Movie Info

After 10 years, Eddie Franks (Craig Fairbrass) is out of prison and trying to stay on the straight and narrow, but his drug-mule brother Sean (George Russo) has other ideas. Rival gangster brothers Roy and Johnny Garret (Robert Glenister and Tomi May) are demanding Sean repay his debt to them, causing Eddie to get tangled in the crossfire, ending up using his life savings and calling in favors with mobster friends to try and help. Following a dramatic coup at the family pub, events spiral out of control in the ultimate fight for survival. With a powerful performance from Fairbrass, VILLAIN is a gritty British thriller which depicts a dark, criminal underworld.

  • A muted Fairbrass does some good on-camera brooding, but the character and the film never feel like more than a paper-thin pose.

  • But Villain feels like twenty-first-century London: racially diverse, divided along class and privilege lines, scared of the young, scared of getting old.

    Top Critic
  • Sometimes a seemingly unprepossessing genre film comes along that has finer qualities than you would expect. Such is the case here.

    February 27, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • With more depth of character than the usual London crime thriller, this gritty drama finds some surprising resonance in between the usual scenes of vicious threats and gruesome violence.

    March 2, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Barantini's Villain is a genre film but a rather superior, well-made one that manipulates your sympathies.
