  • This drama tells the real-life story of the infamous British prisoner Charles Bronson (not to be confused with the American actor of the same name). Though Bronson was initially sentenced to seven years for burglary, his bad behavior--including attacking violently, taking hostages, and staging protests from the roof--has had him imprisoned for more than three decades, most of it in solitary confinement.
  • Credits
    Tom Hardy, Hugh Ross, Juliet Oldfield, Jonny Philips, James Lance, Amanda Burton, Matt King, Kelly Adams
  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "Bronson's closest cousin is Malcolm McDowell's Alex in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Like Kubrick's anti-hero, Bronson inspires equal reactions of fascination and revulsion."
    Total Film

    "Hardy gives an utterly convincing performance, and as a piece of filmmaking, BRONSON is undeniably well shot and well edited."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "Refn's visual strategy reinforces both physical claustrophobia and mental closure....Not since A CLOCKWORK ORANGE has the aura of brutality been accompanied by such shrewd musical selections..."
    Film Comment

    3 stars out of 5 -- "BRONSON is a stridently static film with an amazingly fluid performance at its center."
    Box Office

    "A fearless, indelible lead performance by Tom Hardy propels the wildly riveting BRONSON, the harsh true story of perhaps Britain's most notorious prisoner..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "For his movie BRONSON, director Nicolas Winding Refn turns Petersen's life story into a pensive, Kubrickian study of anti-social behavior." -- Grade: B+
    A.V. Club

    "[T]old with a CLOCKWORK ORANGE-in-the-cuckoo's-nest jauntiness."
    Entertainment Weekly

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Tom Hardy is pure dynamite in the role....This movie and Hardy's electrifying performance will knock you for a loop."
    Rolling Stone

    3 stars out of 4 -- "It is 92 minutes of rage....Hardy brings a raw physicality to the role..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's impossible not to be impressed by Hardy's charismatic take on a man we could spend a lifetime with and never fully understand."
