Triple 9 (a movie blurt)

This film caught my attention because of the all-star cast ensemble: Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, and Kate Winslet. The characters they play are flawed and except for Affleck’s character, they’re all cynical or corrupt to a certain degree. Set in Atlanta and complete with graphic scenes, this film is violent and gritty about dirty cops and dirty deeds with links to  Russian organized crime . Lots of twists, action, and raw pain. Feels too much like real life in these turbulent times. There’s no escapism here.

  1. So dear Karina, first of all thank you for your review and I watched the movie 🙂 . This is the first time I watched Kate Winslet playing a negative role, and I liked it. The movie was good actually, a lot of blood (which I am not a fun of), and the most what I liked was the ending… I loved the ending, because they all died.

  2. I loved the movie. Of course; a weirdo like me would. Kate was such a bitch — ah, I did not expect the ending! 😀 I agree with your brilliant review 100%…. definitely no escapism, but if you enjoy kickass movies, this is it!

  3. Were the dirty deeds done dirt cheap? Sorry! AC/DC made me do it.

    I’ll keep Triple 9 in mind. A few years ago I watched a filmed that had Casey Affleck in it: The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. You may like the movie, but it’s kind of slow paced (in my opinion).
