Sporting an all-star cast of some of Hollywood’s most in-demand and diverse leading men, Triple Frontier is the latest Netflix original action movie about a group of ex-military operatives who raid a cartel compound. Bound by the sort of brotherhood forged by being constantly under fire on dangerous missions for the special forces, they decide to pillage a drug dealer’s insanely large payload as compensation for all their unrecognized heroic efforts.
Spoilers for Triple Frontier follow below.
