Legend has style, a dream-like 60’s gangsterland London with technicolour vibrancy, but the story lacks one solid direction and as a result, suffers.
Legend provides two stories. One is about the Cray twins building a crime empire in London, using a blend of charm and utter psychopathy. And the second story follows the tragic romance between Reggie Cray’s and a young east end girl. This sends Legend in two directions at the same time and ironically mimics the polarity between the two twins in the film.
