"Legend" is not at all a bad movie. It is entertaining, it has a simple gangster plot and a great soundtrack. What is actually extraordinary about this movie is Tom Hardy. Unlike previously seen portrayals of twins in the movies, Tom Hardy does an excellent job, as you can clearly understand which twin is which. The film tells a hard story about a person, who does not try to live either the criminal or normal life, but rather about the person who wants to combine both of them into one, consequences of which are shown in the movie. As to his brother, everything is more simple -- he just tries to get some respect.
I would also point out action scenes in the movie as they looked really good, as well as the small, yet great role of Taron Egerton, who plays very well. It should be a movie for people who like gangster genre or "based on true events" kind of movies, but most of all, it will be taken in greatly by a person, who genuinely wants to have a fun time while watching a film. Definitely worth watching, although it is a one timer.
Tom and Emily are two great actors who are always a pleasure to watch. An enjoyable film well directed and produced.
This movie is about Tom Hardy if he was in the Parent Trap like Lindsey Lohan, but instead both Tom Hardys are murderers. In the movie they never explain why Frances is with Tom Hardy and then he rapes her and she kills herself at her brothers apartment. The whole movie you will just be thinking, these dudes should just be in jail!! It's also like five hours long. Half a star for each Tom Hardy, and another half a star for when Frances's mom spits on his car and wears black to her wedding. Good on her!!
Legend is a brilliant movie. The movie's got a very good plot, it's about these two identical twins who are called Reggie and Ronnie they're both played by (Tom Hardy).
They both pretty much go through higher ranks of the criminal underworld, the reason being is so they'll both turn into London's scariest gangsters.
Also, the acting from all the cast is actually brilliant, especially from Tom Hardy, Teddy (Taron Egerton) and Nipper Read (Christopher Eccleston) those three were honestly amazing.
The movie's got some really strong dialogue from the main characters throughout this movie and it works very well.
The action sequences throughout this movie are very graphic, gory and very clever and they're all honestly well done.
Finally, the soundtrack which this movie's got is honestly amazing, it's got lots of brilliant songs from such artists as Martin Gaye, The Who, Booker T. & The M. G.'s and many more.
Overall, Legend is honestly a brilliant movie. The movie's got a very good plot, brilliant acting, strong dialogue, some very graphic action sequences and an amazing soundtrack.
Based on the true story of the gangsters the Kray brothers the film should have been a perfect showcase for hunky Tom Hardys creative range and talent. Instead it's a half realized piece of Hollywood entertainment that never goes deep enough to be anything spectacular. Tracing the events of the rise of their criminal empire it also shows the abuse one of their wives endures. Props to the makers for keeping the gay element intact but for the most part it's kept off screen. Still for gangster movie fans especially it's a fun, engaging flick that's sadly forgettable. And as for Hardy, he's great but there's not such a huge difference between the characters that it's as impressive as it could have been.
Box Office: $43M
I think this movie fails at being a good biopic, plots are moved around too fast and the sense of time is lost within the first thirty minutes. However Tom Hardy's performance is extremely strong, possibly one of his strongest yet (though not quite at the Mad Max level). Just for that, I'd recommend giving it a watch (but only once).
Stunning film. Very good job from Tom Hardy playing 2 roles. Very well done to all the team
Excelente actuacion de Tom Hardy, la historia mmm no tan excelente como el
It´s a little boring, Tom Hardy is a great actor but the script does not help him.
I really liked this film...Tom Hardy plays both roles brilliantly...Captures the 60s london gangster vibe very well....definitely worth watching
