Tom Hardy is one of the biggest British performers that have emerged in the last few years. From commencing his career with a small supporting role in Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down (2001) to leading the Venom franchise, he has definitely come a long way. His speciality includes the hard-hitting portrayals of unconventional, savage, rough, and absolute S.O.B characters. But he is also known for integrating enough and heart-winning amounts of comedy in many of his roles like Venom, Bronson, Handsome Bob, and others. He is prominent for his unique and straightforward persona in real life. He is set to appear as Eddie Brock again in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

Here are the top 10 Tom Hardy performances! Enjoy!

Bobby Saginowski (The Drop)

The Drop (2014)

The Drop consists of Hardy’s most constrained yet scary performance ever. Bobby looks like an innocent and sweet bartender until he leashes his wrath at the end. He works at a bar that is controlled by the mafia. One day, his bar gets robbed by a couple of masked robbers. The investigation of the robbery entangles his path with the mafia bosses. He works alongside Late James Gandolfini and Noomi Rapace in this movie. His transition from a soft-hearted dog lover to a wild son-of-a-gun surprises us the most. You better stay away from Rocco!

Alfie Solomons (Peaky Blinders)

Peaky Blinders (2014-present)

The moment we see Alfie on our screens, we know in an instant that the makers are cooking up something special. His bitter-sweet relationship with Tommy Shelby makes the show more interesting and entertaining. Yes, he has double-crossed Tommy several times. And he has also paid a heavy price for that. Thanks to the bullet that passed through his eye! Even after getting shot by Tommy, he has aided him in the most unexpected ways. But we cannot forget the epic showdown between them in the final episode of the fourth season. It was f–king biblical, mates!

Max Rockatansky (Mad Max: Fury Road)

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Admit it! An action movie cannot get crazier than Mad Max: Fury Road! But that’s what makes it so special. George Miller’s Mad Max franchise was already popular back in the 80s. But he breathed new fire in this franchise with fresh faces and one hell of a plot. Tom Hardy had the most difficult job in filling the shoes of his predecessor, Mel Gibson. But he did an excellent job in giving a fresh and savage portrayal of Max Rockatansky. Charlize Theron’s performance as Furiosa was also highly appreciated.

James Delaney (Taboo)

Taboo (2017)

Peaky Blinders fame, Steven Knight, along with the father-son duo of Chips Hardy and Tom Hardy, is responsible for creating this amazing and exhilarating tv-series. Tom dons the character of James Delaney in this show. After spending 12 long years in Africa, our protagonist returns to England to attend his father’s funeral. He possesses a total of 14 stolen diamonds. The viewers witness the exploration of several topics like corruption and Britain’s war with the US. Once again, Tom Hardy dispatches a commanding performance in the lead role.

Tommy Conlon (Warrior)

Warrior (2011)

The tale of two estranged brothers who compete in an MMA tournament to find out who’s the best fighter. Boom! You have a perfect blend of action and drama right here! The audience gets the most badass version of Tom Hardy in this film. He delivers one of the most bone-chilling and ferocious performances of his career. He shares the screen alongside Joel Edgerton here. The latter one plays the role of his estranged elder brother working as a physics teacher. He was a former MMA fighter. But he struggles with the lack of money for his daughter’s heart surgery.

The Kray Brothers (Legend)

Legend (2015)

There is no denying that Legend has many flaws. But Tom Hardy’s top-notch dual role keeps us affixed to it till the climax. The movie heavily depends upon the leading man’s mesmerizing performance. It has received its fair share of criticism for the inaccurate portrayal of some incidents. Inspired by a real-life story, it showcases and explores the lives of the Kray twins.

Bane (The Dark Knight Rises)

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Whenever we think about Batman’s Rogues Gallery, we always focus on characters like Joker, Penguin, Riddler, and others. But no one in their wildest dreams could have imagined the version of Bane that arrived with The Dark Knight Rises (2012). Nolan delivered the most realistic and brutal version of the masked monster to the fans. Tom Hary deserves special credit for literally living this iconic character. He might not have topped Ledger’s unforgettable role. But his menacing performance in this project proved that he was a worthy Batman villain.

John Fitzgerald (The Revenant)

The Revenant (2015)

The Revenant is one of those rare cinematic projects that bestows a perfect villain for its leading hero. Not many movies focus properly on their bad guys. More than half of the projects of Marvel Cinematic Universe suffer from this problem. But that’s definitely not the case here! Leo might have bagged an Oscar for his role. But he got a very tough competition in the form of Tom Hardy. The latter received rave reviews for his helluva selfish and ravening portrayal of Fitzgerald. He was also nominated for his fierce performance at the Academy Awards.

Ivan Locke (Locke)

Locke (2013)

Imagine a movie that displays only one performer throughout its entire runtime. It may become frustrating for some viewers. But it is damn horrifying for the performer to demonstrate his/her acting skills in this type of project. However, Tom Hardy accepted this challenging role from Steven Knight. And the result was simply marvellous. Despite being the only live-action character in the film, he successfully attracts the viewers with his wide range of emotions. He attends a total of 36 calls in a single car ride. It is enough to make a person crazy!

Charles Bronson (Bronson)

Bronson (2008)

Bronson delivers the career-best performance of Tom Hardy. It literally changed his world upside down. This movie helped him in boosting his career in his early days. He plays the titular character, also known as the most violent prisoner in the history of Great Britain. He was transferred numerous times from places to places for his hostile nature. The film provides a unique and creative portrayal of Bronson’s life. He explains his story in the theatrical vaudeville-style in front of a large audience.
