    Synopsis


    Bronson
    The notorious life of the U.K.'s "most violent prisoner" serves as the subject of Pusher Trilogy director Nicolas Winding Refn's brutal biopic. Born Michael Peterson but later renamed by his fight promoter, Charles Bronson's sole ambition in life was to become famous. Surmising that the fastest means of accomplishing his goal with such limited opportunities was to cultivate a stylized persona as a hardened criminal, the ambitious do-badder embraced a desperate existence of extreme savagery. But who is the real man behind the warped persona? Seeing as how 28 of Bronson's 34 years behind bars were spent in solitary confinement, that's a difficult question to answer. The terror of the legend comes to vivid life, however, as director Refn explores the twisted alternate reality created by Bronson, and highlights precisely how the controversial criminal staged himself within that anarchistic world. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I teach CRIMINAL JUSTICE, so this one is a must and recommended for my students. Tom Hardy is amazing -- as usual -- and it's amazing what actors will do with their bodies to prepare for a certain role in a certain film. ... this one "based on a true story."

      This movie was more like a theatrical stage play. There was no subsitive plot. I usually enjoy tom hardy movies, his ability to portray a twofold character with such believabilty is masterful but his character was very disturbing to me.

      I am a fan of Tom Hardy and movie roles like this he is good at, but it shows why this was a small production movie versus a big screen release, not as good as I thought it would be.

      This was a great watch. It's definitely not for everyone. But, if you're a fan of Tom Hardy, and his deep catalogue of off-beat film and television roles, this just might be up your alley.

      This is by far my most favorite movie. There isn't much gore, not too much nudity... Not that I'd mind more if either ;) full frontal nudity on Tom wasn't bad either. Especially if you're looking to see his butt as well. Great movie!!!

      Tom Hardy is remarkable in this film. The film is not too long which is what I like these days, too many 3 hour films. This movie is great primarily for one reason, the acting.
