Aesthetic Appeal- ๐Ÿ™‚ Nicolas Winding Refn directed a gritty masterpiece. His use of still photos and paper clippings was as unique as it was brilliant. The use of camera angles and selective focus combined with a unique editing style makes audiences cling to the edge of their seats.


Story- ๐Ÿ™‚ A young man who was sentenced to 7 years in prison for robbing a post office ends up spending 30 years in solitary confinement. During this time, his alter ego, Charles Bronson, supplants his own personality. This movie is called an classified in action/biography/crime but the comedic elements of this movie are hard to ignore. All in all Charles Bronson/Michael Peterson was a more then interesting guy and you should enjoy the story.


Acting- ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Tom Hardy is masterful in his first leading role, he gives as convincing a performance as I have ever seem and is hopefully representative of a new wave of action heroes that can actually act.
