Morally confused
24 March 2019 | by screenotesSee all my reviews

Focusing on an "illegal" mission to steal a drug lord's fortune, Triple Frontier (2019) initially appears to be more than just your typical heist movie. In setting up an assassination plot against a violent and oppressive criminal, things start to look especially interesting when it is revealed that our heroes' motivations are essentially based on greed.

Yet the promise of an interrogation of the human soul is never truly paid off as the film broadly shirks the moral investigation with which it flirts. This is not to say there aren't numerous situations in which our heroes ostensibly become anti-heroes. However, as much as their behaviour is morally dubious, the filmmakers have taken pains to make the central characters empathetic.

There is some great action and genuine suspense during the second Act amid the heist proper. There are even some would-be iconic scenes which are the result of some genuine craft from all concerned.

Yet with a great cast and a promising setup, the film is ultimately less than the sum of its parts. In the end, Triple Frontier is wholly forgettable.
