Movie Review: LEGEND
STAR RATING (out of 5): **
LEGEND is another journey into the super stylish gangster tone, following the twin Kray brothers as they gangster-ize 1960s London. Unfortunately, in this case everyone might as well have stayed home.
Tom Hardy as both the Kray Kray brothers (see what I did there?). Hardy’s ability to play two very different personalities successfully is impressive. Also, a lot of the dialogue flows well and the 60s London look is pretty cool.
For a film called “Legend”, this should have been way more legendary. But far from it. The movie drags badly, making its 130 minute runtime seem more like three hours. The plot structure seems unorganized and hard to follow. The supporting cast is underdeveloped and non-effective.
