Take a first person shooter like Call of Duty or Half-Life and mix them up with a movie like Crank or The Transporter and you’ve got yourself something similar to what you’ll see in the first trailer for Hardcore.
The film stars Sharlto Copley (Elysium and District 9) and is about a man who is brought back to life as a cyborg by his wife. She is then kidnapped and the cyborg sets off to rescue her deep in the seedy underworld of mother Russia.
The film is shot entirely from the perspective of the hero and has been getting a lot of buzz – not all of which is great. This trailer makes a lot of bold claims (like changing everything) and a lot of “evers”, but I think it has potential to be really fun. I could see the POV angle getting kind of annoying but I’d still give it a shot, I mean, I want to be changed… I need a change.
