Underrated Tom Hardy Films You Need To Check Out

Published

on

Tom Hardy has found success in major box office movies. Like any other actor, however, the Englishman has also been in flicks that fell under the radar. Thankfully, services like Netflix and Amazon bring these gems to your fingertips. Here are five smaller films where Hardy delivers some astonishing talent.

Marie Antoinette

While Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette gained praise for its costumes, the film failed to deliver at the box office. Starring Kirsten Dunst, the film showcases the daily life of the former queen of France. Hardy portrays Raumont, and while he has a few scenes, the actor nails it everytime.

Columbia Pictures

RocknRolla

Directed by Guy Ritchie, RocknRolla finds Hardy portraying driver Handsome Bob, who’s trying to avoid jail time. The comedy film features an ensemble cast, including Gerard Butler, Ludacris, and Thandie Newton. While the film didn’t do so much in the United States, it was a number one hit in the U.K.

Warner Bros. Pictures

London Road

If you’re in the mood to hear Hardy sing, London Road is the film for you. Based on the musical of the same name, it features Hardy as a singing cab driver. Only released in the U.K., the film earned Hardy the British Actor of the Year award at the London Critics Circle Film Awards.

Picturehouse Entertainment

Lawless

Lawless was the second film written by musician Nick Cave that saw the light of day. Unfortunately, plenty of off screen drama caused several delays for the film. Hardy plays Forrest Bondurant, who starts up a moonshine company with his brothers. The film was such a success at the Cannes Film Festival, it gained a rare 10 minute standing ovation.

Annapurna Pictures

Bronson

Hardy portrays Charles Bronson in the 2008 film Bronson, and we’re not talking about the actor. This Bronson was considered to be the most ruthless prisoner to ever step foot in a British jail cell. To prepare for the role, Hardy met Bronson on several occasions. Bronson was extremely proud of Hardy’s portrayal. “You wouldn’t want to meet him down a dark alley at 3 a.m. Tom looks more like me than I look like me,” he said in a note.
