Turns out a Tom Hardy squared is a Tom Hardy divided. While Tom's not so much the problem with Legend - he (give or take the endless smirks of Taron Egerton) proffers the 2+ hour slog its few moments of grace and humor - it does seem that everybody was so caught up in capturing the spectacle of the doubled dude seamlessly that they forgot to get anything else in their house in order, leaving little things like plot, or cinematography, or music, or common-sense itself roaming the wilds. Here's a fun parlor game for you to play while watching the film - read aloud the IMDb list of the names who worked on this movie, legends themselves like Dick Pope and Carter Burwell, and try to astonish your viewing partners with the disconnect between their former work and what you're watching on the screen. It's alarming! You will gasp and marvel! And you'll momentarily be entertained, at least by something.
