At the onset, let’s get it out there immediately that this is an epic story with some pretty major affairs to resolve, all of which are mafia and family related. The Fall of the Krays is the second film which charts the Kray brothers rise and fall within a 1950’s and 1960’s English backdrop.
As I hadn’t seen the first one (The Rise of the Krays) I worried that I might lose some of the storyline. For me, this type of movie isn’t the sort of thing I would rush to see at the cinema. But I had heard about a few of the actors and was keen to see their performances on the big screen. Luckily seeing it without having watched its prequel didn’t detract from the film, and the performances certainly didn’t disappoint.
