Highly Suspect Reviews: Hardcore Henry

While Hardcore Henry might not have much of a plot, it certainly delivers visceral entertainment in spades and in a way you’ve never seen before…well, at least not in a movie theater.

Basically, YOU play Henry, a guy whose memories are now gone who was in some sort of accident and has awakened to find a female scientist attaching bionic parts to him. She informs him she’s his wife. But almost immediately, BOOM, bad guys show up and the film goes into overdrive as Henry tries to save his wife from evil by killing everyone in sight…for pretty much the entire rest of the running time. And did I mention Sharlto Copley is playing a ton of different roles here?

Ok, so it’s action packed, super-violent, and funny. What’s the problem? Well, It’s all filmed first-person go-pro. Yes, this will be a problem for the whole “I don’t want to watch someone play a video game for an hour and a half” crowd. But a lot more of you are gonna lose your minds over this thing. Listen to Chris Herman and Chris Cox explain…

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
