    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    In the home of Scum Town, crime is so bad a man could kidnap a boy as he's screaming from the back of the seat and nobody would raise a brow. One homeless hobo pushed to the brink has had enough. With a shotgun in hand, the eponymous hero becomes the new headline of the town: "HOBO STOPS BEGGING, DEMANDS CHANGE" Filled with stylistic violence, homages to retro arcade games, and a gritty neo-noir vibe reminiscent of Blade Runner (which…

    "You and me are going on a car ride to hell. You're riding shotgun!"

    Yes, this movie is as awesome as it sounds from the title. I instantly fell in love with the movie as soon as I pushed play. It's over the top violence and vulgarity mixed well with the intentional cheese factor of the story-line and the characters. Not to mention the amazing soundtrack!

    This really does feel padded, as you'd expect from a film fleshed out from a fake trailer I guess, BUT the gore is ridiculous, there are a few great bits of dialogue, Rutger Hauer manages to get way more grizzled emotion into his role than it even remotely deserves, Molly "Jim Lahey's daughter" Dunsworth is a total badass and, most importantly of all, it has that weird Canadian sweetness to it... in between the beheadings and skull smashing, I mean.…

    I sincerely wanted to like this movie based on its title and trailer alone. In this homage to 70’s violent exploitation flicks that began its life as a fake trailer during the “Grindhouse“ films (like “Machete“), Rutger Hauer is a hobo who comes to a city (called “Scum Town”) that is overrun with crime (and by ‘overrun with crime‘, I mean the criminals rule, the cops are dirty, and all manner of bad stuff happens to your average citizen all…

    Rutger Hauer stars in a self-aware exploitation film that plays homage to its past and is determined to go all the way.

    It is shot beautifully with high contrast and constant lighting that is extremely saturated. Hauer provides a balance to the self-awareness by giving a level of gravity to his performance. The film is paced well with the slower interludes and also features a lot of witty dialogue.

    It is very creative in many of its sequences and the…

    Great movie with a fantastic part for Rutger Hauer.

    Wonderful hommage to B-movies of old. Eisner really captures the right mood with not shooting the movie in a straight forward way. Nowhere neat camera tricks are used, it's not slick, it's not glossy but it's raw and right in youre face imagery. Works really well.

    The beginning where Hobo is arriving by train is already great, accompanied by beautiful music. Makes you think of a spaghetti western where the lone…

    Explosive, violent and slathered in absurdity. Rutger Hauer as the Hobo has stood silently on the street corner for far too long; no more begging for change, he's out to demand it! And what better way to get your point across than with a double barrel shotgun!

    The most plausible of all dystopian films, also the punk thugs reminded me of the raiders in the game series Fallout and that was nice. 10/10
