Tom Hardy has made many wonderful memories in the industry giving the fans various movies that have been a box office hit for sure. Today as the actor celebrates his 44th birthday, we have listed 6 of his greatest movies that will go on for a long time.

1. Inception (2010)

In Christopher Nolan’s mythic sci-fi thriller about a team of Dreamweavers employed to get into a businessman’s subconscious, Hardy portrays Eames, a master forger and personality thief, with a showboating connotation of sartorial splendour and the confident cunning of someone who’s already read the script and knows he’ll wake up in good condition.

2. Warrior (2011)

For some critics, Hardy didn’t completely materialize as a force with which to be reckoned until he emerged opposite Joel Edgerton in Gavin O’Connor’s improbably powerful and affecting drama about two long-estranged brothers fated to clash as fighters in a mixed martial arts tournament.

3. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

As the brutish Bane of Batman’s life, Hardy repeatedly depicts the precision of the motto that actions speak louder than words. Just as significant, however, he potently underlines in key scenes the parallels between supervillain and cult ruler when ant comes to governing inferiors and awakening rabbles in the final chapter of Christopher Nolan’s Caped Crusader triptych.

4. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Hardy’s appalling physicality and unchanged badassery make him a great option to take over the main role of the post-apocalyptic runner originally played decades before by Mel Gibson. Better still, he shuts the deal by creating pitch-perfect chemistry with co-star Charlize Theron as the equally amazing Imperator Furiosa for one of the all-time great action-movie teamings.

5. Dunkirk (2017)

Reunited with “Dark Knight Rises” director Christopher Nolan, Hardy once again has his voice deformed and his face somewhat hidden by a mask — in this case, the oxygen mask on an RAF Spitfire bomber pilot on a WWII expedition. All of which gives rise to the graceful-under-pressure articulateness of his execution all the more remarkable as his courageous-under-fire role stays alone in a cockpit and striving against long odds throughout one of the plot threads entwine in Nolan’s time-tripping scenario.

6. Venom (2018)

Hardy is entitled to a high-profile role in a Marvel film — and he is one of the very few actors who would be equally plausible as a superhero or supervillain. But this isn’t the one. Here he plays tough investigative journalist Eddie Brock, who takes down corporate frauds in his weekly online show. But then he “fuses”, horribly, with a symbiote organism admitted from outer space by literally the kind of evil business behemoth that he uncovers on his programme and becomes the monstrous Venom.
