He remembers nothing. Mainly because he's just been brought back from the dead by his wife. She tells him that his name is Henry. Five minutes later, he's being shot at, his wife has been kidnapped, and he should probably go get her back. Who's got her? His name's Akan; he's a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination. Henry's also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow and everyone wants him dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy.

Interesting concept. Not much plot. Sharlto Copley does a great job fulfilling something of multiple roles. Similar to a John Wick movie in terms of content: action with guns. The action is well-executed, including a few impressive sequences with apparently little or no cuts/editing.

Has a sort "Crank" vibes to it (suggest you actually watch that film if you haven't already to understand what I mean), non-stop gore and violence, some antagonist who uses the force, sexual innuendos/nudity and little to no plotline.

Got this because it looked like a FP game type movie and I enjoy FP video games so I thought it would be pretty good, I was pretty much kinda wrong.

A+ for effort and the lovely queen song played near the end tho

also if you get some type of motion sickness very easily, I suggest not watching this.

If you are into F P S games or action flics then you will like this.

It's funny - they keep trying to say that it's so "revolutionary", and "it's never been done before", etc. Well, it's been done in about ten thousand video games, and the reason that nobody's actually done a movie out of it? This movie is the reason. It sucks. It's kinda fun for about 2 minutes, then the schtick gets old and you just want to watch another movie. You'll be lucky if you can finish this stinker. It's pretty much dead on arrival.

My only comment when it was over - "What was that?" Cool first person perspective, crazy non-stop action, and weird plot. Well, kind of a plot. They didn't bother explaining much, but I'm assuming at least the writer knew the plot. Absolutely no explanation why the real world setting included a boss bad guy who was stronger with the Force than Darth Vader, though.

Fast moving, realistic blood and guts from an unusual visual perspective. Great for hyped-up caffeine-addled gamers.

This movie feels like watching a very violent and bloody video game. Very interesting concept, but definitely has a pretty niche audience.

Filmed in the first person perspective, extremely violent and somewhat gory. This movie is not for everyone. Every aspect of this movie feels like a video game, and the story moves like the viewer is playing a first person perspective shooter (FPS). It begins with a short introduction, then moves along with Harry fighting a precession of bad guys, then a tougher "boss" character, before additional story elements are given and the setting changes to a new "level". It reminds me of the Scott Pilgrim vs The World movie in that sense. Despite the fact that the movie was shot and written to be a live action video game, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to fans of FPS games. I enjoyed this movie because of its impressive action sequences. The game perspective is more of a novelty. Action junkies will enjoy this movie most of all.

Sexual Content: sexual innuendos here and there along with a stripclub scene that lasts about 5 to 10 minutes I believe

From the deleted scene - “Sniper Jimmy’s Elevator Joke.” Not sure why it was left out:
Little Johnny goes to his dad and says, "Daddy, what's the difference between theoretical and practical?" Daddy says "Go ask your mom if she had sex with a stranger for a million £." Johnny says "Momma, would you have sex with a stranger for a million £?" Momma says "Yes. Suppose I would. Johnny says "Daddy, Momma said 'yes'." Daddy goes "Well, you see, son. Theoretically, I'm a millionaire. Practically, I'm living in a house with a whore."

A few quotes in IMDb as these two:
Akan: Each year one hundred thousand baseball bats are sold in Russia, and at most 50 baseballs. Gives an idea for great Russian pastime.

Jimmy: Like my father always said, a grenade a day keeps the enemy at bay.
