DVD Review: Bronson

Posted in DVDs, Film, Reviews
By Sam Bathe on 6 Jul 2009

Made on an incredibly low budget, Bronson proves confident direction and an intelligent, driven screenplay can make a great film, without the Hollywood cost. Retelling the life of notorious British prisoner Michael Peterson, or Charles Bronson as he is more commonly known, and his havoc-wreaking actions that saw him transferred to increasingly high security prisons.

Tom Hardy is brilliant as Bronson, the faux persona Peterson created for himself, with Hardy carefully portraying the role in such a way as to give complete realism without glamorising the violence.
