Matt Shiverdecker’s review:
Director Jason Eisener won a ,Grindhouse' trailer contest at SXSW in 2007 with his clip for 'Hobo With A Shotgun'. Like Machete before it, Hobo now leaps to the big screen as an outrageously violent full-length feature. Rutger Hauer takes on the role of the title character with a perfectly weathered face and expressive ice blue eyes.
In the spirit of classic exploitation films, this Canadian production pulls out all the stops for genre fans. The RED digital camera system allows the film to fill the screen with candy-colored hues even in its most bleak moments. This festival favorite is undeniably brutal and blood-soaked, but if you're sold by the title, I sincerely doubt that you'll be disappointed.
