The Hollywood Reporter
"Despite the heavy dose of action and numerous tense situations, this Netflix offering has trouble staying in high gear once it gets there"  NEU

The New York Times
"[Chandor] maintains the kind of accelerated pace that gives your eyes a workout, and pads the story with an inviting camaraderie that brings you into the group."  POS

Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
"A solid, engrossing genre item with designs on being something more. It doesn't quite get there but it does well enough along the way to make the journey worth taking."  POS

Owen Gleiberman
"On paper, at least, you could call it a good movie. (...) Yet I’m sorry, there’s a dullness at the core of 'Triple Frontier.' We’ve seen these sorts of situations once too often, done tighter and better, with more surprise."  NEU

Eric Kohn
"Fortunately, [it] doesn't lack for forward momentum once the group mobilizes, and the movie maintains a sufficient degree of thrills as each stage of the plan hits a new snag."  POS

Ian Freer
"[It] is engaging in parts with well-mounted action. But the characters lack definition and you can’t help but think an old timer like Hawks or Fuller might have done it better in half the time (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU

Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times
"From the direction to the script to the production elements to the performances, 'Triple Frontier' is a first-class ride (…) Rating: ★★★½ (out of 4)"  POS

Benjamin Lee
The Guardian
"It's an enjoyable enough way to spend two hours but without any commentary or real depth, it's in need of a bit more suspense (...) the film too often ambling along when it should be racing (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU

Chris Nashawaty
Entertainment Weekly
"There may be no honor among thieves, but Triple Frontier certainly makes watching them pretty entertaining."  POS

Barry Hertz
The Globe and Mail
"[It] briefly transcends narco-sploitation territory (...) Characters’ motivations bounce up and down the ethical spectrum, initially critical plot points are conveniently solved or ignored altogether."  NEG

Christy Lemire
"While the action itself is vividly shot and often quite tense, the characters are so thinly drawn that it’s impossible to connect with them (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 4)"  NEU

Soren Andersen
Seattle Times
"When greed runs up against conscience, you've got a story. It does in 'Triple Frontier', and the story of that collision is a violent and thought-provoking one (…) Puntuación: ★★★ (sobre 4)"  POS

Vinnie Mancuso
"A much smarter, much more meditative film than marketing might have you believe (...) It’s not a perfect movie by a long shot, but it’s certainly one that has more to say than ka-boom."  NEU

Adam Graham
Detroit News
"It would be easy for Chandor and Boal to take [it] down an obvious path, but the direction they choose is more complex, morally damning, and affecting (...) A smart heist movie with a conscience and a soul."  POS

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone
"[It] gets a pass as mindless escapism but its attempt to sell itself as something deeper is beyond redemption. (…) Rating: ★★½ (out of 5)"  NEU
