The Most Surprisingly Exquisite Film of the year! (by Movie_Minx_77)
First off, hats off to the acting in this film - the cast did an amazing job. I was worried when I saw the trailer but I gave it a chance and I'm so glad I did. Truly a very well put together film, with a plot that carried it through and several audience members including myself cried at times. It showed the brothers in a different light. Allowing the audience to love them, hate them, sympathise and empathise with them. Tom hardy played both brothers excellently and hats off to the supporting actress who played Frances Kray - she did a fantastic job. A film you could re-watch again and <more>
again, the atmosphere and the wardrobe were key aspects of this film and the director delivered on pulling out all the stops. The script was beautifully written. That said, I'd ask you to remember that this film is from one take on the Krays, they were a complex pair and short of holding a séance, we will never know what went on in their minds - this film is an adaptation of an account. Though in my own opinion it was probably the most accurate hollywood portayl that has been produced to date.Judge it on what you see, don't waste time with trailers that spoil parts for you. Buy a ticket and some popcorn and enjoy!
A Masterclass in acting from Tom Hardy (by iepw12)
I guess if you want to know the history of the Kray Twins, you can google it and I'm sure all the historical facts will be there. The thing which makes this film so good, is everything about it. You could be tempted to say as I have in my heading , it is a masterclass in acting but it is just so good in all other respects right down to the two brief cameos by John Sessions as Lord somebody to Kevin McNally as Harld Wilson.Everything about it was utterly believable without all the stylised stereo types we have grown accustomed to with films about East End gangsters. Oh yes and whilst we <more>
see blood occasionally it didn't take on the proportions of a cartoon which again seems to be the stock in trade of most Hollywood efforts. This was an extremely well made film about real people who were larger than life characters but at no point did it stray into caricature largely due to excellent directing and outstanding performances from Tom Hardy , ably supported by Emily Browning Paul Bettany and of course Chris Eccleston. The periodness seemed perfect to me again without all the silly stereotypes associated with films set at this period and the street sets were stunning in their film noir appeal . If Tom Hardy doesn't get at least nominated for an Oscar then there is no justice but the entire production was nothing short of superb.
Tom Hardy's best performance yet, throughout the whole film he managed to keep an obvious difference between Ronnie and Reggie; down to the mannerisms, how they walk and how they talk. I kept forgetting that Tom was playing both characters! It would have been so easy for Tom to make Ronnie come across as mindless, cold human being who put no thought into anything but he gave Ronnie so many dimensions within his character, coming across as a guy who is charming, funny, and almost innocent but not fully in control in his actions... how Hardy pulled this off while acting as Reggie as well <more>
i'll never know.If Hardy doesn't win awards for this there is something wrong. I watched The Rise of The Krays recently and felt the opposite towards Ronnie in that film as he just came across as a senseless human that just got a thrill out of beating people up with little to no thought but not with Tom Hardy's portrayal of Ronnie. As the film progressed i felt myself really warming to Ronnie. I felt like I understood him, he came across as a guy where his heart is in the right place but he just didn't know how to react to certain situations, lashing out irrationally more often than not but you kind of forgive it as Hardy has set up a solid foundation of the fact he is a caring person deep down, how he managed to do this while playing Reggie and nailing that as well i will never know. Well done Tom... Well done. Visually excellent. All the locations were beautifully shot and felt authentic to its time. The costume design was awesome. I know it may seem simple but the suits they were wearing, screamed class about them. Every single shot was thought about, I won't give any spoilers but if you see a close up it means something not like other films where close ups are overused so don't just surpass a close up.Also i loved at the start that when Ronnie says "that's interesting". Apparently he doesn't know what he's on about or doesn't understand when he says this so throughout the film when he says "that's interesting" it's a nice cue to let us understand how Ronnie is digesting a situation... it may not sound like much but i personally thought it was used incredibly effectively. Editing was on point. There isn't a lot to be said about the editing as it's amazing, you'd think it would be hard to edit this film together considering Tom is playing the main characters so splitting them up etc. and yes it would be hard but at no point was there a hiccup that took me out of the film. Richard Ayoade's The Double has the same idea of playing one actor for the two main characters and it was okay but seemed to play it safe whereas this film just pushed the boundaries so much and managed to pull it off above and beyond of what I expected. Casting was spot on and the film is so stylish, The rule of thirds game was strong in this film and they used that to their advantage in the sense that it would be very easy to be distracted by Tom playing Ronnie and Reggie... I know Tom Hardy's performance was so good we didn't notice it but Brian Helgeland obviously wanted to play it extra safe by really thinking about where he placed the shots and where they were standing. Best example i can give is when they are sat in the room with Leslie Payne and they are sat on opposite sides of the room, now, that could look awkward and be maybe distracting as they do hold the shot but they really think about how to set up the shot so the visual and aesthetic appreciation takes away any distraction that Tom Hardy plays the same character and this mentality is carried throughout the entire film.All in all amazing film, thoroughly enjoyed it. This will go up in my top 5 favorite films. Tom Hardy should get an Oscar for this!
