    Whoever wrote the script was clearly high on cocaine, and the movie really resembles a video game. I mean, there's an escort mission, a turret level and a boss battle. The ending was quite satisfying and the moments of humor were welcome, also. A damn good spectacle. So, is Henry human? Is humanity defined by memory and not flesh and bone, as Naishuller comments?

    The stunt people should be recognized as gods among men. Such good fun although I started becoming uninterested during the rooftop sequence but then the Queen-sized adrenaline boost kicked in and I was right back in it and then it was over. 3 years 9 months ago

    Ok, this one really took me by suprise! Now, dispite some of the harsh backlash from most critics, I can honestly tell that 'Hardcore Henry' is one of the most fun and impressive genre-movies of the year!

    When I heard that the hole film was in first-person, my first reaction was that it was going to be nothing more than a cheep gimmick, since the last time it was done was in 'Doom' from 2005. And we all know how horrible that was! But here it's a kind of a gimmick that's done right and used to it's full potential to create a non-stop crazy, violent and fun extravaganza of an experience.

    Under the surface of all the mayhem and craziness, there's also a pretty cool and engaging sci-fi story with some interesting ideas, which I will not give away any details about, other than that they were much more than I acturlly expected from a film like this.

    Now, will it go down in history as an action-classic? Probably not, nor is it a perfect film by any means. But it's a film that knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything more for that matter.

    Dispite what I have just said, 'Hardcore Henry' is not a film that I will recommend to every person on the planet, but if you're just looking for an action-film that is crazy, over the top and a little different than most action films these days, then don't miss this one!

    The small audience I saw this with where clapping at the end, which can only be a sign that they(me included) Where having a blast! And that the film delivered the goods. :)
