Jimmy finds and resuscitates Henry, only to be shelled by a tank. After killing the tank crew, fending off a helicopter, and failing to ride a runaway horse, Henry finds another Jimmy—a gruff sniper in a ghillie suit—who leads him to an abandoned hotel, where Jimmy is headquartered in a hidden laboratory. Jimmy and Henry encounter a number of policemen surrounding a girl. They are in the process of forcing her to perform oral sex on one of the cops. Henry kills them all. Here, the original Jimmy—a quadriplegic scientist—reveals his motive for helping Henry: revenge against Akan, who crippled him after his own cyborg super-soldiers failed. He reveals the other Jimmys are dormant clones that he can control, through which he lives a vice-filled life. The clones attack Henry after Jimmy realizes that Henry has been unknowingly broadcasting his location to Akan, with a strike force closing in. Fending off Jimmy, Henry convinces him to help. Henry and the clones of Jimmy—ranging from a punk rocker to a posh WWII Colonel—fight their way out, killing the force by collapsing the laboratory on them.Jimmy and Henry drive to Akan’s headquarters. They fight their way into an elevator, but Jimmy is mortally wounded. Before dying, Jimmy thanks Henry for being the closest thing to a friend he had, and removes a memory blocker, gradually restoring Henry’s memories. Henry fights his way to the highest floor, where he is greeted by Akan, revealing an army of cyborg super-soldiers being fed Henry’s memories. One such soldier fights Henry, followed by the rest of the army, chasing Henry to the roof. Henry wipes out the entire army. Akan arrives and severely wounds Henry. Shortly after, Estelle arrives as well. In reality, Estelle was Akan’s wife, forming an elaborate ruse to field-test Henry and use his memories to manipulate cyborg soldiers into doing anything to “rescue” their “wife”—specifically, terrorist attacks and world domination as Akan’s loyal slaves. The two leave Henry for dead, leaving in a helicopter.Henry blacks out, but is energized by an emerging memory of his father encouraging him to fight back against the childhood bullies seen in the intro. Henry manages to reach Akan, and uses his own cybernetic eyestalk to decapitate Akan. He jumps onto Estelle’s helicopter, presenting her Akan’s head. Estelle demands to know how Henry killed Akan and he writes in a bloody hand-print EZ. Estelle shoots him, but the bullet ricochets off his cybernetic hand and wounds her, leaving her hanging from the helicopter. Estelle pleads with Henry to save her, but Henry slams the door, sending her falling to her death. In a mid-credits scene, an answering machine message from Jimmy is heard, telling Henry there is “one more thing” to do.‘Hardcore Henry (2016)’ is an interesting experiment, an action film told entirely from the first-person perspective. At times, it provides a unique kind of entertainment you won’t find pretty much anywhere else. It’s admirable what the team behind the picture were able to achieve with their limited budget and camera restrictions. Some of the already elaborate stunt work is made even more impressive when you realise that the performer(s) for the eponymous ‘Henry’ couldn’t wear a safety wire due to the 360 degree view required for the camera to seamlessly navigate through the sequences. The video-game feel – which is bolstered by several clichés, such as a silent protagonist and ‘tutorial’ moments -can lead to some frustration as it just seems like you’re watching someone else play when you’d rather take the controls yourself. The outlandish plot and mile-a-minute pacing, along with the constrained camera-view, do get tiresome quickly, too. As such, this as an interesting movie worth a watch once for its surface value, but not much more. Plus, it is likely to cause some motion-sickness if that’s something you suffer from, and maybe even if its something you don’t.
