    Marco I did not like this film. Found Hardys acting in it really off putting.

    How did you find it?

    Same - not anywhere near up to his usual standards, in the likes of Taboo or Peaky Blinders! Don't think that sort of role suited him at all. He needs something darker...

    The action scenes were ok though, and sounded pretty good through the home-cinema system

    I think perhaps he doesn't have what it takes for a leading role, and does better as a supporting actor. I thought he was great in "The Revenant", and the part suited him perfectly. As you say, a "darker" part.

    Yes, The Revenant was fantastic.

    I do agree, although I think it's more about him having the *right* role, whether that's on a leading or support basis. I'd like to see him do a gangster film, or play some other violent/brutal role, possibly even in a war film, as for me his naturally menacing and brooding demeanour would be perfect!

    Overall, for me, he suits the role of being a 'baddy', much more than that of a 'goody, or neutral one. So yes, he needs to be given something darker and more hard-hitting.
