Low budget but surprisingly good
23 July 2014 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Victim is a small drama set in London. It follows a young man trying to cope with raising his sister alone whilst pursuing a life of crime to help him fund it. The main message of the film unsurprisingly given the title is that everyone is a victim in some way. It does raise some interesting questions though it's message that sometimes crime is the only way doesn't sit easily with me.

It's grim setting is perfect for the tone of the film. The script is a bit uneven and the relationship between the two main characters is somewhat underplayed and flimsy. However the story moves along at a quick pace and there is more than enough to keep your interest during it's short running time. The film really succeeds due to a charismatic performance by Ashley Chin as Tyson. The rest of the performances from a largely inexperienced cast are pretty mixed but there are no awful performances.

There are a few violent scenes but nothing too bad and there are a few well thought out scenes. Many films fail on there ending but this one did succeed for me, being both unexpected and poignant.

Overall, once I got past the first 15 minutes, I did enjoy this film and found it to be a worthwhile effort. Worth watching if you're in the mood for some grim drama.
