Hardcore Henry

The good: Its influences are clear- Sin City, Pulp Fiction, Crank, Kill Bill, Total Recall, Full Metal Yakuza, The Matrix Reloaded (or maybe Revolutions?). It plays like a non-stop highlights reel of my favorite action from the past 20 years. It held me fast in front of the TV and I had a great time. Except...

The bad: Some of the sets look kinda cheap, the scene changes don't convince, the non-Sharlto Copley acting is bad, and we get some pretty gross moments of misogyny, ableism, and homophobia. Worst of all, this is probably the favorite movie of all those Gamergate terrorist fuckheads, and that fucking sucks.
