    Hardcore (the world's first POV action movie)

    Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, The Darkest Hour, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) is producing what's said to be the "world's first POV action movie" with director Ilya Naishuller at the helm. Some of you may remember him as the director of the music video short for Biting Elbows (short seen below). "We have wild action, we have lots of stunts that haven’t been done before, and we have a strong story," said Naishuller. You can expect the look and style of the short to be the same for the feature film, which is being shot with a GoPro camera.

    Titled Hardcore and starring Sharlto Copley (District 9) the story is centered on a cyborg created at a secret Moscow laboratory who is trying to find a girl he was in love with in his previous life. "In line with the title, this will be a very hardcore film, R-rated. It’s going to be an absolutely male film," Naishuller added.

    Actor Sharlto Copley was quoted saying: "I saw [Naishuller’s video], and it was amazing, it was a very different approach to action. He’s almost reinventing the action genre for the new generation. We work on a very small budget, but it gives us a level of freedom to try things and to experiment."

    There's no doubt the music video is amazing, but whether we can watch a full length feature in that format remains to be seen. I even said it myself after initially watching the video that I don't think I could take a full movie like that, but we'll see. So far I dig the casting and it has the right people behind it, so it may actually work out. I can only hope there's a shit ton of parkour because that's what really stood out for me in the video.

    Hearing hardcore and POV, an action movie isn't the first thing I think about.

    It sounds like you get to watch a friend play an FPS for 90 minutes, with no say what the character does. Zzzzzz.

    Hardcore (POV action film)

    From the guys that did that POV "Bad Motherfucker" music video comes Hardcore--a new POV (point of view) action movie.



    Looks like it could be fun. In my original thread for the music video I mentioned that I didn't think I'd be able to watch a full movie like this in POV, but after watching Maniac and seeing this trailer, it could work.

    Here's a clip



    And here's the music video

    The screener for this actually had "Hardcore Henry" in the bottom right corner the whole time, I guess that's the name for the movie now? (OK, edit...I see Fright already mentioned that now).

    This is a movie made for action spectacle first and foremost. The big elephant in the room is the POV aspect...if it doesn't annoy you or make you sick with vertigo I don't see how anyone (especially in these forums) will not find this flick awesome and badass. The action is non-stop and the gore is splashed across the screen in buckets. To find out who "you" are is interesting at first but takes a back seat to the action and the mindset of how will the movie top what you just witnessed. Guess what, it always does.

    Insanely great, badass flick!

    The POV took a little bit to get used to, but after 20-or-so minutes I didn't really notice it. The stunts and action were amazing while the story was alright. I enjoyed it overall though 7/10 from me
