This - and its sequel - were shot on a budget of $2.5 million. See more »
The portrayal of Jack Spot (real name Jack Comer) is incorrect-the real Jack Spot was a portly balding man of Jewish extraction-the characters appearance would been better suited to Billy Hill another major London underworld boss of the time. See more »

This is another attempt at the story of the Kray twins who terrorised London's East End starting in the early 1960s. UK resident will know of the Kray twins as they had quite a reputation. Their portrayal in this movie is laughable. They come across as misunderstood, well meaning brats which they certainly weren't. As far as pure entertainment goes the movie is a first class clanger. The story of the Krays has been done before and was a considerably better effort than this latest version. Obviously made on a tight budget and full of historical inaccuracies, it is dull and at most times, embarrassing and painful to watch. I humbly suggest that you do yourself a huge favour, steer clear of this dud and wait for the release of "Legend" with Tom Hardy which I imagine will be infinitely better.
