“London in the 60s, everyone had a story about the Krays,” proclaims the attention-grabbing the opening line of the film. This appears to have been the case as the fact that the rich and famous of the era regularly rubbed shoulders with the crimelord Kray twins made them cult figures whose iconic status still lives on today.
Fast forward to 2015 and after a number of books, documentaries and the 1990 film The Krays, as director Brian Hegelend (writer of L.A. Confidential and director of A Knights Tale) brings Legend into cinemas to recount the legacy of Reggie and Ronnie Kray. … More Legend Review
