Triple Frontier Netflix trailer

This looks pretty cool. Has some good actors and footage in this trailer.

Adria Arjona is a good enough reason to go see it. Story looks OK too.

Good premise, looks like a lot of action. I’m in :)

Pretty good. Thought story line was a bit too fast..Entertaining nonetheless.

I thought it was pretty lame. Written by Mark Boal and produced by Kathryn Bigelow, the dynamic duo that brought us Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker. I’d say what you thought of those films would be a good indicator of what you’d think of this one.

I found it entertaining. The plot was somewhat uneven, and the character development was inconsistent, but, I'd still say it was worth watching.

It wasn't bad. Downside was representing vets have no money and can't get decent jobs.

So...minor spoiler question here








So I guess it took things going completely to crap before they decided to cache the money for later? I mean, with multiple millions of dollars I'm sure you could have an easier time of getting back to a cache site.

They made numerous serious tactical blunders and bad decisions throughout (both by commission and omission), blunders that no career SOF guy would make.

It's a movie, right?

I guess that one just really had me scratching my head. They could have had a whole other movie out of having to go back and get the loot. :D

I think the slip of paper Ironhead handed to Pope at the end suggests they left it open for a second movie.

I thought the movie was okay. I may watch it again just to see if I can better understand why they made the decision they made at the end when they met around the dining room table.

I'm watching this now. All the elements for a really good movie were there but the story is so dumb.
