Watch the Super-Violent Hardcore Henry Trailer and Try Not to Get Motion Sickness

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Hardcore Henry is either going to be the most awesome film of all time, or it’s going to make you puke with its POV shaky-cam action. Or both. Basically it’s like a whole movie shot by a cyborg wearing a GoPro. Can you stand it?

The above trailer gives a pretty good sense of what this movie is about. Basically, you’re Henry, a guy who’s lost an arm and a leg—but you get new cybernetic attachments. Then you abseil out of the hospital because your wife has been kidnapped, and you have to go find her. The main point of all this is just to have insane super-violence that feels up close and personal, which sounds just fantastic. I’m in. As long as I don’t need too much Dramamine.

I know I kvetched about Pandemic for having boring POV zombie-killing action—but this movie seems much faster paced, and approximately 1000 percent less taking itself seriously.

Meh. When I watch a movie and play a first-person shooter I’m looking for two very different experiences. I want to identify with the characters in a movie and see how they interact with each other; how am I supposed to do that when one’s a mute pair of arms and legs?
