Legend


Director: Brian Helgelan

Starring: David Thewlis , Emily Browning, Christopher Eccleston, Taron Egerton, Tom Hardy, Chazz Palminteri

Yet another bio pic of the Krey twin, Londons’ most notorious hoods from the 60s. Reggie and Ronnie Kray (both played by Tom Hardy) were East End gangster twins that terrorised the Swinging Sixties and almost brought down the UK Government. Reggie the charming rogue and club-owner criminal; and Ronnie a violent unstable paranoid schizophrenic and chief enforcer of the London underworld are both captured by Hardy who makes for compelling viewing on the big screen. The movie is told from the perspective of Francis Shea (Emily Browning), the mousey and vulnerable bride of Reggie Kray.
