Hobo with a Shotgun is directed by Jason Eisener and written by John Davies. It stars Rutger Hauer, Brian Downey, Gregory Smith, Molly Dunsworth, Robb Wells and Nick Bateman. Music is by Alexander Rosborough and cinematography by Karim Hussain.

A homeless hobo (Hauer) hitches a freight train lift into Hope Town and finds a city imploding with corruption, violence, drugs and sexual deviance. Initially trying to keep out of the way and get on with his meagre existence, the hobo finally cracks and decides he can no longer sit back and watch such lawlessness. Helping himself to a shotgun from the local pawn shop, hobo goes on a one man killing crusade.

Born out of a trailer that accompanied the original full release of Rodriguez/Tarrantino's Grindhouse venture, Hobo with a Shotgun is horror exploitation made with abundant glee. Blending Death Wish like vigilantism with 70s and 80s styled schlock, Jason Eisener has crafted an utterly tasteless, yet wonderfully entertaining, piece of cinema. Violence is broad and completely bloody, as heads are exploded, bodies punctured and characters slotted in a series of increasingly strange ways, while the characters that inhabit Hope Town are downright nasty and equally weird. From bully boy Tom Cruise homage brother bastards Ivan & Slick, to a paedophile Santa Claus, and on to The Plague-two metal suited fetish killers sent to take out the hobo-it's bizarreville for sure.

It's all driven by a great turn from Hauer, who manages to play it with raw and subtle emotion, even as the rage takes control of him and he deals death as surely as he delivers a memorable line.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 7 Mar 2012
Format: DVD
A bit of a fan of a good old Grindhouse flick, and appreciative of the recent revival and homages to the genre, I was looking forward to this offering which has received so much praise. I have to confess to being somewhat disappointed.

The film starts off well with a slightly oversaturated technicolour look that instantly evokes the seventies. We see Rutger Hauer's hobo bumming a ride on a train, in scenes reminiscent of `Emperor of the North'. It's a promising start, and shows both flair and a desire to pay due homage to films that inspired it. Then when the hobo of the title reaches town it all starts to go off the rails. The director presents us with gory obscenity after gory obscenity. Done in a comic book style with bucketloads of blood and other bits and pieces, it's the type of gore fest that Sam Raimi might have put into an Evil Dead film. But unlike other films of the ilk, much of the time there seems to be no reason for the violence. It's just happening, it's not there to further the plot. OK, if it's well done this is forgivable, but here it isn't even particularly well done. It's all rather sub - Uwe Boll, with geysers of blood which should send the bleeder flying from the recoil and would knock down any bystanders like a water cannon. Even worse, the film loses its identity somewhat and does not stay consistent with its own mythos. It suddenly mixes in supernatural elements, and computer game rip offs. When the two robots started battling a giant squid for no apparent reason I started to give up on trying to follow what was going on.

The film is saved somewhat by a fine central performance from Hauer.

With lines like "I want to cut off my c**k and rub it against your your t*****s" you know you are in for a cult classic! It is gloriously violent and hilarious with a rough looking Rutger Hauer running around with a shotgun dispatching justice on corrupt cops and crooks alike. Anyone who has watched the death wish franchise or Seagal films will recognise all the familiar tropes and cliches here that is wrapped around a sick sense of humour and ultraviolence. Check out the decapitation and head splattering scenes!

Of course this is not a film to be taken too seriously. It is essentially a revenge comedy with a splattering of blood but if you grew up on a diet of classic 80s movies like Rambo, Die hard and Mad max than you will probably love this B movie pastiche. It is certainly not for the faint hearted!

I genuinely wanted to like Hobo with a Shotgun. Rutger Hauer has had a patchy film career, highlights include Bladerunner, the Osterman Weekend and the Hitcher. Hobo is not a highlight, 'The so bad its good' qualifier just doesn't work with this, the film lacked any humor or any original ideas. Mutilating or murdering without humor -see Fargo, Pulp fiction,or even 'Dusk til Dawn'- just doesn't work in this type of film, it becomes, pointless, a shock tactic.

It does exactly as it says on the tin -the acting was minimalist but the gore and action was right up there
