Hardcore Henry is a film that I knew absolutely nothing about before watching this trailer. I must say after watching it that I cannot wait to see this film! The film is told entirely through first-person perspective, making this probably the closest thing to a video game come to life. The trailer had me asking myself how director Ilya Naishuller and co. managed to pull of some of the things that the trailer flaunts. I get the feeling that this is one of those movies akin to Crank, in the sense  that it essentially came out of nowhere, and turned out to be a really fun ride. Hopefully it won’t take itself too seriously, but either way, count me in on this one!

Here’s the official synopsis:

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…
