Netflix’s new military action flick looks like ‘Narcos’ meets ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ | Task and Purpose

Netflix’s new military action flick looks like ‘Narcos’ meets ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ | Task and Purpose

A new trailer for Netflix’s Triple Frontier dropped last week, and it looks like a gritty mash-up of post-9/11 war dramas Zero Dark Thirty and Hurt Locker and crime thrillers Narcos and The Town.

The movie’s star-studded cast includes Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal, just about all of whom have tried their hand (successfully) at either crime dramas, action flicks, or both.

Triple Frontier is directed and co-written by J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year, All is Lost, Margin Call) who’s joined on the writing front by Mark Boal (Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty.)

Here’s the basic premise: A bunch of ex-operators who are pissed about their shitty retirement pay, crap benefits, and limited career prospects following their distinguished SOF careers come up with a plan, and no, it’s not to found their own apparel company.
