Victim

2

Another unremarkable Brit thriller

Teens go on the rob to feed their families in this unremarkable Brit friller.
 
Home Counties girl Tia (Ashley Madekwe) moves in with London cousin Davina (Anna Nightingale), who’s part of a gang fleecing city boys. But the operation comes under threat when Tia falls for leader of the pack Tyson (Ashley Chin).
 
Its Heat-style smash-and-grabs (but with binmen) seem even smaller on the small screen, while the sight of young RADA graduates trying to talk tower block doesn’t do wonders for its cred.
 
But the ending raises its game, and any film that includes the line “I used to watch Art Attack” can’t be all bad.
