Rise of the Krays vs Legend

No contest.  Rise of the Krays  is titles-to-credits hamfisted overacting relieved by 115 minutes of unremitting tedium sprinkled with a few instances of gratuitous violence.  The two deleted scenes rise above the rest of the film by the breadth of a hair, so naturally they got trimmed.

That Legend  is a better film isn’t much of a recommendation.  I think The Town presented sociopathic behavior far more sympathetically without appearing to strive toward an oxymoron.
