‘Thoroughbreds’ Bullet Point Review

Using bullet points, I’m going to give you my thoughts on this sociopath teen thriller….‘Thoroughbreds’!

 

  • I enjoyed the eccentric haunting score
  • The acting from the two leading ladies, Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy, was great and carried the movie along with the script
    • Cooke’s alleged emotionless sociopath was the best and she gave the best performance of her young promising career
  • I can see how this movie was either originally a play or initially written as a play first
    • The way it’s written is for the dialogue to be the action and then the actual action isn’t shown/happens off screen
  • It’s slow paced which hinders itself and a fully developed understanding for why the murder scheme is developed isn’t shown
    • Lily (Taylor-Joy) seriously wants her step-dad killed for meddling in her life?
  • R.I.P. Anton Yelchin. He gave a good performance for his last role
  • To Sum it Up: My fandom for Cooke and Taylor-Joy, their great performances and great script made this slow under-developed movie a fun watch
