When I first watched this I thought man, that guy looks just like Sharlto Copley… because it is him. I’m slightly annoyed I never finished my script as I had a horror movie with a similar concept. Oh well, Hardcore is the first action movie to be seen completely from a First Person perspective and has just started an Indiegogo campaign.
About the film from the Facebook Page: You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife. She tells you that your name is Henry and congratulations, you’re now a cyborg.
5 minutes later, your wife has been kidnapped and you should probably go get her back.
Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky), he’s just a psychotic megalomaniac with telekinetic powers, and a never-ending army of mercenaries. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, Russia and everyone wants you dead. Everyone, except for a mysterious, British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He might be on your side. Good luck Henry. You’re very much likely to need it.
Oh, did I tell you that your battery is quickly running out?
