Meet Hardcore Henry, the ultimate FPS movie! Blu-ray and DVD released today!



HARDCORE HENRY

What happens if you take $2.000.000 and a box full of GoPros and give them to a group of Russian stuntmen and the director of an infamous music video of his punk band "Biting Elbows" ? Hardcore Henry is what happens! And it is INSANE! The movie is basically first person shooter, parkour and beat-'em-up rolled in one.

Shot almost entirely using GoPros mounted on a stuntman's head, the first half mirrors Mirror's Edge while the shootouts of the second half recall Call of Duty (see what I did there?). “Co-star” Sharlto Copley acts more or less like a level guide/ medic and at one point even looks like COD's Captain Price.

Director IIya Naishuller might not have made the first movie shot in POV, but he sure made the first one with such crazy stunts and WTF-moments. Oh, and the story? At 90 minutes running, climbing, punching, kicking and shooting time, the “why” becomes rather irrelevant. The whole movie feels a lot more like levels, objectives, checkpoints and even a final boss fight, rather than a traditional story arc.

The Blu-ray and DVD are being released today so get your copy now to experience this first first person rollercoaster!
