As a Londoner i realised that a movie like this had never been made. We don't have any movies or historical reference material which provides insight into the journey Jamaican expats made and what it was like to settle iinto the Uk during the 70s and 80s. Its scandalous that this movie hasn't been made before. Although the book makes us despise the lead character D, in the movie he came across as captivating. Human, flawed and often funny. In fact there is this trail of humour which filters through the dialogue which is also my experience of being with my Jamaican friends. Sometimes <more>
humour in unlikely places in the movie especially with the audience's attitude to Rico. A nasty yet colorful character played by a white man who sounds Jamaican and it turns out Steven Graham does actually have Jamaican heritage and grew up in a Caribbean neighbourhood in Manchester as a child. He is excellent in this movie. The lead actress who plays D's wife has never been in a movie before and her performance electrified the screen. Part of the generation of Jamaicans who came over to work in the NHS, she represents all that is good and solid in the community. I found it fascinating and felt it was important for all Londoners and Jamaicans to see this movie. A slice of our history
4 of us went to see this film and we all loved it. Casting was spot on, soundtrack brilliant, loyal to the book and great scenes. Disagree with all the people on here saying it needs subtitles and had no plot - so all films end with all loose ends resolved? Don't think so. Use your imagination - it's clear he's survived, with his family, that's the point.
disappointment of reviews on here (by rattyrat)
Ok this film is not ground breaking but i feel its score is ludicrous - the main problem seems to be the patois spoken ,,,really ? why did you even watch a film called yardie ? were you expecting Philip Smith of Rising Damp eloquently English accent maybe ? one lengthy reviewer said a mysterious woman just appeared - again really ? were you actually watching ? again im not going to pretend this was an outstanding film of this genre but i personally thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the bleakness of eighties Britain was credible in most parts . maybe if you have never had any experience of any <more>
of this culture or "brown people "which seems to be a common descriptive term used on this page then maybe ...maybe thats why your review is so baffling to me .the sound track is simply exceptional .
Go see this film!Idris Elba's directorial debut is almost perfect. Straight off the bat, I am giving this a 9/10.Such a great film. Most of it is spoken in strong Jamaican twang, so you have to really concentrate on the words that are being spoken, but you soon get used to it, and by having the characters speak that strongly, Elba has helped the authenticity of the whole piece come together. Everything is helped along by a phenomenal soundtrack and top drawer acting.As we follow D's plight from a young age, seeing the tragedy, before growing up and falling into one of the gangs he had <more>
been helping attempt to unite as a child. He ends up in London, reuniting with his love and their daughter. He creates tensions between all the different players in the games at hand and gets deeper and deeper into trouble.I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this film. It's got heart and tension, there's a spatter of comedy, but more trauma and distress. I am going to go away and read the novel now!Idris...you nailed it!
Idris came through. Yardie painted a nice picture of the struggles of Jamaica and being Jamaican in 80s London was like. I enjoyed it and would recommend.
Independent British Film Stamped On It! (by aarash-ahmadi)
From the get go, the way the film is shot grips you. A film with some rough edges, but a great cast of actors and a brilliant story line. Idris Elba has really made a mark in his debut of directing.
Solid and stylish debut (by BongoJustice)
Well well, a lot of the people on here complaining that they "couldn't understand half the dialogue". Um...It's a movie called Yardie, about Jamaicans. In fact the dialogue is perfectly intelligible, so ignore these Daily Mail fools. Try watching Rockers if you want to hear real patios. Though I suspect you may not, it'd probably send you into an apoplectic gammon rage .Also some of these reviews are trashing the movie out of hand. I can't imagine what their problem can be with Ghanaian-descended actor and director Idris Elba. Seriously guys if you just plain <more>
don't like black people there's a name for that and you probably shouldn't watch movies about Jamaicans. Some people also complaining that the director isn't Jamaican. Presumably they're also furious that Spielberg isn't an alien, or a dinosaur.With that out of the way, this is a visually and sonically sumptuous movie. It looks gorgeous and while the plot is fairly standard gangster fare I haven't read the book so I judge the film purely on its own merits it's an enjoyable and well made film, and definitely worth your time.Ignore the obvious hater comments and make your own mind up.
Yardie: A powerful tale of life, love and gangsters in Jamaica, a story of vengeance and young lives tainted by violence at an early age. 1973, D's Ami Amheen DJ brother is murdered when he tries to bring peace to warring gangs. D is adopted by one of the gang chiefs, King Fox Sheldon Shepherd who is also a Reggae producer. Eventually D is sent to London in 1983 as his thirst for revenge is causing problems with another gang. D is also tasked with bringing cocaine to Rico Stephen Graham , a Jamaican gang boss in Hackney. Seeing that Rico is psychotic, D decides to go independent but <more>
remains loyal to King Fox.The unfolding of this drama, especially in the London scenes, is hampered by very strong Jamaican accents and a form of the Jamaican patois which is difficult to understand. This limits the accessibility of the film and it's potential audience. This is unfortunate because in his debut as director manages some original twists on the gangster fil and the young man seeking vengeance motifs. Subtitles really would have helped here, just as they would in most of Ken Loach's Scottish films. D meets up with his estranged partner Yvonne Shantol Jackson and their child, she becomes a pawn in the resulting war between gangs but D's relationship with them is crucial to himself and to the film's denouement. We see Hackney clubs where D becomes an MC, the shootouts, kidnappings, the music, love, but the past looms over all of it.A potentially great film weakened by lack of subtitles. 8/10.
