Roy Hall turned the handle and the electric charge caused me to leap up out of my chair and fall to the floor. Then they stripped me, bound me, and gagged me, and applied electric shocks to various parts of my body.
Why didn't you go to the police?
Well, the police are all on Charlie's payroll.

I was not expecting much from this film after the reviews I have read. However, I was very surprised to find myself thoroughly enjoying this film.
It is a very English film with some fantastic dark humour. I particularly liked the part where he is to be conscripted into the British Army.
I am not concerned at all as to the historical correctness of the film as it is not claiming to be a documentary. Although, even if only 10% of the tales are vaguely correct then it gives you some idea what life was like for The Krays and Co.
The acting was 'real' and the choice of Luke Goss to play Charlie turned out to be a very good one in my opinion.
Give it a try - but don't watch it with your Granny!
