Thin Ice Film Trailer Review

When I first watched this trailer I really thought that this was some sort of a comedy or dark comedy, but it is not. Thin Ice is a crime drama film about a con-man picking the wrong choices and ultimately suffers the consequences.

So what about the trailer? It generally gives us what the film is aboutm but doesn't spoil what will happen next and how will the protagonist (assuming that it is Kinnear) get out of the mess he unfortunately created himself. The whole concept itself of a con-man chasing after a violin is probably gave the lighter vibe to it and thus the trailer somehow using a more upbeat trailer song, which in turn made me presuppose that this is a comedy. But since the element of death and blackmail is added to the mix, this may very well game punch to this film, making it a potential intelligently written crime film.
