Every hitman or murderer in a film has to have some kind of shtick, many like how a automobile peddler or genuine estate representative will take on some eye-catching aspect like a fun bowtie or fun accent. Anton Yelchin plays some kind of veteran torpedo in this trailer for Cory Finley’s Thoroughbreds, and his shtick seems to be that he acts like Anton Yelchin—which is fine, since Anton Yelchin was great. He’s only a ancillary actor in this, though, and a genuine story revolves around Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy, a span of teenage best friends who seem a bit scary interjection to a fact that one of them is a effervescent array of fury and a other is totally emotionless.
Perhaps a many critical thing about this trailer, though, is that it quotes The A.V. Club’s possess A.A. Dowd, who referred to Thoroughbreds as “superbly unpredictable” and “a razor-witted black comedy.” In a apart take—one that does not seem in this trailer—The A.V. Club’s possess Katie Rife said that a movie pulls off “the wily attainment of gripping a assembly intent with really unattached characters.”
