Bless Danny Dyer – he tries his best. After a string of box office flops which make his good films like ‘The Football Factory’ and ‘The Business’ seem like they were set in some weird, parallel reality, he’s going for a tried and tested formula – namely the ‘revenge’ film.

Danny’s his usual cockney self. Only this time he’s an ex marine returning home from jail (I did briefly recall why he was locked up, but it doesn’t really matter) to find a gang of local hooligans have only gone and roasted his mum and dad alive. And, to make matters worse, the police seem powerless to arrest anyone. Therefore, Danny must take matters into his own hands (or ‘ands as he would call them) and deliver his own unique brand of justice.

Unfortunately, watching unlikeable characters getting brutally murdered may be mildly entertaining (as we’ve all see some little thugs defacing a bus stop and wished extreme punishment upon them), but it’s hardly unique any more. Ever since Charles Bronson took the law into his own hands there have been countless imitations. Some work okay, others don’t. But they all have the same message – namely about how the law doesn’t always work and sometimes you have to root for the ‘antihero’ to get the job done himself. Recently, Michael Caine released ‘Harry Brown’ and Jodie Foster did ‘The Brave One’ a few years before that. Both were equally unoriginal, but at least they had more of a budget than Vendetta.

It’s an okay enough film, but it just doesn’t really have anything new contained within. Danny Dyer does his best (as he normally does) to portray a tortured soul, living on the outskirts of society, but, unfortunately, he doesn’t quite pull it off. There’s a sub-plot about the various police officers assigned to the case (and the area in general), but many of them come across as too uncaring and inept to be believable.

If you’re a die-hard Dyer fan, you’ll probably enjoy this more. However, if you’re just a casual fan of revenge movies, you’ll have probably seen better than this. It may not be Dyer’s finest work, or up to The Football Factory or The Business, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

Dyer proving to us he's a one trick pony, in this he's more pony than ever before.

He has a beard, he dad played by the firm leader from football factory also turns up in a beard but thankfully quickly departs, he's terrible in this too.

Then his friend copper, a bearded man, helps him out a bit, problem is he has so many lines to spiel out he ends up sounding like a speed fed south african speak and spell, he gets worst performance ever gong for this.

As he seeks vendetta on street dudes the police get onto him, but low and behold in a plot taken stright from Rambo 1 his army captain shows up, a bearded man from bonded by blood, the next thing you know the spooks turn up and they are clean shaven and powerful, to save the day.

What happens from there on in is hyperthetical in every way, but notably the midget who is the lead in rise of the footsoldier and has clearly tried very hard to grow a beard is on his side, he's now the leader of the met police "swat team", yes I know.

What this film does is use the same old actors in the same old clothes with the same old haircuts, puts them together with a very poor script and destroys what could have been a good story, it's a shame that other talent out there is not being used because this is destroying british film potential and I for on and completely bored of it.

Jimmy Vickers (Danny Ryer) returns to London and discovers his parents have been murdered by a gang. Jimmy was in special ops in Afghanistan and he vows revenge. He is given a lead by Griff (Michael Ryan) a friend on the police force. He goes Charles Bronson on the gang with his Rambo training, making each kill slow and painful.

The film leads things open for sequels. The movie is straight forward without much in the way of twists or surprises, following a standard successful formula set forth in the "Death Wish" series. Fans of "Death Wish" will find enjoyment in this film.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity

Danny Dyer returns from Afghan duty; finds his parents murdered by low-life scum who all get their come-uppance in increasingly bloody and contrived ways.You have seen it all before but stylishly done in a non demanding way.
