Legend Film Review
A lot of hype was surrounding the new film Starring Tom Hardy. We thought with this much interest around the release of ‘Legend’ it was a film we would have to review for you.
The film depicts the story of the two legendary gangster twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray. These two historical brothers ran the organised crime empire that was situated in East London during the 1960’s.
Tom Hardy plays both brothers and does a very good job of it. With slightly different looks and quirks each brother is identifiable and unique whilst still similar to one another in a manner only brothers can achieve. This is testament to Hardy’s acting ability. The film also has a strong support cast of actors including Emily Browning, Paul Bettany and Taron Egerton.
The film is based on true events and is suppose portray the Kray’s in a true to life manner, however many have questioned exactly how accurate the depiction is. If you do not let the accuracy of the film bother you and just enjoy it as the story that is told I’m sure you will have an enjoyable screening.
We gave this film an 8.5/10 and suggest if you are a fan of gangster films or just a film fan at all you will love ‘Legend’. If you want a taste of what you can expect, watch the trailer below:
