Triple Frontier

  • Release Date: March 6, 2019
  • Director: J. C. Chandor
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal

Triple Frontier is one of the first Netflix original heist movies. It marks a notable investment from Netflix into the action movie space, and with a cast like Triple Frontier has, it must have been quite the investment!

Triple Frontier leans a little harder into the military aspect of heist movies. This is not a movie about a team pulling off an art heist or robbing a bank. No, this is the story of a team of special ops members who retired from the US military and they reunite to take down and rob the leader of a criminal organization. It's a very action-heavy movie, especially compared to some of the other heist movies on the list.

Overall, Triple Frontier is not one of the best Netflix movies of all time. There's a lot left to be desired in terms of character development, but as a heist movie with high stakes, Triple Frontier does work well. It's definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it simply for its cast, action sequences, and heist elements. Oh, and it sounds like Triple Frontier 2 might be in the works, too, according to Charlie Hunnam's interview with The Mary Sue.

Up next is the most popular Netflix movie of all time, Red Notice!
