About Triple Frontier:
Former Special Forces operatives reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers, these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for themselves instead of the country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties, and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival.

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 doesn’t entirely manage to transcend the traps of action movie, but there’s more to it than meets the eye.

This very good analysis of American imperialism and its devastatingly insidious effects on the individuals it ensnares into its web is frustratingly only about half of 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.

Chandor and Boal’s collaboration on Triple Frontier is the first blemish on their practically pristine resumes; a generic, by-the-numbers heist thriller camouflaged with a false social consciousness.
