CGI is heavy and possibly overused but the energy of this thing is palpable. Like a caged dog anxiously awaiting release, Hardcore Henry takes off running at full speed rarely stopping for a moment to catch its breath. This is also probably the goriest, most violent action thriller to hit multiplexes since The Raid 2 which it has a lot in common with in terms of rapid fire toe to toe combat battles. Limbs are torn from bodies, heads are blown off or ripped apart, bones are broken in all directions and there's even a scene where someone's brains are blown into the camera lens, obscuring the image with red flesh and blood. Without a doubt, this is the hardest R rated movie in terms of extreme violence to come along in a great while.
