Who’s in it?
Sharlto Copley, Haley Bennett, Tim Roth and features YOU as Henry.
Why should I watch it?
+ First ever movie in a first person perspective
+ Shot using GoPro cameras
+ Hardcore Henry lives up to his name, action is non-stop
+ Fast-paced and extremely violent fights with some insane stunts
+ Closes thing people will get to being able to parkour
+ Great music to go along with the action
+ Sharlto Copley as Jimmy was probably the best thing about this movie
+ Gives an awesome performance and shows off his range
+ Has more characters than your average tweet
+ And provides plenty of funny moments
+ Ending fight scene that was bloodier than Carrie’s prom dress
+ Has fun with subtitles
+ Very cool opening scene
+ The best video game movie that isn’t based on a video game franchise
+ Novelty is something you have to experience
Why shouldn’t I watch it?
– One scene where the CGI looks like it really did came off a video game… On a PS2
– Don’t really know what the fucks going on when the camera moves too quick or he’s fighting someone up close
– If you don’t like watching someone else play video games
– Seriously though, I don’t get how people love watching YouTubers play games
Yes, the movie has a weak story and leaves some stuff left unexplained but the action makes it hard for you to care about that stuff. It’s like playing paintball and asking someone to give you a backstory and a motive to shoot the other team. You just go out there, enjoy yourself and ask questions later. Gotta admit though, it’s probably mostly aimed at a young male demographic.
