Triple Frontier

Triple Frontier is Kelly's Heroes (1970), without Kelly. And without heroes. It's Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), without Bogart. And without character.

Triple Frontier is a cruel movie. None of the characters are defined with any depth. They left their substance in the past. In the present, they are willfully one-dimensional. The level of character is that one cares about donkeys; another doesn't.
