Critic Reviews of "Legend (2015)"Globe and MailDecember 04, 2015
Helgeland uses long-take shots through boisterous clubs, unreliable narration and splashes of violence to create a drama of little surprise and even less impact.ReelViewsDecember 03, 2015
Legend seems like a movie Scorsese might have made if he wasn't paying attention - the elements are present but they are clumsily assembled and the outcome underwhelms.Toronto SunDecember 03, 2015
It's not short of thrills, the biggest of which is Hardy's double performance.Toronto StarDecember 03, 2015
Watching Tom Hardy nearly upstage himself in the gangster biopic Legend makes for mesmerizing viewing. It's also an object lesson in how great acting can transcend a film's limitations.Boston GlobeNovember 25, 2015
The movie's a testament to the Krays' ability to get away with everything - for a while, anyway. But it's better evidence of Tom Hardy's ability to do just about anything.Detroit NewsNovember 25, 2015
Hardy's performance - nay, performances - are so electrifying they cut through the confusion. Watch "Legend" for him and him alone. He's great, times two.Sunday Times (UK)February 28, 2017
Tom Hardy does not so much act in films as wildly devour them, drawing every last ounce of energy and audience love his way. In Legend... he sucks an entire dressing-up box towards him as well.MovieFreak.comAugust 18, 2016
Legend really does waste the majority of its potential, Helgeland never tapping into the story of the Kray brothers in a way that is essential or lasting.rec.arts.movies.reviewsJuly 31, 2016
Tom Hardy shines in "Legend" -- twice, in fact -- but his satisfying dual performance is the *only* thing Brian Helgeland's film has going for it.Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
Legend is the best movie of the year if your idea of a great movie is watching one of our preeminent actors hamming it up for two hours and change in service of a lacking story.Antagony & EcstasyJuly 10, 2016
An alarming botch of a biopic on top of being an all-round cheesy gangster movie.The Straits Times (Singapore)May 25, 2016
This would almost be entirely all about surfaces if not for Hardy's portrayal of the brothers.
