I have always been interested in the Krays. I have read most of the books about them and I also enjoyed the 1990 film with the Kemp brothers, which was flawed and left a great deal of things out, but became a cult film. The Rise Of The Krays, however, makes the Kemp film look like a masterpiece in comparison. I only watched it for half an hour and I thought it was absolute rubbish. It featured violence just for the sake of it, no coherent plot, was obviously made on a shoestring and featured no actors that I had actually heard of before. To make matters even worse, the two actors playing the Krays didn’t look like them at all! The comment on the cover of the DVD states that this is, apparently, “The Best British Gangster Film Ever”, which is complete rubbish. This is, without doubt, the worst film I have seen for a long time and anyone who knows anything about the Krays’ story would soon spot glaring mistakes. It is a blatant rip-off of the 1990 film and an obvious cash-in on the new Legend film starring Tom Hardy as the twins. He looks more like the Krays than the two jokers in this film. Honestly, just don’t waste your time or money on this rubbish. If you want to know more about the Krays, then I suggest you read one of the books about them, which are infinitely more accurate and tell a fuller picture than this film. You will thank me for it, trust me. Even the 1990 film is better than this.
In my honest opinion, excellent!
Well I would like to personally rate this an 8 out of 10 stars.
I have seen gangster movies such as Goodfellas, Donnie Brasco, Infernal Affairs, and a few others and I have to say that this one is high up on my re-watch list. What made it so special? Very rarely will you see a gangster film where it is based on realism of torture and beating up the victim. This is what real crimewaves have done in the past, and still do today, but back in the 50’s there was more violence in dark rooms than there were threats through online and smartphone ransoms like today, threatening victims of mafia groups.
So with this said, enjoy this movie if you like violent films such as Quentin Tarantino-based movies. If you’re more of a drama or action person, I recommend another film.
