    For the guys who like butt kicking

    |
    Posted .

    Hardcore Henry was a whole lot of fun. A true first person shooter fan's wet dream of a movie. The plot is thin, the action spectacular has a cool plot device and the obligatory "twist". If you go in understanding that this is a partly crowd funded, independent movie, it is EASILY, HANDS DOWN, the best independent action movie ever made. From beginning to end, you are the hero of the movie, and that certainly has it's pros and it's cons. If you're sensitive to motion sickness, it might mess with you a bit, but I found that it didn't bother me at all. Because of the "first person" view, don't expect too many "cinematic vistas", the visual splendor comes from the intense, never yielding, constant flow of action and violence. You've never seen a movie like Hardcore Henry, but I'm guessing if you've played a few video games you've basically seen this film but to see it play out in real life (most of the action in this movie is practical effects with the use of editing to make "the magic happen") is truly something to behold. When you see Henry hundreds of feet off the ground suspended from a helicopter and his rope is cut, the footage of him falling to the Earth in magnificent style, really happened. When you see Henry free-climbing buildings or being blown off the roof of a truck, a real actor was bungied off a truck and the equipment was all edited out later. What I'm telling you is that this movie has AMAZING stunt work that might get passed off as simple computer "animation" when it's not. Finally, I have to mention Sharlito Copley. If you're not a fan of this guy (District 9, or Murdoch from the A-Team movie) you will be when this is over. In the course of this movie he plays a wide variety of personalities and it works very, very well. I don't write reviews like this much, but I think this movie is going to fly under a lot of people's radar. Let me be clear though, this movie knows it's audience. If you have to think really hard when you watch a movie, pass on this one, it's not deep. If you want a date night movie, this isn't the one. (Caveat being if your girl is a HARDCORE first person gamer, then you might be her hero.) But if you're a guy that likes your action video games, your finishing movies, your gun play, and movies with cyborgs, violence,strippers, guns, coked out madmen, guns, bad guys with psychic powers, guns, violence, grenades, guns and violent bad guys with guns, this movie is going to impress you.

    Nicely Done Concept With A Cheesy Plot

    |
    Posted .

    As long as you know that this movie is more style over substance, then you'll probably enjoy it more. When I watched it, I wasn't expecting a riveting story, which allowed the few twists that are in the loose story to make a bit more of an impact. But if you're interested in seeing this, it's definitely not for the story. The gimmick of having a first-person view hard R action flick is a novel one, but because the filmmakers approached it as seriously as they did, what might've turned out to be a really cheesy sci-fi action flick succeeded in going past solely relying on its gimmick to becoming a quite enjoyable albeit cheesy action flick. The action sequences are really well done, and because it was filmed in and around Russia, the safety laws of what stunt men could and couldn't do were a bit laxed which allowed the filmmakers to make the stunts look even more dangerous, because they were. Hardcore Henry does what it sets out to do pretty well, and it's well worth a watch or two because I promise that you won't be able to catch everything that they did the first time through. I'd love to see what they could do with a sequel and a slightly tighter written plot. Any action movie fan should give this a look.

    Good Movie for Video-Gamers (SPOILERS)

    |
    Posted .

    I really didn't know much about this movie. I had seen it around in DVD sections of stores, and then I DVRed it when it was on a movie channel. After I saw it with my teenage son, I went ahead and got it, when I found it at BestBuy. The movie is shot from the perspective of a first-person video game, in which, the main character finds himself waking-up in a bizarre situation that he must investigate, and interact with, in order to figure out what is going on, and who he is. There's lots of action, violence, and gun-play... all with a slightly SciFi flavor. If you like this type of video-game, you'll really like this movie. My son is an avid video-gamer, and loved the movie. I don't play video-games, but I also really liked the mystery of the situation, the action, and the ending (which surprised my son a little). Again, it is shot in first-person perspective... but, not like "found footage" movies such as "Blair Witch". It is much better.

    A movie in the first person view

    |
    Posted .

