What units “Triple Frontier” aside is its capacity to subvert expectations at each flip, because the narrative doesn’t persist with the cut-and-dry format of a standard heist film. Some sequences mimic the standard tenets of the heist style: there’s an epic break-in scene adopted by the collective realization that the money is hidden extra covertly than they anticipated, and other people ambush one another out of the blue to pursue their ulterior motives.
