Hardcore Henry (2015)
This movie is bonkers, on all levels. I bough it for the bass, stayed for the insane action. This movie was brought up a handful of times in the old bass thread, with mixed reviews, and overall it didn't seem to draw much interest, probably due to it's filming style. I didn't have any issue following the action, even with subtitles, but I know some have issue with the POV style. But the action, man! This movie is a must-see for any action junkie. It's crazy. But you're here for the bass, right?
in the BEQ thread, recently brought back some attention to the movie, putting it in the category of bass monsters. And he's not wrong, because it delivers bass in spades, both it quantity an variety. For a 5.1 mix, this audio track is exceptional, and constantly makes use of all channels, with great directionality and precision. You're IN the movie practically at all times thanks to the immersive audio. This is great stuff!
If the action and audio are not enough for you, the film is also hilarious. It's very violent for sure, but it also has a very quirky sense of humor. I knew Sharlto Copley from other movies, but this one made me a fan of him. He's terrific in here. The storyline is absolutely crazy, but also incredibly fun. As you can tell, I enjoyed this movie A LOT. There's a marketing blurb in the cover that puts this movie in the same category as Mad Max: Fury Road
. They're completely different movies, but the action in both is so crazy and exciting that guarantees multiple viewings. In that sense, they do belong in the same category, great audio included.
Like I said, the POV filming style could be a deal breaker for some, if you can't get into it. I find the fast editing of the Bourne movies, the Taken movies or some Resident Evil ones a lot more distracting and hard to follow than Hardcore Henry
, but I don't know. I can only give this movie my highest recommendation. It's just so much fun.
