Tom Hardy has an incredible and compelling filmography, ranging from big budget comic book movies and in-depth character studies to high-profile action movies and war stories. Then as Venom: let there be carnage approaches, let’s take a look at some of the actor’s most notable projects and where to watch them.
Mad Max: Fury Road
Mad Max: Fury Road, directed by legendary filmmaker George Miller, is one of the best films of the 2010s and stars Hardy as the main character. As a movie, Road of fury is pretty perfect as a nonstop thrill ride of vehicle warfare with outstanding performance from Charlize Theron. But what’s striking about Hardy’s take on Max is that he doesn’t say much at all. His performance is very physical – he’s all in action, and for half the movie he can’t do anything but growl and work his way through the events unfolding around him. That’s not to say that Hardy’s Mad Max isn’t great, but by design he takes a back seat in Charlize Theron’s Furiosa.
Mad Max: Fury Road is available to stream on Amazon Prime or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
Locke is essentially a solo show starring Hardy, who plays Ivan Locke, a man who travels to London by car to be with a former colleague with whom he had a one-night stand and who gave birth prematurely with his child despite the expectation of his wife and children. him at home. Ivan takes call after call while driving his BMW, and the audience never sees another character. The camera moves in and out of the car, but the focus is on Ivan and his state of mind. Locke is a unique film that is a great showcase for Hardy, who has to dive in to carry the film with his talent alone.
Locke is available to stream on Showtime, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
Drop follows Hardy as Bobby Saginowski, a bartender at a Chechen mob-controlled bar in Brooklyn that serves as a jumping off point for money and various other illegalities. After the bar robbery, Boby finds himself embroiled in an investigation and must face his Chechen bosses. Drop is a good detective film and a rare performance by Hardy where he doesn’t play to the extreme, but rather to the full on a character who is a low level associate of the crowd. He’s a soft-spoken guy who runs a bar and gets drawn into a web of trouble, and Hardy plays him perfectly. The film is also the latest film appearance of the late James Gandolfini, who plays the bar’s former owner.
The Drop is available to stream on Amazon Prime or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
The dark knight rises
The dark knight rises is the final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, and although he’s arguably the weakest of the bunch, he still has his charms, especially Hardy’s Bane. The villain’s face is obscured throughout the movie by a mask, but every line he utters has become iconic, immortalizing his place as one of the most memorable villainous performances of all time. But even if Bane isn’t your cup of tea, the movie still packs all of Nolan’s classic action sets that make his take on the Dark Knight so iconic.
The Dark Knight Rises is available to stream on HBO Max, Hulu, and Amazon Prime or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
Start is the only collaboration between Christopher Nolan and Tom Hardy where the actor does not have to hide or obscure his face. The film is a high-level heist story in which Cobbs (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his team must implant an idea into the mind of a business executive while battling an enemy who is prepared for them every step of the way. . Start is confusing and fascinating, with some of the most remarkable settings you can see in a movie. The film also inspired countless theories and debates about its ending, and its philosophical ideas are still debated ten years after its release.
Inception is available to stream on Peacock, Amazon Prime, or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
Hardy re-team with Nolan on Dunkirk, one of the best WWII movies in recent years. It’s a movie wonder, combining a tense and captivating war story with classic Nolan DIY with the audience’s perception of time. Tom only appears onscreen for a short time as a British fighter pilot, and of course he’s masked again, but he makes up for it by being part of one of the film’s most thrilling sequences.
Dunkirk is available to stream on HBO Max, Hulu and Amazon Prime or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV and Vudu.
warrior is a sports drama directed by Gavin O’Conner (The way back), with Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton as two mixed martial artist brothers. Hardy plays Tommy, who returns home to his distant family after serving in the military and begins training for “Sparta,” an MMA tournament. His younger brother Brendan, played by Edgerton, enters the competition, and the two brothers are forced to confront each other and confront their pasts in a moving story. warrior features authentic MMA action, but it’s the emotional core of the film between Hardy and Edgerton that is the main event.
Warrior is available to stream on Fubo TV, Amazon Prime, or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
The ghost won DiCaprio his first Oscar, but the film’s performance belongs to Tom Hardy. DiCaprio is as good as expected, but he is naturally silent for the most part as he plays Hugh Glass, a man in search of survival and revenge who is maimed by a giant bear. Hardy, meanwhile, plays an unpleasant character and the man Glass is about to kill, John Fitzgerald, which allows him to chew up the landscape in a way DiCaprio couldn’t.
The Revenant is available for rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
Bronson is based on the true story of Charles Bronson (Hardy), one of the most violent inmates in the British prison system who is incarcerated after he robs a jewelry store. Bronson quickly runs into trouble with the guards who unleash so much violence that he spends most of his time in isolation. Hardy delivers a brutal physical performance where he jumps off tables, runs into multiple guards and flies out of his prison cell completely naked, making Bronson required viewing of the actor’s filmography.
Bronson is available to stream on Tubi, Vudu, and Amazon Prime, or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, and Apple TV.
Venom: let there be carnage hits theaters in September, and the success of its predecessor is easy to understand. Venom almost hit the billion dollar mark at the box office, and that’s probably due to the fact that this is one of the most unique superhero movies in a market that’s chock-full of them. Hardy, of course, goes out of his way as Eddie Brock, and the Venom Symbiote is the perfect partner for him. The film is gritty, unique, and doesn’t hold back the violence that many of its comic book film contemporaries lack.
Venom is available to stream on Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Sling TV or to rent on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
