Hardcore Henry is the first feature-length film to be told entirely from a first-person POV. It’s also a high-octane action film with stunts galore, making it akin to a first-person shooter.
Writes CNET’s Richard Trenholm “Hardcore Henry is utterly fantastical from the moment you awake in a mysterious laboratory and see your own limbs replaced with cyborg parts, which, let’s face it, is pretty darn cool. This is clearly reminiscent of a first-person shooter video game. I suspect the movie will be a love-it-or-hate-it deal, but it’s certainly immediate.”
