Every so often a filmmaker or artist will come and change the way people see movies, or experience art in general. A few years ago, filmmaker Ilya Naishuller started an Indiegogo Campaign for post production funds for a feature length spectacle, which would include the whole thing being shown in first person perspective, that would be unlike any other seen before! When it first campaigned, it was entitled Hardcore. The footage that was shot and released to show what they could do, blew people away! In just 2 months it had met its goal, and more! Thinking back on that whole thing, it is pretty damn exciting to think that someone had a vision to create something fresh and new, they showed to people, the people put their hard earned money towards, they demanded it, the film got a title punch up, and 2 years later it is being shown in theaters all over the place!
This movie is now called Hardcore Henry! It stars Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, and an appearance by the great Tim Roth as Henry's father! And who starred as Henry? Stuntmen naturally! With all of the crazy stunts that would be needed, and people would never being seeing the character of Henry since what we would be seeing is everything in his point of view, it seemed like the logical choice! What I found to be so riveting is that YOU are Henry for that period of time. From the moment Henry wakes up as a half man/half machine, to the last frame of the film! It was a Hardcore fully immersive cinematic experience- 90 minutes you wished was longer! If you love action movies this is one not to miss!
