3 out of 10 Interesting
dave from Meath, 09 Sep 2009
Maybe not the most entertaining of films for a Saturday night, but a very well made and brilliantly acted story. The main character Michael Gordon Peterson, aka Charles Bronson, is unbelievably stupid in many ways but a die hard crusader in what he believes in, becoming the most notorious prisoner in UK history. Worth a watch.

1 out of 10 Bronson
Michael from Kildare, 12 Aug 2009
Bronson is a poor film that had me asking the question why make a movie about this real life guy, It explains nothing&Trys to entertain through silly moments of violence. Watch the film Chopper starring Eric Bana a masterpiece compared to this. Im giving Bronson two stars because of actor portraying Bronson does a great job.

0.5 out of 10 A opportunity wasted
Gary from Louth, 01 Sep 2009
Looking at the history of a Mr Charles Bronson makes for interesting reading. 34 years in prison, 30 of those in solitary confinement. So why is this film so awful? The writing and direction are amateurish and the story never goes anywhere. Avoid watching this movie at all costs.

4 out of 10 Bronson
Alan from Cork, 15 Aug 2009
Good. Entertaining watch. Worth watching for main performance alone. While central character is replusive, non-redeemable criminal, actor's protrayal of him is mezmorising. Good film, well directed, excellently performed, 1st class soundtrack. Recommended.

0.5 out of 10 Dreadful
Nigel from Westmeath, 11 Jan 2011
Badly made, poor acting, no story to speak off, I ended up fast forwarding throught a lot of it, then chapter skipping then I just ejected it. Nothing of note happens - Yes there's a lot of violence but gives absolutely no insight into the man.
