Looks like an instant cult classic, I'm in.
Looks fun if you aren't prone to motion sickness...
Strap in. Hardcore Henry is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time: 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 (Danila Kozlovsky); 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 (Sharlto Copley.) 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…
Is he using a BFG at the end of that trailer?
When the Queen song kicked in I was fucking sold. Great trailer
Now I've never had motion sickness in a theater, but dear Christ I'd be worried about seeing this on the big screen. Seems like a fucking awesome movie to watch drunk with friends though.
VR version need to come out for watching on the rift!
Heard about this. Reminds me of this sweet video. Don't know if the novelty will hold up for 90 minutes but I'll still check it out.
haha, this looks both awful, and awesome at the same time. The camera tricks required are remarkable.
That looks awesome.
The trailer also shows that everything is better with Queen.
Needless to say, I cannot fucking wait to finally see it in a theater. Been following this ever since I first saw the video.

1) this will be the next movie blamed for a mass shooting
2) edgar winter as the bad guy is an odd choice
I will probably wait to see it on a smaller screen due to motion sickness, but it does look pretty bad ass.
Saw this trailer before Deadpool. I just don't get the draw, it seems as cheesy (and unnecessary) a gimmick as 3D, to me. I'd rather just have an action movie.
Sharlto Copely was on today's Nerdist podcast. was pretty entertaining to hear him talk about making this movie. Guess most if not all of it was done with a cam strapped to a stuntman's head.
This comes out on Friday, early reviews are promising as well.
The movie is so awesome.
In the beginning, it's really confusing watching all the chaos from POV. But it gets better.
Sharlto Copley was really great. Loved the bad guy.soundtrack A++
PS: those russian chicks ...omg!!!
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.

My friend wants to see it but will probably need a bucket of dramamine to make it through the movie.
Not a fan of shaky cam, so probably won't see this, but I'd be interested in the next step of doing this with a 360 degree camera and putting it on the upcoming VR devices. I'm sure it would be difficult since you wouldn't be able to use sets or control lighting, and I'm not sure how they'd handle sound without the boom mics, but hopefully someone gives it a go.
Definitely a refreshing action movie with a nice bare bones story and even the twist at the end did go off the rails. Needs more coked out Copley and musical numbers for the sequel 9/10.
Music video they made with all the behind the scenes stuff, that car ramp.
Saw this last night. It completely flew under my radar and wouldn't have even noticed it had it not been for a friend of mine pulling me along.
I'll say this is a very good "proof of concept" film, and will most likely go down as a cult classic. What I mean by "proof of concept" is that this is one of the first first person films made (I think there is an old black and white Hollywood film from the 50s that might be the very first). It proves that it is possible but there are still some obstacles to overcome. Most importantly is to invent some kind of Steady Cam for GoPro, and while they do their best to reduce shaking, sometimes it is inevitable.
The fighting scenes and parcour are awesome. Suffering from vertigo myself there are some climbing scenes that have me at the edge of my seat. But to be honest, the thing that really ties this film together, and makes it worth watching is the role of "Jimmy". Seriously, this actor has one of the best parts I've seen in a long time, and pulls it off fantastically.
I would recommend it, to be honest. It's very "fresh". Sure, the story won't win any awards, and I've already mentioned the limitations that GoPro has, but all in all, I think people who enjoy new things in cinema and/or FPS games will enjoy this.
I hope they get enough money from this to continue developing this type of film, as I think it has a good future once they solve the issue of stability.
Saw this with my dad and he got vertigo(dizzy and wanted to throw up) watching it and there were no warnings for that. We had to leave and get vouchers from the theater, So if your in your 60s beware!
"It's better to look ugly and win, than pretty and lose."
Pretty good. I'd give it an 8/10.
The first 10 minutes were the roughest after he's landed. Partly getting used to the camera, partly telling my brain it's not a video game and I can't control it. I kept getting mad at him for doing things the 'wrong way'.
Echoing the fact that this movie was awesome. I'd definitely watch parts of it many times over the coming years.
Shaky cam didn't, and has never, bothered me, but I could see where if you're susceptible to that sort of thing you might want to pass. It would be a shame though, as this movie is bad ass (for what it is meant to be).
Shaky cam ruins movies for me, like Bourne 2. This wasn't bad at all, I didn't even get a shaky cam feeling. Also, I loved the movie, it was a ton of fun.
What a badass movie. I don't think it's getting the credit it deserves. A wild ride, with many gaming references and humor. Just don't go in expecting much more than action and gore and you're golden. So glad I caught this in the theaters.
This kind of movie will be a viable genre in the future. Hardcore Henry has made me a believer. Just imagine a good 3D camera, better stabilization, and higher framerates. It's coming. I hope in 5 - 10 years we see a proper budget (~40+ mil) with better technology.
Writer director comments:
Good copy of this on IPT. Solid movie 8/10 (If you don't mind shaky-cam). I only wish this was 60fps. I really hate that Hollywood doesn't use it more.
if there was a way to make this w/o horrible shakey cam i'd give it a higher rating, on the plus side Sharlto Copely was pretty good, it was fun to see him play 5 diff ppl, i liked his war guy the best, he had the best scenes. (well aside from russian whore house)
The plot was kind of bizarre, and I want to say shitty. But as an action movie, it was A+. I will say the ending was definitely unique.
The soundtrack, however...man, they fucking nailed that. The Queen at the end (which I want to say they used for the trailer) gave me goosebumps.
I just finished watching this. Absolutely no problems with feeling nauseous. The movie was really fucking awesome. I laughed quite a bit at the violence. Such a badass movie.
