|"Okay. Who opened the fuckin dye pack?!"|
Joe's Take-Woody Harrelson (Kingpin) runs an anti-robbery unit that has Casey Affleck (Out of the Furnace) and Anthony Mackie (8 Mile) tracking a criminal team led by Chewie, Chewettel, Cheweewee, that guy from 12 Years a Slave. Organized by Kate Winslet (Titanic), the bad guys rob a bank and sets into motion a chain of events that has major consequences. Is Mackie working with the crew in an elaborate double cross? Who put the bag over Darryl's (Norman Reedus) head? And what idiot opened the red dye pack? There's gang banger shootouts, Harrelson giving fatherly advice, and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) smoking cigarettes. This film looks like a combo of Training Day, Street Kings, and Armored. If the twists aren't impossibly stupid and the action delivers, this could be a really good movie. Hopefully it doesn't go the "Sabotage" route.
My Prediction- Triple 9 will be a decent cops versus robbers flick that is better than the weak month that it's released in so, it won't be a piece of shit.
Mike's Take -Oh hey, look, a bunch of Deadpool cosplayers robbing banks and blowing things up! Woody Harrelson plays the elder experienced cop to Anthony Mackie's new "recruit" meaning that he's either transferred to the new department or he is a new guy at the precinct. Either way, there's something foul in the water and one of these guys is playing secret Santa with a bunch of bank robbers. Will it be good or will it suck?
It's got Woody Harrelson in it for chrissakes. Plus Norman Reedus. Can't go wrong with casting like that. Plus the trailer looked really good.
Not a piece of shit.
