Cyborgs, An Evil Tyrant, And Insane Violence.
Hardcore is a crazy new ultra-violent sci-fi action film with an interesting POV style shooting. It looks just like a live-action video game, and apparently makes some great references along the way.
As soon as I viewed the trailer I knew that Hardcore was based on a short First Person Shooter action video that took YouTube by storm. I know all of you have seen it, but here it is anyway’s – Biting Elbows: Bad Motherfucker
Hardcore stars, Sharlto Copley, Haley Bennett, Danila Kozlovsky and was directed by Ilya Naishuller.
The film recently had its première at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The reviews are stating that this new POV style action movie is going to be the next big thing. I am seriously looking forward to this one!
