The film "Legend" — you have? Biopic about the twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray, a very well-known personalities in the London underworld of the 1960s? Or "the theatre of one actor" with Tom hardy in the main role? Both variant complement each other. To invite eminent English actor to play the film about the gangsters who were on the hearing all London — this is the first step to a successful project. Here only a small step has not become a huge leap, and in the picture there is problems.

A variety is not was a biopic, the fact remains. About the authority the cruelty of twin brothers Ronald and Reginald Kray were legendary. Brothers in period 50s — the 60's was holding in his hands a great part of organised criminal gangs in London. They for along with Jack the Ripper at the level of fame, it just went after him. Jack slaughtered prostitutes in the Whitechapel area. The krays from the East End of London controlled the gambling places of London, led the racketeering, arson, looting. But had a completely legal business — night club frequented well-known personalities (Frank Sinatra, for example).

Before Tom hardy had a difficult task — to play two quite contradictory characters. Ronnie is not recognize no income, except for bandit. Even more to say, he had a paranoid disorder and he could to hurt a person, the eye is not blinking. Reggie also tried to translate all of the legal sphere, and looked the background of his brother's quiet small. Hardy is perfectly able to play both brothers, the trouble is that Reggie received more attention than Ronnie. We tell long about his thoughts, torments and the story of love with his wife (remember this point, we it still overlaid notably). In that time, as show us quickly — Ronnie is a psycho, the brother to love, to kill everyone. Yeah and felt a real attachment to the character, when hardy is on the screen shows the lost or doubting man (that's me about Reggie). Tom hardy — alpha, all this said.

And now for Frances Kray, the wife of Reggie Kray. Between us speaking, Emily Browning it played well. With this character, on my opinion, connected the main jamb of the film. Understand the history of the formation Kray brothers, their acts up to under the terms of the guards in the film is given a 40 percent of screen time. According to the most part of the film is the love story between Reggie and Frances. And the whole story of the movie comes from the words of Francis. Yes, you can say that the film tells about how important to set values in life, because Francis was trying to protect Reggie from prison and Ronnie on the contrary, it lured. But I don't care about their mental anguish! Show me Tom hardy and Tom hardy sitting next in a chair, pay attention to their activities, tell us about with the kind of people they were short leg!

Yes, the "Legend" I do not fails, so in the excellent work of costume designers, design London and a good game of actors, in particular Tom hardy. Well and the rest of the picture resembles the planet Shelezyaka — no morals, no stories, no good story there, inhabited by love suffering.

For example, even if you feel the idea and start to empathize with the main characters — the brothers Cray, referring to that one — hopelessly sick, and other — turned out to be a hostage situation, then why the movie is called "Legend", and Director praises these people? All quite simply, they ended up as and had to finish...

Well let's leave the story and move to execution. The movie "Legend" — it's kind of a hybrid, even though borrowed the chips from other films: "Gangster N1", "Goodfellas" and"Casino" it plays the primary sources in entertainment to put it mildly, looks in the background of toothless. That hardy with his false teeth and spectacles strange, almost different from Tom hardy plays handsome former boxer. Early he took the execution of such complex roles where you must demonstrate duality and a variety of akarcay games. In this case, he is noticeably inferior to Antonio Banderas, Jean-Claude van Dammam the way the actors successfully performed multiple roles in a single film project.

In the work of screenwriter and Director Brian Helgeland has a good job, but  the"Legend" as in is any of what value and deserves to be forgotten immediately after viewing.

Reggie Kray (Tom hardy) — a calculating businessman, which is not afraid for the sake of money and status to break the law. Ron krey (Tom hardy) — a paranoid schizophrenic who dreams of glory. When Reggie falls in love with Frances (Emily Browning), he realizes that it is time to change something in life, but not can take the plunge. To plus he is not ready to leave the brother and Ron is not intend to become on the right path. The police, in turn, just waiting for a reason to send the twins crushed under all London, for bars.

As if descended from the cover luster Volume hardy elegantly pours himself a pint of Guiness. That hardy with rasparennye hair, all of blood, won't hammer someone that was lying on the floor. This happens simultaneously one shot — in the "Legend" Brian Helgeland British no effortlessly doing what many actors do not able career. There are artists who are so really unable to marry one image, and hardy casual takes on once the two characters — let the twins, but are completely different.

We all know that one hardy — good. Two, that logical — even better. In a bold experiment by the creators of "Legends" — power and highlight a whole is not too inventive film about becoming the fall of one of the most influential "firms" of London in the ' 60s. Their performing skills That not only sends the wayside the rest of the cast, but not pay attention to the shortcomings of the script. All energy and the power of the work rests on Helgeland incredible acting Duo that even more incredible is that fact that talking about one.

Sober and elegant Reggie, bloodthirsty and with difficulty restraining emotions of Ron — hardy have long established itself as a versatile actor because its transformation is not surprised. They are impressive, but a greater interest is how the Volume two characters interact, how their relationship becomes the main driving force of the film. Not less decisive influence on the vector of history should give Emily Browning, but on hardy made a serious bet that the rest of the cast on the background are not have Affairs, no matter how important, not should be role. It applies to repeat skilful David Tulisa and Christopher Eccleston, and provocative talent of Tarona Egerton. Director, it regret not managed to strike a balance, and this denies the "Legend" of a few balls — add it to charismatic protagonists a few deep and expressive characters, the film would have played new colors.

Certainly there are those who will criticize scenario solution Helgeland, in whose track record "Secrets of Los Angeles", "Payback", "a knight's tale" and"mystic river". — they say, he is capable of more. "Legend" — not a classic biopic, but rather a set of stories of the life of the brothers, episodes and situations that do not always develop well in the overall picture. Helgeland interested not so much narrative and life story of the Krays, as the characters themselves, and this brings me back to the Titanic work of hardy, perfectly depicting the emotional torments of Reggie and Ron. The film throws in the waves of the genre, but That feels like a fish water to melodramatic sketches, and Comedy situations, and when it goes to the brutal bloodshed.

Beautiful picture and appropriate soundtrack adds a "Legend" whist, however, will remember the film is still only the performance of one of the strongest actors of our time. Getting the project in a more skilful and ambitious hands, it was time talking about claims , but on successful solutions with the image of twins the case so not logged in. But the invitation, hardy became a hit in the Apple. However, it is time used — this guy always hit right on the target. At this time — twice.
