In the 1960s, London’s underworld was regarded not as squeamish. But the wave of violence, which came from twin brothers Reginald and Ronald Kray (both Tom Hardy), shocked even for that time. Growing up in the 30s and 40s as amateur boxer brothers were sometimes even the worst. They again came to the fore.
In Legend, Tom Hardy plays identical twins: the gangster Reginald and Ronaly Kray, who flooded the streets with fear and terror in the 1950s.Yet both could dominate the East end of London in the 1966ern almost unmolested, because in their nightclubs, used contacts to the stars and influential politicians. Ronnie took over the management of their ‘company’ and was able to build a criminal empire through extortion, robbery and protection money demand.
