at first i was unsure about tom hardy playing both roles as the kray brothers. but he pulled it off amazing acting work. the film is very interesting plenty of action and the script is well written. classic gangster film right here.
The true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ronnie Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in a powerhouse double performance. Together, the Kray Twins take over the city. But as their reign expands, power-struggles, fierce madness, and a woman diminishes their bond; the weak link that could cause their empire to collapse. Legend is a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray twins.
Really great movie but where is the audio commentary the same as the Blu-ray release??? Come on iTunes!! Please add the audio commentary
One of the best films I've ever watched, love it.
Fantastic film. Well worth watching 10/10
You have too know a little about London in the 60s to enjoy this film well written well acted. Well worth a look. 10-10 (not pr person) Bermondsey citizen..
How many dozens of people died ?
Hardy is one of my favourite actors but this movie is horrific. The story seems to go no where and not one of the characters can be taken seriously.
The worst "cockney gangster film" I have seen, and there are some very bad ones.
Brilliant...! Great performance by Tom Hardy.
Crap. Charges you and doesn't download
Portrays the infamous Kray gang amazingly. Only criticism is that it doesn't show emphasis on what the Krays really did.
Tom Hardy's portrayal of both twins was astounding, normally this would be quite confusing to have one actor playing two rules but Hardy is superb and professional. Although not entirely accurate having read the profession of violence and the kray's autobiographies having it told from Frances' point of view was insightful and made it worth the watch.
Really confused about the poor reviews about this film! Tom Hardy is such a credit to this film! Absolute must watch!
Tom Hardy is great as usual, but the rest falls very flat. The CGI creating a 60s London backdrop is of a very poor standard and the narration very banal and when you combine this with a lazy script and bored actors then you have a very average film. By far the worst I have seen Tom Hardy in
I absolutely love this film Tom Hardy is fantastic. Absolutely loved him in mad max and his other films however this has got to be my favourite. Plays the twins fantastically literally forget it's the same person playing them. One of my all time favourite films now and for me beats the original. Watched it over and over again since I bought it
Tom hardy dose a fantastic performance of playing these two legendary London gangsters.
Totally shocked I liked this movie! It's surprisingly endearing at times and violent other times. Great story telling and really good acting, gets your emotions going. Well deserving of 5 stars.
Brilliant. Choose any superlative to describe this movie. Outstanding.
While Tom Hardy is good, as a whole the film is disappointing, slow and dull.
The movie is well worth watching nicely acted, the story has been told & retold, I hope this is the last, no mention of Charlie or the Dad, Tom Hardy does a decent job at playing both parts, not violent enough though, I have seen bigger scraps in my local boozer.
It’s worth a rent, but to buy it, not too sure..
Hardy was his usual brilliant self, without his watchability, the storyline was weak, went over a Kray story which we have all seen/heard a million times (jack the hat, cornell). Well worth a watch, but could have been soooo much better
I too had my reservations after thoroughly enjoying the original Krays film. After watching it I was pleasantly surprised just how good it was. Tom Hardy, who I didn't really think of as a top top actor also changed my mind, he is absolutely outstanding in this film & deserves any accolades he receives!! The film does have a lot more comical moments, but it is all the better for it with the psychotic moments in between. Very nearly 5*s
Tom Hardy was absolutely wonderful as both brothers. I haven't seen any of the past Kray films to make a true comparison but this film is truly amazing and I haven't been able to stop listening to the soundtrack. Sometimes the film lacked a core to its story but nevertheless I've recommended it to everyone!
I was looking forward to this film for ages so I was massively disappointed when I finally saw it.
The storyline is disjointed with huge chunks missing and honestly hardys portrayal of Ronnie was way over the top.
As others have said, the Kemps version of The Krays is a much better film.
Tom hardy is showing again what an amazing actor he is! This film is great, it looks more at the relationship between the Krays and the later years of their reign.
A must watch!!
How Tom Hardy didn't get an Oscar nomination for this I don't know. Superb. Incredible how you forget it's the same actor playing both twins.
Tom Hardy was great. Film not so much.
Tom hardy is fantastic whereas the story gets lost in itself really. Doesn't answer any questions and is a bit all over the place
This was watchable, OK, interesting… but nothing special. It won’t be remembered as a great film. Once you get past the novelty of double Hardy, his acting is just good, not great. worth a rent, only just.
I love Tom Hardy in most of his movies so was really looking forward to this, I was so disappointed, although he's good, the film is terrible, it's more comedy than gangster, not sure it's all accurate too but each to their own, I prefer the Kemp bros version better.
This film is funny, exiting, sad and full of Cool action. Tom Hardy is remarkable as both characters and the soundtrack is brilliant. Highly recommend it...
Dragged on and on
I enjoyed the movie. A comical performance from Tom Hardy. I was expecting a tired version, of the excellent, spandau ballet Kemp brothers.
Why not laugh it up. You gotta be at least 70 years old to remember those old gangsters!
One of the best movies I've ever seen!
I've watched this film 3 times now. Tom Hardy is a brilliant actor you wouldn't even know that he plays both of the Kray twins 😊
Even if you're not intrigued by the world of the Krays, you have to see this for Tom Hardy's double performance as Ron and Reg. Probably the best performance I've seen to date. Even without Hardy, it would have been worth watching for the story.
My favourite film of 2015 , brilliant performances from Tom hardy with an equally strong cast. Very funny throughout but still has the intensity and impact expected given the subject matter.
the reviews on here are all driven by marketing and PR people- fake
Tom Hardy is getting better and better by the next movie. The plot is funny it is scary it is exciting, a must have Brit Legend.by the way, I think the next Bond will be Tom. Keep up the good work mate 👍
Honestly, one of the best movies I’ve ever had the fortune to watch. Again, and again, again.
Great acting and direction. Hard to believe one person played both brothers in this movie. One of the best gangland movies ever.
As a massive fan of the Krays with the kemp brothers I thought this portrayal was very good, certainly blows 'rise of the krays' out of the water which I thought was more for TV than a movie...
TH is fantastic and as another review stated once you get over its the same actor it's totally believable. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Better then all previous films
Hardy is simply amazing. Plays both characters so well. Very easy 10/10 for me.
I went to see this at the cinema and can't wait to watch it again and own it.
