yes, it’s stunt cast­ing: Tom Hardy as both Krays. But it works – Hardy’s per­for­mance makes it clear there’s a world of dif­fer­ence be­tween sleek busi­nessheaded Reg and the clearly crim­i­nally in­sane Ron. But who was re­ally the bad guy?

Ver­bal, vivid and vi­o­lent, it’s also funny. Imag­ine a sea­side post­card drawn by a psy­chopath.
