Critic Reviews of "Bronson"Arizona RepublicJanuary 22, 2010
This is psychotic behavior as performance art, and Hardy makes it irresistible.Minneapolis Star TribuneJanuary 21, 2010
Part literate black comedy, part surrealistic character study, part horror movie, Bronson is a sophisticated confection, rich and dark, sprinkled with bitter little jokes.Boston GlobeNovember 24, 2009
Itâ(TM)s a meditation on the art of rage -- an action painting passing itself off as an action movie.Chicago TribuneNovember 05, 2009
"Nuffin' wonky about my upbringing," Bronson says, early on. Nothing wonky about Hardy's performance, either.Hollywood ReporterOctober 30, 2009
A pointless exercise in morbidity.Globe and MailOctober 30, 2009
Bronson is one of those "based on a true story" dramatizations where the theatrically staged drama only gets in the way of the more interesting truth.Radio TimesSeptember 03, 2015
Hardy does an admirable job of making this monster human, which he achieves with surprising wit and a visceral, attention-grabbing passion.Film Comment MagazineSeptember 26, 2014
...the film can barely contain Tom Hardy's performance. It's a Method turn so bloodily immersive it's hard to imagine the actor getting his head straight afterwards.Stop SmilingMarch 05, 2014
The movie's giddy brio can leave you punch-drunk, and oddly unsatisfied.DeadspinJune 22, 2013
An overstylized mess, with a brave but pointless performance from Tom Hardy as a lifelong prisoner who just wants to destroy everything around him, most of all himself.LarsenOnFilmSeptember 08, 2011
...an anthropological study in human viciousness, like a nature film done by Stanley Kubrick.Movies for the MassesDecember 17, 2010
