Hardy's performance shows off his range as an actor and is a perfect image of his acting chops. Beyond Hardy, [it] is a flawed gangster film with shifts in tone and [a familiar] plot.

Legend is chaotic, fast-paced and visually impressive, with [Tom] Hardy delivering his best performance to date.

Flashy production and performances don't distract from the film's flaws, though the American Helgeland nails the minutiae of British life.

This is a brisk stroll through London's crime syndicate with a dual Tom Hardy performance that's worth the steep price of admission.

As a double vehicle for a fantastic actor, it is worth watching.

A well polished, but plodding biopic, driven by strong character performances and a well-chosen cast.

Hardy's double performance is a joy to behold, but the film maybe doesn't quite have the conviction to make it as legendary as some would've hoped.

Legend is indecently entertaining, but as an East End western it doesn't have a thought in its head other than to forgive the Krays for all their sins.

Legend has all the elements of a period gangster film in place, along with dollops of additional dash and verve.

[Tom] Hardy doesn't just act. He doesn't just become a screen character. He embodies the real-life personalities he is attempting to portray and ends up achieving something that warrants such adjectives as dynamic and fearless and even unforgettable.

Director Brian Helgeland lays everything on with a trowel, but subtlety isn't why we're here. The flash, the violence, and Tom Hardy's twin performances make Legend a fun ride.

Tom Hardy does not so much act in films as wildly devour them, drawing every last ounce of energy and audience love his way. In Legend... he sucks an entire dressing-up box towards him as well.

Legend is the best movie of the year if your idea of a great movie is watching one of our preeminent actors hamming it up for two hours and change in service of a lacking story.

This would almost be entirely all about surfaces if not for Hardy's portrayal of the brothers.
Apr 5, 2016
Luckily, Hardy is there to pick up the pieces... this is possibly Hardy's most ambitious role to date and the Brit is magnificently enticing as both Reggie and Ronnie Kray.

Legend is entertaining, has good rhythm and makes good use of period music. The problem is that it could have been so much more, considering the material it was based on. [Full Review in Spanish]
