I ranted about this movie project late last year when they were running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to back the film. In case you missed it, the entire movie was shot entirely from a first-person view. I believe this is the first time ever that anyone has done a full length movie in first-person, and it stars Sharlto Copley.
The movie is finally complete, and was shown over the weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival. I’m just wondering when will the rest of us get to watch it. Judging from the trailer above, it looks mighty promising!
Here’s the story that sets the scene for the 1.5hr long movie:
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 and congratulations, you’re now a cyborg. 5 minutes later, 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 just a psychotic megalomaniac with telekinetic powers, and a never-ending army of mercenaries. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, Russia and everyone wants you dead. Everyone, except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He might be on your side. Good luck Henry. You’re very much likely to need it.
