UK, the 1960s: Crime kingpins Reggie (Marc Pickering) and Ronnie Kray (Nathanjohn Carter) decide to break out Frank "The Axman" Mitchell (Josh Myers) out of prison. The escape's pretty straightforward, and with their ties to politics and law enforcement, the Krays succeed in keeping Frank hidden very well - and that's where the problems start, as Frank's more than a bit of a loose cannon, and someone who doesn't like to stay in hiding, so much so that he even beats up his minder. So eventually, the boys hire prostitute Lisa (Rita Simons) to keep him in check, and she's a tough cookie for sure and knows how to handle Frank, even if that means him roughing her up and raping her. Thing is, soon enough even Reggie and Ronnie have to realize it hasn't been such a great idea to spring Frank in the first place ...

 

As far as contemporary gangster movies go, The Krays: Dead Man Walking is up there with the best of them, and basically because it's a great example of the art of storytelling, that goes beyond just an excellent script but really follows things up in its directorial effort that serves to bring things alive rather than be self-serving, that knows where to leave things out for maximum effect, and that welcomely stays away from any postmodern re-interpretations of the genre but keeps things straightforward in spite of the complex story. And that the ensemble cast is just top notch of course helps a lot as well.

In all, a really good movie that will make you fall in love with the gangster genre all over again.
