Locke (2013)

Tom Hardy’s best-known performances have tended to project the image of him as the badass movie star most likely to headbutt someone. With his performance as Bane and Bronson, he created an image that people somehow see him as the badass criminal character as he plays in his movies. It’s nothing wrong with exaggerating as he is famous for his hardcore badass character in his movies. Hardy’s roles don’t often give him the chance to work in a minor key, but here he shows a mastery of small, telling gestures and innocent man.


This movie changed a lot and it’s the first time we have hardy, not in gangster of criminal character and we loved it. The movie main lead character Ivan Locke, a dedicated family man receives a phone call as his one-night stand is pregnant. This threatens his carefully cultivated existence. The wonderful movie is like a therapy session in itself.

Legend (2015)

Rather than casting real-life twins, Brain Helgeland cast Tom Hardy who is playing both brothers. This movie takes the viewers back to the 1960s  in a gangster era. Legend portrays the life of the gangster twins  Reggie and Ronnie Kray. Reggie is slick and confident, while Ronnie, a paranoid schizophrenic with strong sadistic tendencies. In this film, Tom Hardy is chilling. Hardy’s approach to each brother is so distinct that it feels like two actors playing the roles. Despite Tom Hardy’s great performance, the movie is not good. It lacks basic writing and directing.

Inception (2010)

Christopher Nolan’s dream heist movie one of the year’s most talked-about movies. Inception is a deliberately disorienting maze of interlocking time frames, not critics understood it first. Nolan presented us to not find what happened but events that may not have happened. Set in the world of dreams, and dreams within dreams this movie is the masterpiece. This movie is known as a dream heist as a group of Thieves infiltrate the mind and steal or change your dreams. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom hardy performance are the best. Every time we think we reached the center of dream  Nolan puts the world hiding within. This is a type of movie that every person should watch and watch again to fully understand it.

Venom (2018)

The Venom movie based on the popular Spider-Man spinoff character as we have seen in comics and spider man 3.Directed by Ruben Fleischer finally placed the most notorious villain of Marvel Venom. Venom is about a super shady science corporation that’s harvesting symbiotes from Space. One of the symbiotes finds its way to  Eddie Brock, a journalist. This symbiotic alien gives him superhuman abilities And Eddie Brock becomes the antihero venom. To be fair, the movie is not good. We were hoping of great action sequences but  Ruben Fleischer couldn’t provide that when he has sony studio behind your project.

The only thing good about the movie is tom hardy performance. The arguments between alien symbiote and Eddie Brock are only good things in the movie. Eddie Brock tries to be a normal person while this voice inside his head screaming to eat people. This is very entertaining to see Tom Hardy calm him down and to believe that he is not crazy. If this hasn’t been in the movie it should be a disaster.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Christopher Nolan’s another masterpiece with Tom hardy. It was the final chapter of a Batman trilogy that grossed over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Tom Hardy has been delivering incredible performances over the last 15 years. His roles have included being part of Daniel Craig’s  Layer Cake, both of the gangster twins in Legend, portraying Charles Bronson, and a pilot in Dunkirk. The most defining role may be Bane in The Dark Knight Rises and the audience loved him. To play Bane, a willfully evil and possibly unstoppable force of mind and might Tom Hardy has to work really hard for it. Hardy’s incarnation of Bane to have brawn and be a physical threat to the Caped Crusader ‘Batman’.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

The audience is never at rest and always wanting more and this time George Miller delivered it after 30 years of the gap he presented us with another max movie. This movie keeps our eyes wide open with amazing cinematography and a thrill ride to best action sequences. Its just not the action scenes that are worth mentioning it also has a surprising amount of feeling to it. The story of the film is about a woman searching for homeland and rebels against a tyrannical ruler in a post-apocalyptic situation. Tom Hardy is excellent as Max did a great job. The Hand on Hand combat scenes along with beautiful shots of chaos and destruction leaves you drooling. Mad Max is one of the best action-thriller films of this decade.

Bronson (2008)

Hardy’s most electrifying performance in Bronson made the audience love him more. The film is about Michael Peterson, aka Charles Bronson, one of the dangerous prisoners of the United Kingdom. Hardy brings a raw physicality to the role, hurtling himself into half a dozen guards, slamming tables, heedless of pain or harm to himself. It must have really hurt him and that’s the specialty of hardy he just five onto the role even if getting himself hurt.

Hardy is a versatile actor and he performed the role of criminal perfectly well. With a shaved head and a mustache, he is violent. He takes his time with his hostage and likes to strip naked and grease himself before going into action.

This Movie tells us that Tom Hardy is one of the dedicated actors in the movie industry. The movie is twisted and disturbing. Based on the unbelievable true story of a psychopath criminal who was sentenced to seven years in prison ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement.

The Revenent (2015)

Director Alejandro González Iñárritu film contains a thunderous performance from Hardy. Hardy plays a savagely self-serving sociopath that left his partner when attacked by a bear. Hardy has the ability to communicate effectively through body language. After watching this film carefully the very word’ intense and ruthless’ for the character. John Fitzgerald is a shrewd man and his actions are unsympathetic. But his performance indicated savagely self-serving sociopath and that quite fun to watch.

This Movie is filled with intense scenes and it looked real especially the bear attack scene. Sleeping inside a dead horse is the most outrageous scene of all. It’s like watching a documentary. The movie looked so real because the film crew only used natural lighting rather than studio light.

This movie is about a guy surviving and taking revenge on his partners for betrayal. Tom Hardy gave us a convincing portrayal of John Fitzgerald, the antagonist who killed Hugh’s adopted son and left him to death.
