Hardcore Henry (18)
Filmed from the first-person perspective like a live-action video game, Ilya Naishuller’s bullet-riddled thriller literally unfolds through the eyes of a vengeful man whose wife has been kidnapped by an evil warlord.
Henry wakes up in a lab with no memory of the past. A beautiful woman named Estelle (Haley Bennett), who claims to be Henry’s wife, explains that he was resuscitated from the brink of death as a half-human, half-robot soldier with superhuman powers.
Before she can explain further, an albino criminal named Akan (Danila Kozlovsky) and his cronies storm the facility and kidnap Estelle.
Henry is in an unknown city in Moscow and everyone wants him dead. Everything but a mysterious British guy named Jimmy (Sharlto Copley).
Blood spills and the death toll mounts as Henry completes a series of gruesome tasks, leading to a confrontation with Akan, who has telekinetic powers.
If Henry can survive the madness and unravel the mystery, he may discover his purpose and the truth behind his identity.
