Tom Hardy Badass!

Loved it can't wait for part 2. This character fit Tom Hardy to a T. It has it all, suspenseful action, horror, gore and twists, but it amazes me how it all goes Tom's way. You don't know either to love him or hate him...but you always find yourself backing him. Always left me wanting more

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
