Once you get past the "first person" point of view (boy it sure can induce nausea), it's a roller coaster ride. The story is no big deal, the script is no big deal but if you just sit back and let yourself enjoy the over-the-top ride, it's fairly good fun. It sort of reminds me a bit of "Crank".
a lot of hate for a good movie, anyone who likes first person shooters will enjoy this fresh take at an action flick
Lots of action but didn't like how it was filmed from Henry's perspective. It actually made me dizzy at some points. I would not recommend this movie
Such a lame movie for wanna bes
Zero stars if I could. Barely made it through the movie without throwing up, and I don't get motion sickness. Absolutely zero storyline and even with a great performance by Sharlto Copley, really not even worth watching. The concept music videos were cool, but it doesn't translate well to a 90 minute flick.
Too amazing to watch this movie:)
Best Great Movie. Different to watch third person view from Go Pro Cams. Excellent Special Effects.
WORST MOVIE IN YEARS. WOULD GIVE IT A MINUS 3 STARS IF I COULD. EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO WATCH. LOTS OF RUSSIAN LANGUAGE AND WORDS ON SCREEN TO INTERPRET. WE LEFT THE MOVIE AND SAW MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN IN ITS PLACE, A 5 STAR MOVIE.
It was a fun movie
Terrible. Camera shaking all the time. Making you nauseous. I would like to give it 0 stars- but the requirement is min 1- that is why is 1.
0-star for nauseating jittery fisheye lens camera work, 1-star for its execution of concept with a camera lacking image stabilisation, cancels out a 5-star realistic style action flick, realistic battle/stunt work/gore. Camera incompetence on par with 1st person jittery faux- run-n-gun vcam Battle L.A. meets faux-1st person-gopro As Above So Below. had to walk out and get a refund ~25 minutes ... nauseous :p Movie seriously needs a redo.
Lots action, little bit of Gore a bit too much of kill shots and resurrection and camera shaking, felt slightly nauseated. Interesting camera lens view.
If they fixed the camera work it might be watchable, the story was alright but really the constant shaking is it necessary? The camera work makes it almost unwatchable.
a little over the top, but this is one of those movies where your popcorn bag better be full when it starts because there's so much happening that if you leave to refill it you'd miss either story or an effect / sequence that was impressive. can't say that about too many shows nowadays
I wanted to love this movie, but after twenty five minutes I was in the bathroom trying not to throw up. POV films could work, but they need to work out the kinks of the shakiness.
Waste of time and money; you never see or hear Henry, lame with no real plot, boring repetitive, inter-colliding scenes, no purpose of brothel scene. We left well before it was over.
Great action scenes in this movie, but I would not recommend this to anyone who gets headaches easily. The constant shaking of the camera made this film a little unbearable.
I enjoyed it. Lots of action. Very well written story. The action scenes are all shot continually. Some people may not like the camera shaking. I do think that it has a very interesting storyline. Some gore and crazy scenes ensue. Groundbreaking.
The whole movie shot in first person perspective. Seriously!! No thankx!
