“Hardcore Henry” is a front-row type of film. It should be seen and experienced in a theater.

However, no matter where you sit or how you see it, you will still be Henry, or at least under the illusion that you’re him.

“Hardcore Henry” is the first of its kind: a film completely shot with a Go-Pro — dozens of the cameras, actually — making it filmed 100 percent from the protagonist’s point of view. So, if you would like to be dropped from a freeway overpass, want to know what it feels like to shoot at someone from the back of an incredibly fast-moving motorcycle or fall from a helicopter all while eating popcorn and sipping a beer, this is the film for you.
