When Nipper Read assembles his task force to go after the firm,in the background on the wall are mugshots of Jack 'The Hat' McVitie, Frank Mitchell, and George Cornell. At this point Jack was still alive, and thus his picture shouldn't have been up there alongside the other murder victims. See more »
The Krays, 1960's London, the implosion of Ronald, Reginald and company. So what could go wrong with such a platform to build and craft a wealth of scenes? It would appear much.
The Rise of the Krays (albeit lacking in substance) had the ability to keep the viewer (at least) wondering where the next scene might come from. Sadly, The Fall of the Krays comes with no such hook to grab the attention.
The acting is mediocre at best. In fact the only consistent character is Frances' Mum played by Clare McGlinn. There seems to be an ongoing and unnecessary need for the actors to try and portray the twins like like they were Phil and Grant Mitchel. Overreacting, overacting and not at all believable; the company they keep much the same.
If you're after a quick hit of good old-fashioned violence, mockney accents and loads of shouting after a few pints down the pub, this one's for you. If you want a little more then give Legend a go with Tom Hardy. It's more believable in half the time. If you want to watch a film about the Krays with the Mrs and you're a newby then give the Kemp boys a whirl.
Not the best.
