If you followed the lives of Ronnie and Reggie Kray, you would know that Reggie's young bride killed herself in the 1960s at the age of 24. More than thirty years later, one of the twins died and a little later, the other died too(just more than a decade ago) so you would really wonder why Frances was narrating the story.
The first parts of the story were quite dragging for me, but apparently, not for the rest of the audience. They were snickering because of some of the things Reggie were uttering either sarcastically or sardonically. They found brutality funny.
Some of the undertones were probably humorous, but...
If I were to compare this to other biopics, even if it were not as gory as BLACK MASS, I would say I like Johnny Depp's movie more than this one, but for gangster movie aficionados, it is worth their time.
For all it is worth, acting wise, Tom Hardy NEVER disappoints.
The rest of the gang did well too.
