Thomas Eromose Ikimi edited the film and then Richard Graham was brought on to refine and re cut parts Thomas' edit. Richard Graham's input was invaluable as he somehow managed to shave off 15 minutes of the film but still maintain the integrity of Thomas' edit, which Richard respected. It ended up a good partnership. See more »
I like to believe I am a man who prefers the different type of story and something that's a bit engaging and new. Legacy definitely offers that.
It takes place in a hotel room where Malcolm Gray (Idris Elba) uncovers a scandal linked with his brother who is a senator. All the while having flashbacks of his time on the force with his comrades and what he went through.
It's intense, gripping and you are never bored. Elba is truly fantastic and shows his range beyond Stringer Bell. The whole cast is amazing and I keep wishing Eamonn Walker had more scenes!!!! The acting throughout was truly amazing and the writing was clever as well as the direction that really drew you in to this puzzle of a film.
I do think there are a few things that could have made it more claustrophobic and emphasized the lonesome nature of this story but nothing in the world can ever be perfect. The film does enough to make it a must-watch.
