HARDCORE HENRY (2016): More Rollercoaster Than Movie
Henry is just an average guy... An average guy who was blown to pieces, rebuilt as a cyborg and now has to tear his way through Russia to save his wife from a telekinetic madman who looks and sounds like an albino Tommy Wiseau. Yup, perfectly normal guy with first world problems.
In a summer where most films will entertain audiences by placating to them and their expectations, it's refreshing to see an absolutely insane movie created through the sheer inspiration of one filmmaker.
Hardcore Henry is a movie that's not for everyone, but the few that succumb to its violent charms will no doubt LOVE it. The fact that you can see this scrappy, violent little Russian actioner in a theater next to Batman V Superman is oddly comforting. Hardcore Henry may not start a revolution, but it is a breathe of fresh air in an otherwise stagnant genre.
