Critic Reviews for Yardie

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

As it stands, Yardie seldom amounts to anything more than a collection of vaguely related scenes, simultaneously both too muddled and too straightforward to have any resonance beyond the moment at hand.

"Yardie" has the right look, the right sound and the right moves to play with the bigger boys of its genre; like its young, scrappy but naive hero, however, there's not quite enough power behind its posturing.

It's a pedestrian effort that could have used a serious hit of Elba's dangerous charisma onscreen.

January 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Throughout the messy experience of "Yardie," [Idris] Elba's interest in storytelling gets ahead of his lacking visual instincts. Though I'm curious to see what story he tells next, Elba proves to not yet have an original voice behind the camera.

The familiar elements of Yardie outweigh the delightfully offbeat ones, leaving the final product feeling fairly forgettable - but with glimmers of hope that Elba can pull it together for a far more accomplished sophomore effort.

In his feature debut, [Idris] Elba shows some promise that he'll be as good behind the camera as he is in front of it.
