Gangster Playboy Legends


An 18 year old girl going into a coma after taking an ecstasy pill from a bad batch is the catalyst that sets in motion a series of events that leads to the demise of one of the most infamous criminal organisations in British History. Detective Inspector Stone steps in to try and put pressure on an untouchable unit of criminals - Pat Tate, Tony Tucker and Craig Rolfe. The Essex Boys. In order to bring the criminals down, he must act out of the law to get things done. As the Essex Boys grow stronger and more fearless, their addiction to drugs and power slowly starts to spiral out of control and they soon start to develop enemies everywhere. As Stone starts to see the cracks forming in their organisation and with pressure from his peers he soon realises that bringing them down will be inevitable but the real test will come when he must find a way of getting his man on the inside out safely.


  • a gripping and entertaining piece of cinema.
  • Its fresh take on an old Brit tale is surprisingly enjoyable and the problems don't stop it from being an impressive watch. One of the better Brit gangster flicks to come out since Guy Ritchie dominated the genre and that's not an exaggeration.
  • Tanter's film does well to create an authentic sense of the dingy and lurid environs that this rabble inhabits.
  • certainly a good watch.
  • Tanter has found another theory intriguing enough to rouse interest and provide an appealing watch
  • Don't miss it, there's some truly classic moments contained within the film!
  • off-the-peg gangster fun.
  • it definitely has a dark edge that other similar films lack. Tanter isn't afraid to hold a mirror to up to the brutality of violent crime rather than glorifying it.
  • There is no doubt that this is very much a film that is male orientated. The language is strong, the women are naked and the violence is heavy and brutal.
