Legend (2015)

Crazy Violent Twins
Snoogans - wrote on 06/09/16

'Legend' is an average (at best) crime drama/biography upholstered by an energetic and hugely entertaining lead dual role from Tom Hardy. Multiple characters, or twins, are hard to pull of in a film. Hardy manages to make that feat look effortless with his portrayal of notoriously famous gangster twins, the Kray Brothers. Crazy violent outbursts punctuate a typical structure, making routine mundane scenes suddenly pop. I was never invested in the story, but I was consistently entertained by Hardy and the other performers. I especially felt for Browning's character who marries one of the brothers. Though, her narration during the film wasn't all too necessary. There's enough to like here, just don't be expecting a solid crime drama to go along with the memorable performance.
