For the uninitiated, “Bronson” is the based-on-a-true-story tale of Charles Bronson, a UK criminal who has been dubbed “the most violent prisoner in Britain.” He first went to prison in 1974 on a seven year term, though that stay has been continually extended for his dangerously erratic behavior behind bars. Many of his more than 30 years of incarceration have been spent in solitary confinement, though not in one place: Bronson has done time in more than 120 government rehabilitation facilities. And there’s a movie about this nutball.
A movie with a shiny, new trailer for all to enjoy. It’s rather light on the violence, though it is heavy on the suggestion of violence. I’ve heard wonderful things about this film, though I have also heard that it is a very difficult watch with all of Bronson’s –played by Tom Hardy, who most memorably played the villain in “Star Trek: Nemesis” — violent antics. Peep the new trailer right here:
