Stop Smiling

The movie's giddy brio can leave you punch-drunk, and oddly unsatisfied.

Deadspin

An overstylized mess, with a brave but pointless performance from Tom Hardy as a lifelong prisoner who just wants to destroy everything around him, most of all himself.

...an anthropological study in human viciousness, like a nature film done by Stanley Kubrick.

Bronson doesn't have much to say, but it's a very fun exercise in bad behavior that's neither glamorized nor bemoaned.

It's content to be a kind of freak-show character study of a man who embraces anarchy, not for its own sake but for the fame and adrenaline that it brings him.

This is psychotic behavior as performance art, and Hardy makes it irresistible.

Part literate black comedy, part surrealistic character study, part horror movie, Bronson is a sophisticated confection, rich and dark, sprinkled with bitter little jokes.

For such a potentially exciting subject matter, Bronson hits way too many lulls.

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

In the end, "Bronson" is a beautiful, intense film about a man that may or may not be insane, based on events that might actually have occurred in his life.

Director and co-writer Nicolas Winding Refn strives mightily to match his star crescendo for crescendo, which can be exhausting. But the film is nimble and spare enough to absorb most of the director's outré inspirations.

Itâ(TM)s a meditation on the art of rage -- an action painting passing itself off as an action movie.

Done differently, the cat-and-mouse brawling could get tiresome, but Tom Hardy as Bronson -- with his shaved head, handlebar moustache, and glittering eyes -- is mesmerizing.

If you want to spend two hours with a psychopath who loves nothing more than getting naked and brawling with prison guards, this is for you. I prefer vintage Kurosawa.

A figure this luridly fascinating, a personality this ludicrously outsized, warrants something more than your typical biopic.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

A stylized portrait of a criminal famous in his native Britain as perhaps the most violent man in Her Majesty's prison system, Bronson serves primarily as a showcase for Tom Hardy's undeniably brilliant performance.

Strap yourself in for a jaw-dropping performance from Tom Hardy as he completely inhabits the role of Britain's most notorious prisoner in this highly stylised piece of mischievous cinematic vaudeville.

...not a great film but garners a strong performance from its star [Tom Hardy].

Nicolas Winding Refn ("The Pusher" trilogy) takes an experimental approach to the biopic, letting his subject guide the way through his life so far as if it were a piece of performance art.
