We gave it a C

Robbery churns the plot of this Texas noir about three churlish teens (Jeremy Allen White, Mackenzie Davis, and Logan Huffman) who cross a crime boss. Directors Zeke and Simon Hawkins add air-quote references to Jim Thompson, Steven Soderbergh, and the Coen brothers but are too proud of the movie’s twists to make them truly snap. Call it Blood Simple-ton. C
