These two films are B-movie retellings of the famous Kray story, released to cash in on the renewed popularity of the storyline following in the wake of the Tom Hardy film LEGEND. These B-movies are huge disappointments. The script is below par and offers some really embarrassing trite dialogue along the way. For my money, the Martin/Gary Kemp version of the story is still the definitive version to go for.

The story of Britain’s most notorious gangsters, twin brothers Reggie and Ronnie Kray, as you’ve never experienced it- told from the perspective of one of their closest friends. Starting out as amateur boxers, and ending up as infamously brutal criminal masterminds, the Krays were the terror of London throughout the 1960s. Experience the Krays’ precipitous rise and fall in this insider’s take on their bloody, violent reign. Absolutely-AnythingI ended up feeling disappointed with. It started off well but then the story just seemed to be everywhere and the film mainly just concentrated on Ronnie and not much about Reggie, it was not well balanced in showing them both I thought. I have to say I am slightly disappointed and hoped for more. It is not a bad film just nowhere near as good as thought it was going to be.
