Bronson is a fantastic movie on every level and must be seen, the story is based on true events and is very interesting and converts to film perfectly with an amazing direction and cast, Tom hardy is amazing in this movie and its probably his major break through role into big Hollywood movies, this to date is probably his most awesome performance followed closely by Bane in dark knight rises. The movie is very dark twisted and extremely violent and really keeps you gripped the whole time plus there is a level of humour with him too which you will chuckle at, this is a scary true story about a very disturbed and violent man and is a gem of a film, there are some great making of features too, bargain at any cost.
First of all, absolutely amazing acting by Tom Hardy (who i was already a big fan of before seeing this.) It can be a little trippy sometimes, and more then a little bit messed up. But if you can stomach the violence, the imagery, and that grotesque scene in the asylum, you should definatley give this a little watch.
This is the type of film that leaves the audience disappointed with the unexpected way in which it portrays the life of Charles Bronson the renowned prisoner who has spent most of his life behind bars. If you are expecting a gritty biopic of Charles Bronson the man then you will be sorely disappointed. This is a surreal look at his life and gives you very little impression of the real person and prison life that he has experienced. There is no sense of the violence of the man and the characters are portrayed more as caricatures. You have the expectation at any moment that it will burst into song and turn into a musical extravaganza. If you enjoy the movies of Ken Russel then you will enjoy this. If not then steer well clear, it will not be what you expect from the title.
I absolutely love this film, Tom Hardy is incredible and he is gorgeous hehe! I definitely recommend this film! Tom plays Charles Bronson perfectly even the real Charles Bronson says he plays him perfectly, he sounds like him, looks like and acts like him! Tom hardy is the best actor in the world!!
