    This film is really good.



    A flipside to The Krays[1990], it tells the story of Charlie Richardson and his brother, Eddie. The main focus is on the "Torture Trial", where the Richardson Firm were described as more dangerous and deadly then the Krays. The film also showed that while the Krays were more known, the Richardsons were making far much more money: Charlie getting involved in mining in South Africa. The scenes in South Africa are beautifully shot and Nicole Sherwin, who plays Charlies "lover", Jean La Grange adds a more pure and untouched atmosphere to the foreign setting.



    The film is well worth seeing, but not just for the violence, but also for the story of what should have been Londons most recognised Firm.

    Isn't this the film with Luke Goss? I've seen it if it is. Liked it better than The Krays. The Krays wasn't that good a film for me because I don't really rate the Kemp's as actors.

    'Charlie' made no impact on me really. 'The Krays' is one of my favourites, though.

    The Krays was better then Charlie everyone says, but in real life, the Richardsons were far more advanced then the Krays.
