close, male-dominated quarters, the film has grit and atmosphere to burn but also a certain narrative sketchiness, as though unable to reconcile its sharp sociological portraiture with the pleasures of a more robustly plotted crime yarn. While a diverse, high-wattage cast including Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Kate Winslet should draw some takers, the Open Road release looks set for a minor killing at best.
