In a journey to earn his way out of poverty, a homeless man pulls into a city of urban chaos, where crime prevails and the city’s crime boss reigns with violent and bloody malice. Seeing this urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops and abused prostitutes, the Hobo soon abandons his plans and turns vigilante in order to deliver justice to this city of filth the only way he knows how--with a 20-gauge shotgun. Mayhem ensues as he tries to clean up the streets and make the city a better place for future generations. However with the city’s evil crime boss Drake standing in his way, will the Hobo’s own brand of street justice prevail?

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.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
Gory, gratuitous, manic fun, Hobo With a Shotgun is a grindhouse b-movie with plenty of guts to show. Rutger Haur hasn't had this much fun for years. Playing the part of the travelling hobo he arrives in a town run by a nefarious gang who have no limits when it comes to dishing out hard punishments.

Deciding something must be done he takes up arms with his shotgun and single handedly takes on the gang. The action is brutal and OTT. Nothing is shied away from. Heads leave their bodies, people are crushed and dismembered. Anything goes.

This isn't for the faint hearted and will offend a lot of people. However that would be missing the point. This is pure pastiche. Unabashed craziness harking back to the grubby grindhouse of he 70's. in short it is not to be taken seriously.

Cheesy and fun.

It's very clear that Jason Eisener the director is a very sentimental guy. Here he is really wearing his sleeve on his heart or his heart on his sleeve, I forget sorry.

It's a throwback to the exploitation over the top violence that Eisener was clearly brought up watching.
Hobo is a good movie, quite shocking in some scenes and very shoot em up loud.
It's like watching an adult version of the old Batman TV series.
And it's very dark and glum which fits perfectly with the atmosphere. One would be forgiven for thinking that Eusener grew up in a dodgy east end estate the way he has shot this film.

And credit to Hauer for accepting the role. What other 70 year old would play a hobo.... with a shotgun.
Hauer is without doubt the coolest grandaddy of all time.

Oh and the DVD cover is wicked!