A fantastic film with an amazing performance (by alindsay-al)
The trailer for this film had me so excited for this film and I can report that this film does not disappoint because it is fantastic. The premise of this film sees two identical brothers who are the biggest gangsters in London and sees there rise to power. Now tom hardy plays Reggie and ron kray and my goodness this is the best acting I have seen because of how unique it is and how different the two characters are. First to the lead Reggie, he is the charming one of the two and you truly see that as the film grows and he is complex but flawed at the same time. He had allot of confidence and <more>
swagger but you see sometimes how low his confidence can get. Then you get to ron and he is one of the funniest characters of the year. You can tell there just isn't something right with him but he is lovable and you end up liking his character. Emily browning plays Reggie's wife and she does a great job in this film. She truly brings out the humanity in both of the krays and she was a great cog in this film. Taron Edgerton was good in this film even though he didn't have a huge role I'm looking forward to seeing him in more things in the future. The story is fantastic just seeing these two completely different brothers interact and rise in power is enthralling. Also the romance was great in the film really adding a great emotional level to the film. The script is utterly amazing, the humour is constant and it always works. The drama was all fantastic too and brings the best out of the story and characters. The style of the action scenes were fantastic and really were great when they happened. However, there is a bit of a pacing issue in the film and it does hurt the film overall. Overall this is a fantastic dramatic film with two performances worthy of an Oscar by tom hardy and is a must see.
Tom Hardy is just.......AMAZING!!!! (by CyniLogical)
I have to confess that I could never finish or even forced myself to watch any British gangster films until this "Legend". At first, I thought I just might give it a try and predicted that as usual, I'd quit within 5 or 10 minutes, because 99.9% out of 100, the British gangster movies sucked. The reason why I decided to give it a try was because of Tom Hardy, since any film he played turned out to be very good. And this film, Lordy, Lordy, he was just amazing, playing two completely different persons and characters as twin brothers. This kind of performance is simply at genius <more>
level, so good that I simply couldn't find word to describe or praise him. I think Tom Hardy is not only one of the best actors in 21st Century, he IS the BEST! What a great gift to movie history and civilization. There's nothing I could express more.
***SPOILER ALERT***This film is amazing- it captures the Kray's reign with accuracy, humour and style. Gorgeously filmed, brilliantly acted if Tom Hardy doesn't win awards there's something very wrong and deftly written. There's also some great humour in this movie. Hardy as Ronnie is like some kind of comedy genius. At the screening I went to a portion of the audience were hanging on every one of Ronnie's words and laughing along with him.But above all the film is like a love letter to London. The locations are beautifully filmed and the whole film feels authentic to <more>
its time.Oh, and this film is violent as hell. One fight scene involves Ronnie using a hammer in each hand instead of his fists. You've been warned.Highly recommended
Outstanding crime picture and Hardy is a LEGEND . (by Troy_Campbell)
The infamous Kray brothers – identical twins Reggie and Ronnie – are so well known in British gangster history they've already had multiple films made about them. What writer-director Brian Helgeland brings to the table with his take on the notorious siblings is exuberant storytelling, classy visual styling and a tour de force performance by Tom Hardy as both twins. Hardy's dual turn is undeniably the centrepiece of the movie. His Reggie is all charm and swagger, with intelligence and ambition to boot, whilst the schizophrenic Ronnie is a short-tempered ball of emotional bluster. <more>
Helgeland sensibly opts to make Reggie the focus; of the two he is the more grounded one, a gangster with lofty aspirations and the ability to interact on a human level with those around him to make his goals a reality. There is also genuine chemistry between Hardy as Reggie and Emily Browning, her fragile yet strong-willed Frances able to draw out the romantic side of Reggie, making his bursts of savagery all the more terrifying. Sporadically placed throughout the overlong two hour plus runtime, the bouts of violence bubble with intensity and exhilaration, often uneasily enjoyable thanks to moments of levity sprinkled alongside them. The 60s setting is capitalised on too, Dick Pope's elegant photography giving proceedings a classical feel while Carter Burwell's powerfully soulful score affects deeply at all the right times. There's a sense of glorification here that mightn't sit well with some audience members, however the Krays were adored in the East End and to deny the glitzier parts of their life would be to deny what made them popular to begin with. An exceptional crime picture with two outstanding performances from one man, proving again that Hardy really is an acting legend.
Tom Hardy gives an all time great performance, double acting as both the notorious Kray twins. The story is also quite comedic, clever and full of some great thrilling scenes. One of the great things about this film is you know what you're going to get, and it delivers, then some. It's bloody on top of witty, charming and fun. Legend serves up one of the great films of the year, whilst also being quite modest in its approach. With Tom Hardy's already established terrific acting skills, Legend becomes something more then a typical gangster crime film. It feels invested into making <more>
the viewer content with its two hour runtime, whilst always respecting. The award for best actor goes to Tom Hardy, for sure.
The original film about the subject "The Krays" 1990 had Billie Whitelaw as their mother and, somehow, she dominated my memory of the film. Here the twins have a mother but she is, on the film, a distant character and that's what I missed here. I missed their interaction. She clearly had a massive influence in their characters but in Legend, those pieces of the puzzle are unfortunately missing. But, Tom Hardy compensates for any flaws. He is extraordinary, twice. The twins are total individuals, totally two people. What they carry in common is a sort of sexual danger, one <more>
explicitly the other implicitly but both as powerful. They dare us to get close. Amazing performance s
