Bronson- May 23rd

Bronson (2008)
English- Biopic
Rated “R”
Runtime- 92 min.
dir. Nicolas Winding Refn
 

After initially being a bit put off by the cover, I jumped into this movie headfirst.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

The life story of Michael Gordon Peterson, better known as Charles Bronson, Britain’s most dangerous prisoner.

Acting: 2/2

Tom Hardy narrates as Bronson throughout the film, bringing the audience along on the journey into the mind of the famous criminal.  The addition of a good ensemble really drives home the believability.

Photography/Set: 2/2

Really neat sets that are complimented by good shooting technique.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Interesting musical choices for the soundtrack.  The effects are a little off-the-wall at times, which may turn off some viewers.

Misc: 1.5/2

Really good.

VERDICT: 8.5/10

Really good if your into crime dramas and biographical films.
