100 Word Review – Legend

Tom Hardy is absolutely brilliant as Ronnie and Reggie Kray. Managing to successfully portray both the innate similarities twins have whilst differentiating them is no easy task. As a twin I’m well placed to judge!

Despite that, I didn’t particularly like Legend.

That’s due to one thing; criminal glamorisation. As a true story making what these guys did seem remotely cool doesn’t sit well with me. They aren’t Robin Hoods; it’s purely about power, ego and violence.

Legend is well acted all round and well put together. Emily Browning deserves particular credit too. It’s just not my cup of tea.
