Great Movie & Sold Cast!

Just a great film all the way. Former military myself search & rescue...Yeah they didn't get everything right, but really thought the plot was great & plausible.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Director J.C. Chandor uses his finely tuned, artful style to create an action-packed film with intricate battle sequences and suspenseful "human vs. nature" moments performed by A-list actors. The physical settings are as breathtaking as they are treacherous. The mistakes, accidents, punishing terrain, and enemies accumulate and expand while the men stop the action to ponder shifting moral responsibility and determine just how far they're willing to go to succeed. In spite of that, mostly sketchy characters emerge. Still, audiences will cheer for them: The actors are more than sympathetic -- they're dashing heroes in these roles. Only Ben Affleck's character seems to be a lost soul who won't find redemption. Chandor, who consistently delivers solid, compelling work, has added an efficient thriller to his filmography. Triple Frontier is a satisfying diversion for grown-up action fans.
