Tom Hardy, Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Taron Egerton
There’s about an hour and forty minutes of good stuff here. Unfortunately, this biopic is nearly two hours and fifteen minutes long. It also focuses on the boring parts. Legend doesn’t completely claim what’s shocking about its real-life story.
The flick does offer the gimmick of Tom Hardy playing twins. Set in 1960s London and concerning two very fascinating gangster personalities, it should have had so much more. It should’ve explored Ronnie Kray’s violent sexuality and his and his brother’s dangerous commitment to each other, even as their relationship promised ruin.
