LEGEND steals the limelight with Crime Wave Season

Legend - Crimewave Season Banner

From Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th of April, at 9pm, LEGEND presents a CRIME WAVE SEASON, where cops and criminals collide in a collection of robberies, heists and getaways movies, highlighted by the Channel premieres of Steven Seagal’s crime-busting  HALF PAST DEAD,  and heist action thriller ARMORED, starring Matt Dillon and Laurence Fishburne.

Then we have a double dastardly dose of Bruce Willis in two crooked thrillers  – as a wronged crime boss in PRECIOUS CARGO, and a corrupt bank owner in MARAUDERS. Plus, there’s  Walter Hill’s classic getaway thriller THE DRIVER, starring Ryan O’Neil and Brit old-school burglary caper THE HATTON GARDEN JOB, with Joely Richardson and Larry Lamb.
