I bought this on a bit of a whim! Not my usual type of film (not a big fan of violent films)! I made the exception as what I had seen in terms of clips of the film and that I like Tom Hardy, I thought what have I got to lose by watching it?
I found myself enjoying the film very much! Yes it was violent, but highly entertaining and quite funny! Tom Hardy played the part brilliantly and all credit to him for it... I highly recommend seeing this film even if you are not a fan! I'm glad I made the purchase.

Well a little over exagerated maybe, but what wonderfully connected, correographed and creatively put together cult film. Tip-top acting, stunning costumes and makeup done to perfection. What a tremendously exciting scene when Bronson turns his head to reveal a series of another character. Really so glad I am able to obtain this film. Terribly disappointing to those who think this film is all blood,gangsters and gore.

I found this film whilst channel hopping and just couldn't tear myself away from it. Tom Hardy is truly menacing as Michael Peterson, jailed for 7 years for a minor post office robbery but, owing to his penchant for violence and in particular, some shocking confrontations with prison authorities, he ends up spending over 30 years in jail in solitary confinement and indeed remains incarcerated today.

The film is narrated by Hardy as Bronson himself and somehow manages to add a light hearted note to an altogether far more sinister subject. In order for this to remain true to the facts and accurately portray the sinister, brutal and horrific lifestyle that Bronson has chosen for himself, this film is necessarily littered with some unbelievable violence, sufficient profanity to render it completely unsuitable for anyone who is sensitive to such things and yet, amid all this, Hardy is at his most menacing in the quiet moments. The deep staring looks, the groans and vocal creaks that he emits in moments of stress, the hunched seated stance with upper body muscles pumped to tension, the incredible flips from humour to complete horror and the silent tension that you sense is the precursor to almost nuclear explosions of violence against anyone within arms length. And yet amid all this it becomes apparent that he chooses this lifestyle, he revels in the confrontation and notoriety - he has found a place where he functions at his best.

This is my second Tom Hardy film. My first was Locke. I saw the poster outside the cinema . I did not know who Tom Hardy was - well I had lived out of the country for some years. So here was a close up of an ordinary looking man who I did not know with rows of yellow stars proclaiming the brilliance of the film as seen by the critics reviewing the film. I was stunned by the performance of one actor who did not move as he was driving a car down the motorway in the dark plus voices on the phone who held my attention for the length of the entire film. This was months ago, and then
here was Bronson in Sainsburys. Tom Hardy. Shaved head, large handlebars moustache and naked to the waist against a Union Jack background. Food for thought. So when I came home I ordered the DVD from Amazon. There is a long cast list in the credits at the end of the film, but watching it I was not conscious of any one else but Tom Hardy. His performance was mesmerising. Something I cannot say about any other actor I have ever seen on film. The character he plays here is extreme, bizarre, violent, repulsive. And complete. His acting is on a level not obtained by any other actor. He opens up new frontiers in performance and I am sure that talented writers will continue to write scripts for him that only he can play. What will be interesting for me now will to be to watch films in which he acts with other actors, as I have not seen any yet. But in this genre he is supreme.

This film wasn't scripted by Alan Bennett, but bits of it could have been. The main actor has some brilliant moments. It's a cabaret in parts, and I enjoyed the inventiveness and the manic humour and immense sense of angry paralysis. Bronson is a gifted man, but the world can't really deal with him, and he seems to be his own worst enemy inside. It's not easy to make a film about such a subject, and this one is rather special in its depiction of sad suburban England, and the narrowness of our prison system.

I enjoyed it, but it lost the plot a few times, and I didn't find the ending entirely satisfying.

When you mention the name Charles Bronson to most people around the world usually, the first person that will come to their minds is the actor of the movie Deathwish. To most British people, the name is synonymous with the most violent person held within Her Majesty's Prison system. Most movies like this, I will turn away from in an instant as when it comes to biopics and books alike, I generally like them to be about people of importance who have achieved something of worth. Bronson is a fascinating character to me as, although he obtained his country wide recognition through his violence actions, he has proven himself to be an articulate and artistic human being with his books and poetry. However, it's hard to ignore his violent past and that's certainly the primary focus of this movie. I was hoping for a bit more focus in the progression of his artistic side, but we were given merely a glimpse.

The story of the film gives a very brief look at Bronson's youth before prison, pointing out that even as a youngster he had a violent side. Fast forward a couple of years and he holds up a post office for mere change and lands himself a prison sentence of 7 years, for which he would have probably just served 4. Unfortunately, Bronson took to prison and found it an exciting surrounding and saw his fists as a way of gaining recognition, which he surely did. We then are given a brief look at his time in a mental health institute and also an even briefer glimpse at the Broadmoor protest. The film also shows a number of other events of Bronson's life, including his short release from prison and the hostage takings.

I'm really on both sides of the scale when it comes to my perception of this movie.
