After a slow week of new movies coming out last time around – studios fearing the second week behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, things pick back up this week in the film world. Get ready for Hardcore Henry, The Boss, and Before I Wake.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.
Hardcore Henry
Rotten Watch Prediction
Quite possibly my favorite part of the description of Hardcore Henry is in the R-rating tag, where the film is described as having "... non-stop bloody brutal violence and mayhem, language throughout, sexual content/nudity and drug use." I don’t know if that’s from the MPAA ratings guide, but man it had me cracking up. The "non-stop" piece is the real telling sign for the flick, which appears a total tour-de-force of action right from the get go. Basically, it’s first person shooter style, seeing everything from the eyes of the titular Henry. Dude wakes up in some lab with his wife, gets superhuman prosthetics put on and it’s go time.

If not for the early reviews, I would have been a little worried about the jarring effects of seeing the whole flick from Hardcore Henry’s point of view. But after a few festival screenings, critics have shown love for what they’ve seen, and the movie is sitting at 89% on the Tomatometer with 20 reviews. Director Ilya Niashuller’s first directorial work looks like it knocks it out of the park and may create a new run of similarly shot movies.
