Review: Bronson

By Gerald Aaron, March 12, 2009


Tom Hardy’s portrayal of Britain’s longest-serving (34 years) jailbird “Charles Bronson” (born Michael Peterson) is extraordinarily visceral, foul-mouthed and terrifyingly maniacal. If you really, really have to see this over-directed (by Nicolas Winding Refn), pretentious and far too sycophantic “tribute” to Bronson/Petersen, wait for its appearance on television.
