How Fans Reacted to Movies?
The movie received widespread love and recognition from the movie. One person says, “In terms of the gangster genre, Legend has all the ingredients. Hardy was superb especially given the technical challenge of playing two people and effectively interacting with himself so convincingly. Credit to the filmmakers in that regard too. The film captures the atmosphere of 1960s London without being cliched and I liked the choice to include a scene with PM Harold Wilson. Emily Browning was good as the troubled young bride Frances Kray. The violence is, not surprisingly, brutal – but not excessive enough to be a gore fest. Whilst 1989’s lower budget ‘The Krays’ with the Kemp Brothers is worth watching, some of the details in Legend were more accurate (ie Jack the Hat McVitie was not an old man as depicted in the 89 films but in his 30s like the twins)”
While another says, “One concern I have with Legend is it risks turning the Kray Twins into folk heroes. They were not. They were ultimately just high-profile criminals and should be remembered as such. Certainly not ‘legends’ in an admirable sense. Hardy is a fine actor but some young men think such character(s) should be emulated. I know the director and cast have refuted this claim and there is a scene implying Reggie raping his young wife so to that extent the twins weren’t exactly ‘glorified’ (Frances also narrates so we are getting another perspective – as if from her spirit) but the dark humor scenes humor me feel we as viewers as expected to sympathize or resonate with them. To be fair though, they might also balance out the gritty subject matter. I think a biopic should be about Nipper Reed, the officer who brought them down.”
