Yardie, directed by Idris Elba, is set in both Kingston in the 1970s and Hackney in the 1980s. It focuses on D, played by Aml Ameen, a young Jamaican man who has never recovered from his brother’s murder. It may have been committed during his childhood, but it left a wound that never healed.
After growing up under the wing of King Fox, a Kingston Don and music producer, D heads out to London. He reconnects with both his childhood sweetheart and his daughter, who he’s not seen since she was a baby. There’s a chance that he’ll follow a righteous path, but he comes across the man who killed his brother. Of course, he can’t help but head off on a path of vengeance.
Reviews on Rotten Tomatoes are mixed. Critics and audiences sit at 55% and 56% respectively. Elba’s directorial efforts have certainly proven to be positive, even if the end pacing has been part of the reason for the negative reviews.
