Tom Hardy has to be one of the most handsome — and talented — actors working in movies today. But he often tries to hide his good looks and disappear into unsavory characters.
His dual characters in “Legend,” the story of the gangster Kray twins of 1960s London, are as unsavory as any he’s played, especially Ronnie Kray, the psychopath who startles U.S. mafiosos with his casual admission of homosexuality. But while simultaneously playing Reggie Kray, the obviously reluctant Hardy shows us how stylish of a star he can be. And that alone makes “Legend” worth seeing.
