Rated: R for language and violence
Reviewed by: Frank and Chris  
Release date: November 9, 1990 Released by:

Born in 1931 in England to a weak father and a domineering mother, twin boys, Reggie and Ron Kray, grew up to become local hoodlums. The twins have an unusually close relationship with their mother, who dotes on them to the exclusion of their father and older brother. The Krays are manipulative, evil and violent and because this is a true story, it is all the more troublesome.

The violence seems more brutal, as they have a fondness for huge knives and swords. The film is a wonderful character study of the strange development of the twins, and the terrific acting makes the dark side of their personality all the more disturbing.
