This is the "hardcore" fact of life.
29 April 2004 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Seeing Hardcore, many would mistake it for a somewhat ripoff (or homeage) of Quentin Tarantino's films. But it's not. Based on a Greek book, Hardcore brings the life and times of two girls, which adventures start from the gutter and move through a journey to success, with a price.

Dennis Iliadis succeeds into what other directors couldn't do in the so called "new Greek cinema" wave.His film captivates the attention of the audience, along with the two actresses who can really act, given the fact that the film does contain nude sequences.

It's a perfect mixture of guns, drugs, sex and violence, a trip through corruption and redemption. The film is a little more lengthy though, and it seems that there are two films combined.
