Welcome to 'HARDCORE' the world's first ever action POV feature film.Get ready to experience a SCI-Fi adventure film shot from the first person perspective.You will be seeing 'Henry' a newly resurrected cyborg who must save his wife(Haley Bennet) who also happens to be 'SURPRISE SURPRISE' his creator.He must save her from the clutches of a evil,maniac,psychotic tyrant who has the power of telekinetic at his disposal,AKAN (Danila Kozlovsky) and his army of ragged band of mercenaries.Fighting alongside HENRY is JIMMY (Sharlto Copley) who is probably Henry's only hope to make it through the day.The movie takes place over the course of one day in Moscow,Russia.This is the first full length feature film shot almost entirely on a GoPro,of course it is not your normal GoPro that you get in the market rather it is a GoPro mounted on a custom designed camera rig that allows for a very natural and immensely personal experience.I personally feel very confident about how this movie is going to perform all though it is a limited release because it will literally put you in the place of the protagonist ,and you become him as the movie progresses.
Directed by IIya Naishuller,the movie is still in the making.The movie has already completed principal photography and has been edited so you can check out a sample of this action packed movie down below
