Blog: Legend – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Ultimately Legend is a film that is made or broken on it’s performances and in this case what you have is probably one of Tom Hardy’s best as he plays both Ronnie and Reggie Kray.  Aside from that simply stunning central performance the rest of the film is a bit hit and miss.  With a voice over that just doesn’t work, to it’s slow and sloth like pacing at times this is a film thats hard to love.  But when the Kray’s kick off the film natural picks up.  So overall interesting but hardly essential.

Best Bit: Hardy

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: The Krays, Essex Boys, Rise & Fall of The Krays
