Critic Reviews for Yardie

All Critics (6) | 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.

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.

It's never quite clear what is driving D, or if he has some sort of master plan. Despite copious amount of voiceover narration, it's unclear what his intentions are.

Although Elba stretches the narrative to its limits, this is a nicely-shot, -cast and -told period story of black Britain - when so few exist - with a geniality that cuts through some of its bleaker moments.
