Legacy: Black Ops

A FILM BY Thomas Ikimi

Legacy captures the flavour of Jacob's Ladder and The Manchurian Candidate.
- Norm Schrager, Film Critic
Smart, creative filmmaking, fine acting and a taut, solid script... a well made psychological thriller.
- Tim McGonagle, NBC
the respectable professional debut from Thomas Ikimi. Writing, producing and directing, he ably shows that a tightly constructed story can swell beyond the confines of even the slightest budget.
- Paul Griffiths, Eye For Film


Idris Elba portrays Malcolm Gray, a decorated anti-terrorist black-ops soldier. When a military effort to assassinate a chemical weapons dealer ends in Gray's capture and torture, he later finds himself back in his Brooklyn apartment struggling to overcome the effects of severe paranoia and anxiety. While isolated, he reflects on the inconsistencies of the assignment gone wrong and begins to question the loyalty of his own brother, a senator on the verge of a presidential campaign.
