Review - The Rise of the Krays
Though this is too arty to officially qualify as a mockbuster, it’s clearly timed to cater to interest in the Kray brothers spawned by Legend. On the plus side, this production focuses more on the Krays’ crimes and less on their personal lives (specifically Reggie’s bad marriage and Ronnie’s homosexuality). Unfortunately, that doesn’t end up making it more interesting. I was going to scoff at the notion that this would produce the practically promised sequel, but then I note that the sequel’s already being released. Mildly amusing.
