Loyalty trumps all; even when Reggie and Ronnie's unswerving dedication to each other is clearly a handicap, they refuse to sell each other out. Though it's not necessarily wise, it's admirable.
The Kray twins rule London's East End through intimidation and violence and are only too willing to dispense brutal beatings to show someone who's in charge. Many fist fights -- sometimes involving brass knuckles, hammers, and other battering implements -- that leave people on the floor, bloody and maimed or worse. A few conflicts also involve guns and knives, which result in even more bloodshed (sometimes quite gory, especially one graphic stabbing) and death. A character is hung upside down and tortured (including via electrodes). In one scene, a man beats up his wife, leaving her bruised; further assault (rape) is implied. Suicide.
A few passionate kisses. Some sex talk; racy scenes shown on TV in background.
Plenty of profanity, mainly "f--k," which is used liberally in almost every scene. Other words include "c--t," "bastard," "bitch," "s--t," and plenty of British slang. Some homophobic terms.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Lots of smoking (cigarettes/cigars). Many scenes take place at pubs, nightclubs, and parties and feature plenty of drinking, sometimes to excess. A character who takes prescription pills overdoses.
