I read the books when I was young, Yardie, Yush etc, and they were vivid and engrossing, and especially on my young and susceptible mind.This is a good idea as a series of films BUT a bad choice for Elba to do.Elba needs to make his mind up on whether he is the 'Suave & Sophisticated' - 'black' guy of now, or, the schizoid who picks and chooses when he wants to be the 'S & S' guy one day but then the 'ghetto black' dude the next?Elba has lost stock by doing this film and because he NOW needs to commit to the whole series, and Yardie was the best book but the film is poor?Firstly his family are Sierra Leone people, not Jamaican, and being 'black' or having 'some in you' does not mean you can cheat a 'ghetto' upbringing or give you the authority to push 'patois'? it is insecure and cringey asf.I get tired of seeing (and especially hearing) silly brown people desperately clinging on to being 'black' and in 2018+ it is 100% cheating, and my dad is like this also so don't get the wrong idea about me.There is a virus and it is 'blackness' and continuing to think that you are 'black' therefore thinking you can 'talk like dis blad innit' is not the agenda we should be encouraging today, and Elba is ripping us off by feeding unnecessary junk in our way.Elba is a middle aged man so perhaps it's time to be original and stop cheating a living with this desperate attempt at 'showing his roots'?Idris you are British and African, you ARE NOT Jamaican - are you embarrassed by this? Seeing Africans talking like Jamaicans is cringey (as if being Jamaican is better?) is annoying, and children of ist generation African British families who speak or think they can claim 'struggle privilege' does my head in, seriously. Rubbish film

The Synopsis for Yardie (2018) 720p
Set in '70s Kingston and '80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood, of his older brother Jerry Dread (Everaldo Creary). D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd). Fox dispatches him to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he's not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow "the righteous path", he encounters the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier, and embarks on a bloody, explosive quest for retribution - a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham).

Does Elba wish he was of Jamaican descent, and not African? Cringey ASF...Reviewed bydillllinja-83111Vote: 4/10
Documentary drama, BBC Films / B.F.I. production.
Set in 1970's & 80's Jamaica and London.
The protagonist ('D' or Dennis) is traumatised by his brother's murder, can he forgive or avenge the killer? 'D' is sent to London to deliver a 1KG bag of cocaine. The film had moments of excellence, though I imagine that was due to accomplished editing rather than talented directing. Some of the Rasta dialogue was hard to understand, but stick with it - you'll generally get the gist.
This is an effective commentary on the current state of violent in London / UK.
The themes explored are crime, revenge, family, drugs, and black culture.
Worth a watch.
While this film might not be everyones cup of tea I thought it was enjoyable. There are some moments that are reminiscent of classic films in this genre like The Warriors but for the most part it is very fresh and has a great soundtrack. The main actors in it did a great job and I would definitely recommend it.
