So once again we have another based on real people movie. And once again, I wish this was a documentary instead. At least it’s not as bad as the Black Mess, but still pretty uneventful.
The only draw to this film really is Tom Hardy and him playing the two twins. Both roles were great though Ronnie was much more entertaining to watch despite him not having as much screen-time as Reggie. Reggie is pretty atypical gangster who’s the one in charge whereas Ronnie is the loose cannon. I wish they dwell on their relationship on a deeper level. I mean the movie IS about the two of them but it still fell pretty flat despite the fact.
Emily Browning is pretty bland here and brings nothing to the table. With that said, everyone else in the movie is also like that. We have Taron Egerton from the Kingsman here and I only remember him because he was in that movie; he was pretty forgettable here and I can actually say that for the entire cast excluding Tom and Emily.
It just boggles the mind how they could have made the world that this movie takes place in so bland and average. Every time they mention London or gang activities, I seriously do not know what they were talking about. I mean they hardly ever show it. I think the gang stuff was them being an enforcer but I’m just making a blind guess here and this movie is suppose to be about gangs? Like everything feels empty with no depth whatsoever.
So yes, this movie is average if you watch it for Tom Hardy’s performance. And sadly, it’s not him on the screen-time the entire movie. So you got to bear with it all.
