In TRIPLE 9, a crew of dirty cops are blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist. The only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for "officer down". Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck, action-packed finale filled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.

Having been waiting on the next great police drama I had hopes TRIPLE 9 would bring it like TRAINING DAY or THE DEPARTED. Upon watching it I felt the storyline and the cast of characters were very strong, but still felt there were some things still missing to take it to the level of aforementioned films. If you ask me without giving away too much of the plot twist I think it could have been a bit more dramatic making the steps leading up a whole lot more tension filled. So as for TRIPLE 9 I give it 3 ½ stars.
