I love big, dumb fun as much as anyone, but you need all three to make a successful mindless movie.
“Yardie” is further proof that you can’t simply shove a camera in a respected actor’s hand and call them a director.

The story may be well told, but in the most irritating fashion.
This movie is better than nothing, but not as good as you want it to be.
