Movie Info

Tyson, Mannie and Jason grew up together in a tough inner-city world, where no one could be trusted and everyone was out for themselves. With opportunities limited, it's crime that pays the bills. For Tyson, it's not about living the lifestyle, it's about supporting his little sister, Nyla, through school and paying off his mum's gambling debts. When he meets Tia, she helps him see there are other ways to escape the cycle of poverty. But with a final job promising a big pay day, Tyson prepares to take his biggest gamble yet. Caught up in an escalating chain of violent events, will he have to make the ultimate sacrifice?

  • It doesn't quite come together, yet there's some rough'n'ready force.

  • Both script and cast deserved better.

  • This is solidly made, but once you get past the attempts at realism - the banter, the backstories, the music, the clothes - it's a desperately corny yarn.

  • There is no social realism here despite the clear attempt to say something, and backing it all to a soundtrack of garish British rap ultimately generates more guffaws than thrills.

  • The set-ups are familiar, the characters well worn and the film-makers' message (we are all victims) writ cornily large. But co-writer Chin is an imposing screen presence of whom we may expect more in future.

  • Preachy and cliched, Victim has some merit in the bantering dialogue and fresh, appealing performances but all the good intentions don't necessarily add up to a good film.
