It's deeply flawed narratively.
This is flamboyant, colourful stuff. It's style over substance, with little social or political context.
You need a major pinch of salt, as thugs roam the streets with guns and machetes. And there's not a strong female character to be seen. With the humour and violence sit uncomfortably together.
So the film doesn't work, but for all that is an entertaining ride.
Great directorial debut from Idris Elba.
A somewhat boring and long drawn out effort.
Pretty decent considering that it's Idre's directorial debute. Not as good as "Shottas", but it's worth checking out.
Classic. Yardie defines a regional mentality. Left me weeping for days. So beautiful.
Honestly, ignore all the arty farty middle class critic reviews. This is a really engaging film and Aml Ameen is so good in it. This film deserves a higher rating. It made me think and feel. One of the best films I've seen this year.
A well done film, but all in subtitles.
Yardie was :fire: it had a very realistic story for the time period and the plot was solid
Ignore the lukewarm reviews. Yardie is an authentic slice of JA life at home & in East London, with all its inherent drama, stylistic posturing, and keen humor. A worthy successor to The Harder They Come. And the music!