    It was billed as an unusual experience and an adrenaline rush. In truth it reminded me of a combination of a first person video game and the Crank movies from Jason Statham. Our hero awakes to see mechanical pieces being added to his body after suffering a horrible accident (or perhaps not so accidental). He can't speak because supposedly that hadn't been fixed yet. So he escapes with the woman who claims to be his wife using an escape pod from some flying lab. The movie continues as he basically gets led from one attempt to get information and help to the next. Even that is set up like a video game as a voice of one the characters he has met keeps urging him along. It felt a bit like one of the more recent Russian attempts at big action movies. While it wasn't necessarily the greatest of films or even completely original in style, it did have a certain amount of fun. It isn't necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but it was entertaining enough for a low price. I wouldn't spend $20 on it, but for a $10 movie it might be worth watching a couple times.

    I enjoyed because it felt like a video game or how you would it through your eyes. My girlfriend was not as impressed as I was.

    Fun movie with a unique take.

    |
    Posted .

    I really enjoyed the movie. I had heard a lot of negative reviews but after watching it I felt the movie was actually pretty good. Had a interesting store and the perspective of watching it in first person was very interesting. I felt they could have fleshed out the story a little more but when you think about watching a movie, you think of different scenes where you may follow a secondary character or even cut scene to the bad guy giving his monologue on what his plan is. In this movie you learn things thru the eyes of the main character. Nothing cuts away from what Henry sees, you learn only what he learns when he learns it. This makes for an interesting story.

    interesting new take on action

    |
    Posted .

    At first, watching from a first person view seemed disorienting, even though I play many first person shooter video games, without controlling the camera it took a while to acclimate. It did not take me long and after getting used to the motion I really liked this movie. The story was sort of meh, but the action was good and because of the first person camera mode, it felt like playing a video game. I believe there are better action movies you could watch, but the uniqueness is well worth the low price.

    Entertaining Movie

    |
    Posted .

    1st off this movie is shot entirely from the 1st person perspective. Meaning that the they filmed the movie from the viewers perspective as if you were right there witnessing the events unfold in front of you. This might give some viewers motion sickness & at times it can be taxing to watch it the fast action & movements. Otherwise this movie is very entertaining & unlike anything that has been filmed before it.

    Really good, violent, movie.

    |
    Posted .

    This movie is exactly what it was promoted to be. An hour and thirty six minutes of a lot of violence, jokes, and well, shakiness. The film is extraordinarily violent; not for the squeamish. It has plenty of action, free-running, stunts, and plenty of room for comedic elements. 'Hardcore' is an all-around fun time. Just be okay with the violence. It's only 90 minutes of your time that you'll likely want to experience over and over again.

    Great film for a BIG screen

    |
    Posted .

    Hardcore Henry should definitely be given credit for it's groundbreaking first person perspective. It's truly a unique viewing experience, however due to this very perspective, you will find the film is best viewed on a large screen. The bigger the better. The action is continuous, and the body count would even make John Wick envious! A tremendous mind numbing action film!

    This movie really surprised me. Didn't get a chance to see it in the theater, but I wish I had. Visual roller coaster with well written dialogue. Awesome action in a first person point of view. Didn't think it would work for more than 90 minutes, but it was so well done that it didn't mess with me at all. Give it a goog's, but after that, just buy it.

    Semi-Great

    Murder and mayhem from beginning to end. The action never stops, literally. Film is told from the first person which is a very different angle and works very well. I enjoyed this film because you get to try to figure out what is happening and why along with the major character.

    Very good and different movie

    I really wanted to see this in the theater but could not. I normally do not by a disc if I have not already seen the movie but was very interested in the first person view of this movie. It is a very good movie although a little tough to follow at first as it is very fast paced. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

    Nonstop action, front to back. This movie is seriously out there in terms of story line and presentation. Hang on to your hats! And not for the faint of heart types. Brutal. They should have called it 'Hard Core Jimmy' though ... just saying.

    Interesting perspective

    Cool first person POV movie. Plot begins in the middle of technology and superhuman evolution. Story gets a bit too much like a video game near the end, but the perspective is fun to experience, and the mangled-good-guy-gets-bad-guy plot fits a certain mood.

    This movie is nonstop action from beginning to end. Gratuitous violence is a must for this film. By the end of the movie you're gonna ask yourself what did I just watch! By the way this movie is in first person view. Every scene except for the first two minutes.
