One minute, you’re dead. The next, your fetching blonde wife (who happens to be the lovely Haley Bennett) has resuscitated you. She then hits you with the whammy: while you were out, she got a bit tinker-happy in efforts to raise you from the dead and might have made a fully functional cyborg out of the meat-sack that was once your body.
Happens to us all the time. Thursdays. We could never get the hang of Thursdays. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to HARDCORE, the world’s very first full-length action feature to be shot entirely from the lead character’s first-person perspective.
The fellow who’s just been upgraded from “Dead” to “Holy shit, he’s alive” is named Henry. His/your day is about to somehow get worse. In about five minutes, a pants-on-head crazy telekinetic megalomaniac named Akan (Danila Kozlovsky) and one very merry band of armed henchmen have kidnapped the pretty little necromancer. You have a curious British fellow named Jimmy (Sharlto Copley) seemingly by your side to help, but it would seem everybody in Moscow wants to make some sport of making sure you remain room-temperature and immobile this time.
Considering your previous agenda consisted of a full day of “Be dead”, not like you have something else planned.
