It did tempt me back to watching The Long Firm TV series where so much of the Kray story was added to the life of the fictional hero Harry Starks.
I do usually rate Tom Hardy as an actor but even he couldn't hold this movie together. As the Kemp brothers tried back in the 80's-the Krays were killers and trying to polish their lives for the camera will never work on me so i guess the fault is with me and i shouldn't of watched the movie.
So i rate it two stars
Tom Hardy deserves 2 Oscars for his portrayals of Ron and Reg as this film concentrates on the relationship between the Kray twins doing a whirly-twirly dance of spidery destruction in 1960s East London.
Superb supporting cast and great soundtrack.
Violence and humour in equal Shakesperean measure.
A real British classic.
The story of the Krays is well told. For a film about two of the most notorious criminals that ever lived, it is very funny at times. The script is excellent.
An extra bonus is the appearance of Chazz Palminteri [the Usual Suspects].
There are a couple of scenes that are not for the faint-hearted but overall it is a very enjoyable film
