If action movies these days leave you feeling indifferent, then prepare to get a jolt from the new trailer for first person action movie Hardcore Henry. The film is due for release 8 April 2016 after it was successfully financed via Indiegogo back in 2014 where it raised $250,000. It had its world premiere at TIFF last year where distribution rights were bought by STX Entertainment for $10 million. It has been renamed to Hardcore Henry after initially just being called Hardcore and, well, it looks quite something.

Directed by Russian filmmaker Ilya Naishuller it apes the POV of a first person shooter video game, essentially putting the audience in on the action by having them play the protagonist—or, at least, experience the narrative through his eyes.

It follows a guy called Henry who awakes in a lab to find he’s been brought back from the dead, RoboCop style, as a human-machine hybrid. His wife is there and tells him his name, then armed men come in and take her.

The rest of the film is spent in POV over-the-top action as Henry tries to rescue his wife from these bad guys and battles a crazy villain played by Danila Kozlovsk who wants to destroy the planet.

Much like the visuals mimic a video game, so too does the ludicrous plot and it looks like it’s not going to pretend to be anything other than pure, ridiculous fun.

So depending on your point of view you’re probably either going to love it or hate it. For my money it looks fantastic, definitely worth checking out.

Full Synopsis below:

Strap in. HARDCORE HENRY is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time: 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 (Danila Kozlovsky); 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 (Sharlto Copley). 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…
