Hardcore Henry was shot almost entirely on the GoPro Hero 3 camera, using a specially-built rig worn like a mask. The concept for the film came from the short videos "The Stampede" and "Bad Motherfucker" which Naishuller had directed and which were also shot on a GoPro from the first person perspective.
Hardcore Henry is a first person action film in which the audience sees everything through the eyes of Henry, a man resurrected from the brink of death as a cybernetic super-soldier who remembers nothing about his past. He is trying to save his wife Estelle, who has been kidnapped by Akan, a powerful warlord with a plan for bio-engineering soldiers. In the unfamiliar city of Moscow, Henry tries to avoid being killed while discovering the truth behind his identity.
