Hardcore Henry Review

(R)

Directed By: Ilya Naishuller

Starring: Sharlto Copley, Tim Roth, Haley Bennett

I loved this movie. The story was pretty original and I loved how the audience learns the situation slowly and confusedly along with the main character. I thought the first person POV was pretty cool. It really brought me into the movie experience and made it easier to feel what the hero is experiencing. The action was absolutely incredible and there was good pacing with nice comedic breaks here and there. If you weren’t born in the late 80’s or early 90’s, then the shaky and swinging camera could make you feel pretty nauseous. But I grew up with first person shooters so I stopped being distracted about a third through the movie. There is some of the most extreme violence I have ever seen in this movie so viewers beware. If you’re a film fan with an appreciation for action then this movie is for you but it deserves it’s R rating.
