Triple Frontier

Santiago ā€Popeā€ Garcia (Oscar Isaac) gathers a team of friends, all retired Special Forces soldiers, for a mission to Colombia where they intend to steal millions of dollars from a drug lord. A change of pace for J.C. Chandor, whoā€™s not exactly famous for his action-thrillers ā€“ but he has plenty of help from co-writer Mark Boal whoā€™s even won an Oscar for writing about soldiers. Together theyā€™ve crafted an unremarkable story that gets a shot in the arm from Chandorā€™s confident direction and likable performances; the Colombian jungle heist and subsequent escape through the Andes offer satisfying thrills.

2019-U.S. 125 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ J.C. Chandor. Screenplay: Mark Boal, J.C. Chandor. Cast: Ben Affleck (Tom ā€Redflyā€ Davis), Oscar Isaac (Santiago ā€Popeā€ Garcia), Charlie Hunnam (William ā€Ironheadā€ Miller), Garrett Hedlund, Pedro Pascal, Adria Arjona.Ā 

Trivia: Co-executive produced by Kathryn Bigelow, who at one point was going to direct. Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum were reportedly considered for roles.
