Hardcore Henry in 100 Words

I nearly broke my cardinal rule regarding films and turned off Hardcore Henry.

Not because of the quality of the film (not great) but because of the first person point of view making me feel a bit sick.

Eventually I seemed to settle into it but I think there’s a reason they aren’t very common.

HH is essentially a video game without the control. How┬áit unfolds and the way things are explained feels like a ropey COD clone. The perspective makes the gore quite unsettling at times as you’re so directly involved in it.

Technically impressive but very hollow.
