This could have been so much better why on earth do they not hire a decent continuity director. It's so fractious and chops from scene to scene with little explanation. It's like they left a quarter of it on cutting floor what a pity
I must admit to having a liking for the Gangster genre, but having seen quite a few turkeys from the UK I very nearly avoided this one. I think the last real dog of a film was The Krays: Dead Man Walking (2018) which I rated a 1/10 and boy that dreck of a film wasn't even worth that. This one however starts off with an intro which gives you the impression this is going to be good, with old news reel images and the characters super imposed over them I was drawn in. But then the film starts and any high hopes suddenly vanish expectations are now a B- C+ However don't skip through it like I nearly did, This is a really good and well put together film. The menace of the Krays appear at the end, their time is just starting, but anyway I do recommend you watch it. I would rate it a B+ A- 7/10
This had such potential....good acting and a decent script. However this is a very disjointed and confused adaptation. Cinematography is bleak and lighting is depressing. The musical interludes were awkward and have no gravity. Watchable, but only just.
Watched it on the pretext of the initially high IMDB rating and was just amazed how really poor the production was. Majority of the time the scenes were dimly lit, the acting from all those concerned were a bit wooden and you could see that the supporting cast of extras were REALLY acting (they seemed embarrassed to be there...). The storyline appeared to be one punch up from start to finish, interspersed with people talking just before a punch up. An easy film to miss, do some decorating instead, the time will be better used.
I'm a big fan of the gangster genre and was excited when this film started production but! This film could of been a lot better the story is a great story to tell but the way it was made wasnt the greatest it jumps about and skips over Important parts and the dialogue was a bit kringy in parts, it's not the worst film but I was disappointed
