Hardcore Henry — A simple story with a first person shooter perspective — 6*/10

  • Story: Linear, going from one goal to another. Full of action and a few silly jokes. Violent. Gory at times.
  • Style: First person shooter turned action sci-fi movie. It can make you kind of dizzy, but it will definitively put you very strongly in the skin of the hero. I got out of my seat and I took a few unsteady steps and it took something like haft a minute to get back to my own point of view.
  • Pacing: Constant action.
  • Ending: Interesting, if simple, with a dash of predictability.
  • Dialogs: Uninventive, except for one character.
  • Characters: Most are extremely simple, but one is kind of a excellent idea.
  • Acting: Nothing to be amazed by, except for one.
  • Known actors: Sharlto Copley (another crazy good performance for him).
  • Cameos: Tim Roth.
  • Special Effects: Good.
  • Camera Work: That point of view is definitively unusual.
  • Score: Good.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Entertainment value: Depends if you can stand the first person point of view.
  • Who is it for? Those looking for something different or first person enthusiasts and Copley fans.
