Triple 9

Brutal crime drama from the director of 2009's The Road that sees criminals and corrupt cops banding together for a massive heist. Stars Aaron Paul, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Norman Reedus and Kate Winslet.

A crew of dirty cops are blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999 - police code for "officer down". Their plan goes to hell when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
