The new trailer for Hardcore shows us what could be one of two things: a game-changing action spectacle, or a nauseating video-game ripoff. The ultra-violent sci-fi action flick is told entirely from the first-person point of view of its protagonist. If anything, it looks like a non-stop thrill ride.
Here is the trailer:
Here is the official synopsis:
HARDCORE is a modern, action Sci-Fi story about HENRY, a newly resurrected cyborg who must save his wife/creator ESTELLE (Haley Bennet) from the clutches of a psychotic tyrant with telekinetic powers, AKAN (Danila Kozlovsky), and his army of mercenaries. Fighting alongside Henry is JIMMY (Sharlto Copley), who is Henry’s only hope to make it through the day. Hardcore takes place over the course of one day, in Moscow, Russia and it’s all shot in the same style as writer-director Ilya Naishuller’s mega popular short film “BAD MOTHERF–KER.”
While it looks cool, Hardcore could certainly be difficult to stomach for 90 or so minutes. What do you think?
