Bronson follows the life of notorious prisoner Michael Gordon Peterson, who was re-named Charles Bronson by his fight promoter. Born into a respectable middle-class family, Peterson would nevertheless become one of the UK's most dangerous criminals, and is known for having spent almost his entire adult life in solitary confinement. Tom Hardy plays a scary and messed up person in this movie and the directing is superb in this movie with out a doubt. Nicolas Winding Refn always has he's characters a silent but deadly person in all of his films.

People need to check this out just to watch Tom Hardy's performance as Bronson. Refn almost had me hypnotized watching this movie.

Bronson is truly a biopic like no other. A man who seemingly lives and breathes violence but the movie does not celebrate this violence, instead presenting a warped individual played superbly by Tom Hardy. It's hard to connect with a character who spends most of the film getting beat or beating things. Unique, but hard to like.

An artful and exploitive piece about an infamous man I had never heard of. Hardy is supremely entertaining to watch and the narrative structure provides consistent black comedy. The strangest biopic I've ever seen.

Amazing performance from Tom Hardy

Amazing yet funny performance from Tom Hardy that shouldve been nominated for something in 08 relase however thanks to The Dark Knight Rises i'm introducing myself to the rest of Tom Hardy's earlier flicks and aside from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy which was a snoozer i am enjoying the ride! Hardy seemed to slip under my radar when it comes to new actors (new to me anyways) However now that we have been aquainted i'm a fan of his for life! In Bronson Hardy portrays 'Britains most dangerous criminal' (True story btw) After being sent from one prison to another for being disruptive and downright nasty (Although Bronson claims in this that he "Love fu**ing prison i do") Michael Peterson (Tom Hardy) who has barely any hair on his body except for a bushy 70's mustache has been calling himself Ch...
