Trivia

The film was well into development when the producers learned of the existence of Legend (2015), a rival production starring Tom Hardy as both Ron and Reggie Kray. See more »

Goofs

When Ronnie is in the police station waving a cigarette lighter in the face of the police officer it is obviously a narrow, stable gas powered flame. Cigarette lighters at that time all contained a wad soaked in petrol with a wick, the flame was often wide and smoky. See more »

Awful to the end
4 September 2015 | by skinhead-5See all my reviews

This is an absolutely poor lose "remake" of the The Krays. Poorly filmed, awful scripting and a total mish-mash of babble. Not only that it would appear that whole budget was spent on fake blood that showed up quite a bit in the film. Indeed, it seems that the whole film just contained mindless violence for the sake of violence as it cheapish to produce on film.

Add to this the appalling locations and errors in sets e.g. "plastic double glazed windows" and modern cars it just make it more unbearable to watch. I seemed to of missed key points in their history due to sleep apnea! I really isn't worth the watch or the pain. At times in the film I wished they would of plucked my eyes out to save me the torture!
