Bronson Reviews:

As I was watching the first 30 mins of the bio flick "Bronson", I thought it had a death want or something. It does take a while to allow this film hit you. "Bronson" is based on the real storyline of who is named England's most notorious prisoner, that would be Michael Peterson better known by his alias Charlie Bronson. He has been incarcerated for 36 years, and 31 in solitary confinement. He never killed anyone, just was convicted of armed robbery a several times; but it was his feisty methods in the prisons and psych wards he did time in that got him all that time. Instead of trying to breakout, Bronson wanted to stay in prison but not exactly as a Solitary Man. He relished on physically brutalizing prison guards and another cellmates, not to mention taking a several as hostages. Bronson also had an artistic side that is also highlighted in Writer-Director's Nicolas Winding Refn movie. Refn's screenplay with Brock Norman Brock did escape the guidelines of viewer engagement from time to time with its extreme bizarreness, but somehow it boldly & bloody worked. Kudos goes to Refn for orchestrating those power-punching scenes where Charlie B. is refn so many up. Also, I gotta commend his direction of the comedic scenes of observing Charlie readapting to social civilization upon being released after his first "prison tour of duty". But "Bronson" would not be a brawny detail without the tour-de-performance of Tom Hardy. This Hardy Man sure did not lack a punch with his dead-ringer Bronson transformation. It will be difficult to knock out Hardy as a surefire grand actor for years to come. It is difficult to fathom that this is the same actor who played The Cleaner in "Inception", two exemplary performances but diverse in so many ways. "Bronson" is worth putting in the time for no better reason just to witness Tom Hardy's extraordinaire difficult work. So pass Go and matchup with "Bronson". ***** Perfect


Bronson is the dramatized storyline of Charlie Bronson. Not the actor from Death Wish, The Nice Escape, and The Dirty Dozen. This is the storyline of England's most violent prisoner. Born Michael Peterson, he quickly realized that he wanted to create a name for himself. It is unclear why he chose the path he did. He had a normal upbringing, a great home, nice parents, yet he just liked to fight. And he was nice at it.After robbing a post office for what can be only described as "chump change," he was given a seven year sentence. Since that sentencing in 1974, Bronson has seen a tiny over a several months as a gratis man. He is still in prison to this day.What Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn gives us is a stylized ver of one of the most bizarre and intoxicating stories I've seen in a long time. Bronson, played wonderfully by Tom Hardy, loves what he does. At least that what he wants us to believe. I was never really convinced that Bronson truly enjoyed what he did. Then again, I can't see the pleasure in pummeling prison guards, bare knuckle fighting, fighting dogs, and bringing others close to death. That said, it was something else to watch.Hardy gives a rock solid performance. He fits the part both physically and mentally. He has the right edge to allow us know how clever and hostile Charlie Bronson can be. It's difficult to imagine testing someone as energized and mentally perturbed as Bronson, who gets his jollies from beating up innocent prison guards and inmates, but Hardy does just that in style. He never falters and gives 100 percent in each scene.I can see a lot of similarities to A Clockwork Orange. It has related accents, violent images, an insight into the criminal mind. Things very much associated with Kubrick's masterpiece. Still, Bronson offers something different. It's more theatrical, blending both the true globe with a more dramatic and exaggerated story, showing Bronson as a prisoner, a performer, and storyteller.Bronson is filled with stunning, startling photos and a gives us a very original story, the likes of with we have seldom seen or will see. Charlie Bronson is a special situation of a boy that nobody will ever truly understand. Whether you like the glorification of criminals or not, it's difficult to deny that this movie and the folks involved doesn't offer nice entertainment. I expect more from Hardy and Refn.


Tom Hardy and Nicholas Winding Refn are the stars of the present here, taking the storyline of 'Britain's most violent prisoner' and twisting it into an explosion of style.Tom Hardy plays Michael Peterson who was initially incarcerated for 7 years after robbing a Post Office but this sentence turned into a 34 year stretch after numerous situations of violence in prison. Of these 34 years 30 were spent in solitary confinement. In his short period outside he assumed the fighting name of Charles Bronson after the Death Want star. It is his alter ego which dominates the film.Hardy is magnificent, prowling around folks almost growling, a hulking, brooding, unpredictable beast who almost doesn't care what happens to him, preferring gaol where his is someone to the outside where he is no-one.Many reviewers have been troubled by the lack of insight into the hero of Bronson, however this is unsurprising as the storyline itself is narrated by Bronson himself, cutting back to a fantasy audience where he parades in varying lvls of makeup, the star of his own show.Refn handles this material with aplomb, filling it with tracks and pans, the occasional slice of slow motion, an interesting and varied colour palate and impeccable taste in music. Kubrick and A Clockwork Orange have been mentioned in almost each review, but there are clear influences of Bertolucci, perhaps mostly The Conformist in its detached style and test of colour.By the time the movie ends we are unsure who to feel sorry for, lost in a globe of difficult lines and constant violence. A very interesting movie that marks out Hardy and Refn as exciting talents in modern cinema.
