Storyline

Hardcore Henry is an action film told from a first person perspective: You remember nothing. Mainly because you've just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you should probably go get her back. Who's got her? His name's Akan; he's a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination. You're also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy. He may be on your side, but you aren't sure. If you can survive the insanity, and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Good luck, Henry. You're likely going to need it...

Trivia

One of the movie posters seen in the film is "Lady In the Lake", the first feature film to have been shot entirely in the first person POV. Interestingly enough, "Lady in the Lake" is generally considered a flop for that very reason. This technique is rarely used outside such films as "Russian Ark" and "Hardcore Henry". See more »

Goofs

When Henry falls to see a reflection of his face, the picture is steady on the mirror surface with the head moving into view, rather than the other way round. See more »

Quotes

Henry's Father: You... little... pussy.

Crazy Credits

Torwards the end of the end credits, while they're still rolling, a beep from an answering machine comes on and it's Jimmy. The message says, "Hello, Henry. Well, if you're hearing this, there's one more thing I need you to do." See more »

Amazingly Awesome!!! New Genre!
7 April 2016 | by hopeseekrSee all my reviews

This movie is INSANELY awesome!!!

If I could rate it a 20, I would, just from the shear story telling, character investment and novel first-person POV, not to mention all the video game tropes, puns, and long shots!!

At least 90% of the movie are long shots, that's how well it was directed!

It contains a LOT of elements from Counter Strike, Modern Warfare, Half- Life 2, Portal and Mirrors Edge, so if you like those games, you should absolutely love this movie!

It has a LOT of gore in it, so I wouldn't recommend it to the squeamish, but if you're a high-octane true-blooded alpha male like myself, you should absolutely love it!
