So, last night I watched Hardcore Henry, and while it might not be a game movie per se, it was really damn close to it, or as least I thought so.
The whole story, point of view, how it plays out, and all the random action scenes was like it were taken directly out of a random action game and I have to say that I enjoyed it for what it was. It worked well for a movie.
The main guy, Henry, suffers from memory loss after being resurrected and has no voice because he never get a voice modulator installed and doesn’t speak through the entire movie, the others just does it for him. As the story progresses, he gains more skills and techniques as if he were leveling up throughout the movie. In the end, you realize that he’s not another human that has been caught up in a random story, he’s a bio-engineered soldier with no memory.
As I watched it, I thought of games like Mass Effect 2, Bio Shock: Infinite, Deus Ex and Dishonored, and it was all really well put together.
Visually, this movie is beautifully made with good and realistic effects. I read somewhere that it was sponsored on Indiegogo and I have to say, good work.
If you haven’t watched this movie yet, I suggest that you do because it is a really entertaining movie.
