Screener Squad: Villain

Villian Movie Review


Eddie Franks (Craig Fairbrass) just can’t catch a break. After getting out of prison, all he wants to do is go back to working his pub and making amends with his estranged daughter (Izuka Hoyle). However, with his brother (Nicholas Aaron) having accrued a massive debt with local drug lords, it looks like the criminal underworld is going to drag Eddie right back in, with devastating consequences. Mindy, Adrian, and Lewayne discuss whether this British crime drama ends up a gangster’s paradise, or turns out to be a grasser (whatever that means. They still don’t know, but are pretty sure it’s bad.).
