Hardcore Henry (also known simply as Hardcore) is a 2015 Russian-American science fiction action film. As the film begins, Henry (the audience) recalls being bullied as a child before waking up in a tank of water inside a laboratory on an airship missing his left arm and left leg. A scientist, Estelle (Haley Bennett), replaces his missing limbs with cybernetic ones and reminds Henry that she is his wife and that he has amnesia after waking up from a horrible accident. Just as Henry begins to get his bearings, a group of mercenaries led by the telekinetic Akan (Danila Kozlovsky) arrive and kill the other scientists, intending to abduct Henry. Estelle leads Henry to an escape pod built for one, but he pulls her into the pod with him before it launches. The pod lands in the middle of a Moscow highway, and more mercenaries abduct Estelle and waylay Henry.
