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

Not a bad film, but not great. No real explanation of why Charles Bronson was so violent, the film seemed to glorify his violence, with no explanation of why. Read morePublished 3 days ago by adrian hudson-walsh
