Drezzy65 - The movie is ehhhh...but OH HOLY FUCK is Tom Hardy phenomenal in this.
Dan O'Neill45 - Tom Hardy’s performance is purely amazing, and there are a lot of awesome ass-kicking scenes, but the script fails at actually being a story, or giving any insight into a real-life person I would have loved to know so much more about.
