Sharlto Copley called this film as the most challenging of his acting career.

Crowdfunding was used to get additional funds during post-production.

The film premiered as "Hardcore" at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on September 12, 2015. The film became one of the most popular movies at the festival, and led to a bidding war between Lionsgate, Universal, and STX Entertainment. Ultimately, STX acquired worldwide rights to "Hardcore", including a wide release commitment, for $10 million, becoming the studio's first festival acquisition. It was retitled "Hardcore Henry" for its domestic release.

According to Sharlto Copley the stuntmen for this film were so impressive, that the total injuries of the cast and crew were only 5 stitches and 1 chipped tooth.

Darya Charusha, who plays a dominatrix biker, is also the film's composer.

Before this film, writer and director Ilya Naishuller made several music videos for his Russian indie rock band "Biting Elbows". The videos were shot in the same style: Fast paced, first person perspective action videos.

BigThink.com called the director "the next Quentin Tarantino".

Feature film debut of director Ilya Naishuller.

The video game "Payday 2" had a cross-promotion before the movie's release. It came with heists relating to the film's plot, along with a new playable character and new weapons.

The scene where Henry slides down an escalator and knocks a woman violently to the ground wasn't planned. An extra missed her mark and was standing in the wrong area, resulting in her being knocked over. After the take she reportedly popped up and asked if they'd gotten the shot.

When asked which stunts were most difficult to film, Sharlto Copley cited elbowing a man out of a moving vehicle while driving and director Ilya Naishuller described the escalator scene. That was the last sequence shot in a late production reshoot, after Naishuller concluded that the shot was too dull and needed "something extra".
