What is it?

The 2015 Russian-American science fiction action movie Hardcore Henry.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

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…

My Thoughts

I saw this movie the year that it came out, the first-person view and some other aspects made for some good concepts, and there were some good stunts.

I also like how this was filmed like it was all filmed in almost one take, and I liked the use of telekinesis and the main villain Akan and how he talked et cetera; and I wish that he would have been in more of the movie.

Sharlto Copley did a good job playing different versions of his character Jimmy.

This movie was not bad but it was lacking in some areas, with some improvements this could have been a better film, and I hope that they will make another movie that is even better next time.

The end,
