    Hobo with a Shotgun fails at being anything better than a simple homage to 80's exploitation flicks, which weirdly is a rather overdone and unoriginal genre.

    It's hard to complain about things like the shocking acting (except Hauer), gratuitous violence and dumb plot and dialogue because it was probably exactly what they were going for.

    The film did step over the line at times and became something it didn't have to be by trying too hard to be ultra edgy…

    I hate irony and nostalgia. Hobo is one or the other or both, but it's not the movie's fault I didn't like it more.

    Some cult movie goodness full of hilarious and ridiculous situations as a Hobo brings justice to the exploited and victimized citizens of a city. His method if one could not ascertain it from the title is from the barrel of his shotgun. Very enjoyable but B quality without a doubt.

    love hauer, he's a gem of an actor. but this movie is a pile of mean-spirited, "edgy" dogshit. terrible writing. hate the aesthetics. hate whatever filter of influences Eisener is cribbing. the movie *looks* good, but has little else worth seeing.

    Mercifully, it's less than 1.5hr long.

    They should have just left it as a fake trailer from Grindhouse. If it was witty, or funny, or cohesive maybe it would have been okay, but as it is, it's just an excuse to be goofy and gory.

    Though, it did provide a lot of Canadians with jobs, so that's good.

    Not really sure if I liked this....but I did buy it.....so if I give it three stars and wait for a few months or so I may trick myself into thinking its better than it is...and my purchase will be justified.......................

    Rutger Hauer is my favorite vigilante.

    This film is probably the best advertisement for AND against open carry.

    The Dark Knight meets Sin City in Grindhouse fashion.

    Jason Eisener should feel really bad about himself,
    and really fucking proud of himself at the same time.

    A movie based on a fake movie trailer in (2007's good time) "Grindhouse". A hobo comes off the train to a horrible little place called Fucktown. The town is run by one nasty gangster guy who gives (Desperate Living)Queen Carlotta a good name. The hobo saves a hooker from possible rape/torture/murder. He goes to the police. The police turn him over to the bad guys. And soon we get our title. In every way this movie is over the top.…
