First-person or POV films are an interesting concept. Most dislike the found-footage shaky cam approach, so it makes me wonder how people will accept or reject a film that’s entirely from an actual persons point of view.
I think the concept sounds like it could work, depending on the inventive filmmaking techniques used and if the filmmaker can manage to make the method of filming work versus shooting it traditionally.
Which is why action flicks generally seem like a better idea for the experimental format.
Enter Hardcore Henry, starring Sharlto Copley.
The trailer sort of gives off Gamer vibes, which I totally dug. But can the filmmakers behind this one show as much energy and creativity as Crank‘s Neveldine/Taylor?
