A preview clip of upcoming release Hardcore Henry, an action science-fiction thriller movie directed by Ilya Naishuller, features South African actor Sharlto Copley.
Shot with head-mounted GoPro cameras, Hardcore Henry looks and feels like a first person shooter. The idea, I guess, is to make you feel part of all the action sequences. It is very light on plot, but very high on brain-dead action.
A man wakes up in a Moscow laboratory to learn that he’s been brought back from the dead as a half-human, half-robotic hybrid. With no memory of his former life, a woman who claims to be his wife tells him that his name is Henry. Before she can activate his voice, armed thugs storm in and kidnap her. As Henry starts to understand his new abilities, he embarks on a bloody rampage through the city to save his spouse from a psychopath (Danila Kozlovsky) who plans to destroy the world.
Hardcore Henry opens on the 3rd of June 2016 in South Africa.
