Tom Hardy "made Charles Bronson look like a bit of a pansy" according to prison guards, the lag's son has claimed.
Bronson 'tells the life story of Britain's most notorious prisoner but his son George Bamby claims guards remember him being 20 times the fighter seen in the blockbuster.
But he said the 68-year-old lag himself was happy enough with the portrayal that Hardy carried out after getting to know him over the phone and later face to face.
Bamby told LADbible: "He's seen the film, and he thought it was absolutely brilliant. He thought Tom Hardy did a good job and portrayed him well.
"But, the funny thing is, when I go in to see him in prison, the amount of screws that have said to me 'have you seen that film about your dad, Bronson ?'"
"I go 'yeah' and they say, 'well, you saw him in the film and saw Tom play him in the film, times that by 20 and that's what your dad is really like in a fight'.
"The screws say that the film Bronson made him look a bit of a pansy, because he's like 20 times harder than that."
It was not until appearing on a Channel 4 TV show that Bamby identified Bronson as his father which was then confirmed with a DNA test.
Having built up a movie-worthy reputation, Bamby says his dad just wants to leave prison for a quiet life painting in a caravan.
He added that he "does a lot of stuff for charity" and that he's "very calm these days".
