Triple 9 (2016) review

The Australian director John Hillcoat (The Proposition) has a complex relationship with violence: he gets a kick out of the spectacle, but also wants to confront us with its moral ugliness. In the new crime thriller Triple 9, first-time screenwriter Matt Cook probably had little in mind beyond fitting together the pieces of the tricky plot. But Hillcoat makes the final product seem almost apocalyptic: a social panorama with a functioning society nowhere in sight.

In police code, “999” means “officer down”. This is the basis for an audacious plan hatched by an Atlanta gang consisting of corrupt members of the force and Iraq black ops veterans like Michael Atwood (Chiwetel Ejiofor). Shoot a cop deliberately, and fellow officers will flow to the crime scene like water down a drain, freeing the rest of the gang to carry out a heist elsewhere.

The cop marked for death is Chris Allen (Casey Affleck), who’s new to the job and has no reason to suspect the treachery of his partner Marcus Belmont (Anthony Mackie). The closest thing the film has to a leading man, Affleck is logical casting as a fall guy: he has the jawline of a determined hero, but also a recessive quality that suggests he might not make it to the end of the movie (in this, he shares something with Guy Pearce, a favourite Hillcoat actor absent here).

As Chris has doom hanging over his head, Marcus has guilt over the planned killing. But there’s too much going on in Triple 9 for their dynamic to register as more than one subplot among many – none of them developed enough to be involving beyond a tense set piece or two. The cast is absurdly crammed with familiar faces, including Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus as other gang members, Kate Winslet as a Russian mob boss who operates out of a kosher slaughterhouse, and Woody Harrelson doing his usual brand of laid-back showboating as the irascible police chief.

After a while it all blurs together. Hillcoat shoots with a jittery hand-held camera and has as much of the action as possible take place after dark, with the actors sometimes bathed in hellish red light. To a degree, the feeling of congestion appears to be the point: one of the most memorable images is an overhead shot of a stack interchange, with highways twined round each other like a nest of snakes.
