Edit 6/12/2016: I realized that the score for this movie was too high. A 7/10 in the United States education system is not only passing but passable. It is one level above barely passing, so I decided to knock it down a level. This is the true score of a movie of this caliber, a movie with a couple of good scenes but not good overall. And to be honest a little disappointing.
Original: Hardcore Henry is a unique film from a technical perspective. The movie had to have multiple GoPros filming at the same time, and then the two images are stitched together to give you a first person perspective. it is this perspective, or gimmick, that you are paying to see this movie for.
Hardcore Henry first got attention because it was a feature length film in the style of an online video that garnered a lot of attention. That video was essentially a condensed version of Hardcore Henry itself but smaller in scale. The enjoyment from watching the video never waned because the music pumped you up and the great action kept you intrigued to continue on. For Hardcore Henry, it outstays its welcome.
The first person aspect of the film and its charm wear off far too early into the movie. When you reach that point, you are just waiting for the movie to end. Other than a couple of jokes spread across the movie, the film is parkour and fighting. With that said you might think that this is just an action movie where you can turn your brain off and have a good time, but that's not the case.
Since your watching the movie in first person perspective there is so much camera shaking and movement it is hard to follow what is going on. If you blink at the wrong time you might not know where the character is or what is going on. Obviously this might not be a problem for some people, but since the camera is constantly moving, it can make the picture seem out of focus. This leads to the overall picture quality to look fuzzy. Other than the picture quality, the CGI is also sub par for this movie. The opening sequence has a toy breaking against a wall and not for a second did I think it was real. The continued use of CGI when it was used was so obvious, that is probably the reason they kept it to only some parts of the film.
The last area in which the movie fails to capture the audience is the story; the one thing that should separate a short video from a feature length film. Not only is the story a background for all the explosions, but it is has a couple plot holes that really make you question what is even going on.
The movie Hardcore Henry is not very good, but if you want a feature length film of first person then try it out. You'll get a couple of laughs in and there are a lot of explosions. All in all sitting through the movie was entertaining enough for me to never want to see it again, but not regret seeing it.
