Hardcore Henry

Synopsis: Hardcore Henry is an action film told from a first person perspective: You remember nothing. Mainly because you've just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you 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. You're also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy. He may be on your side, but you aren't sure. If you can survive the insanity, and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Good luck, Henry. You're likely going to need it...

(Man) Hey!

You...

...little...

...pussy.

(Estelle) Hello, Henry.

Oh.

You can't speak,

but that's normal.

Well, it isn't normal, but

it's only temporary, okay?

Do you remember

how you got here?

That's fine.

That's normal, too.

Henry, wait.

Wait.

We'll get there.

Scan.

(Beeping)

(Scanner) Sensory

processor activated.

(Estelle) Relax, okay?

(Scanner) Scanning.

Video link confirmed.

- Up.

This next part might hurt.

Maybe quite a lot.

But it won't last

long, I promise.

Almost there.

Welder.

You can do it.

Wonderful, Henry.

Squeeze.

Harder.

Ah!

(Laughs)

Cool, right?

Integument?

Please don't move your hand.

You probably don't recall.

You were never a

big fan of my work.

Maybe this will

change your mind.

Right?

Memory's a funny thing.

I'm an expert and I don't know

if you'll ever get yours back.

You don't remember me

at all, do you, Henry?

My name is Estelle.

You and I were...

we still are...

...husband and wife.

I love you, Henry.

I can't wait to hear you say it.

(Loud music)

(Turns music off)

(Robbie) Henry.

(Estelle) His memories are

still catching up with him.

Oh, Jesus.

I'm Robbie.

The sorcerer of sound.

You are gonna love this.

Because, sir...

you're gonna get to

pick your own voice.

(Computer As Elvis) Thank you.

Thank you very much.

(Computer As Louis Armstrong)

Hello, Henry.

Robbie.

- Oh, come on, they're options.

What white guy wouldn't wanna

sound like Louis Armstrong?

Just one more. Quick.

(Computer As Darth Vader)

Luke, I am your father.

Robert, enough.

Sorry, Mom.

How about we

use Henry's voice?

Yeah, whatever you say.

You're the boss. Boring.

(Computer) Security breach,

level four.

(Timothy) Is this a drill?

- What is this?

(Computer) Level four.

- Lock the door.

- It's probably a mistake.

Estelle, call the base.

Security breach, level four.

(Explosion)

(Shouting)

(Gun shots)

Oh, no.

(Akan) Yes.

Spasiba.

Get up.

Henry, right?

- Please, don't.

- Shut up.

How do you like the new you?

Did I interrupt the procedure?

Can Henry not talk yet?

(Timothy) No, he can't. No.

Don't look at me

like that, Henry.

Your girlfriend here-

might have rebuilt you,

but I gave her the raw

materials to work with.

And I mean really,

really raw materials.

(Estelle whimpering)

- What's your name?

- Timothy.

Nice to meet you, Timothy.

Did you see Henry when Estelle

brought his remains here?

Yeah.

Would you please be so kind to

describe them to better Henry's

understanding of how

good he looks now?

Sure. His arm was

shot off below the...

below the elbow and the...

the leg shot off below the knee.

And there was a

football-sized dent...

Did you happen

to see his head?

- Yes.

- Do tell.

Um, the skull was dented in

and there was this, um...

his eyes were missing and, um,

the bottom half of his jaw was

shred to pieces.

Just about right.

I'm bleeding, too.

That was a little strenuous.

(Whispers) Stay close.

(Explosion)

(Estelle) Henry! Hurry up!

Close it.

Henry, come on!

Henry, try to keep up!

(Voices in Russian)

Shh. Come on.

Kick it in.

Come on.

If Akan gets ahold of my

work, men like these will be

brought back from the dead

to form his army.

Go!

Henry, no!

Henry!

Take my hand!

(Computer) Escape pod initiated.

(Estelle) There are two pods.

(Marty) One.

- Marty?

- Sorry. The man's

clearly gone insane.

Marty, no!

Henry.

It's yours. Get in.

(Akan) Estelle!

Get in! Get in!

(Computer) Escape pod initiated.

(Computer) Altitude...

The chute! The chute!

Pull the chute!

It's going too fast!
