Gloriously over-the-top blood pudding about a homeless man (Hauer) who goes Dirty Harry on a dead-end town run by sadistic crims.

WOW!! Comparing the hobo to Dirty Harry?! Alright let's compare.

The hobo reacts with violence and revenge only because he was interrupted while trying to buy a lawn mower, and at that point had already overseen senseless murder and a pedophile kidnapping a child and had no misgivings about walking away.

Dirty Harry is searching restlessly for a kidnapped girl and makes every effort to protect the innocent civilians of his city.

Hi again Timothy! Just because you don't like the film, doesn't mean you have to be a dick and criticize the people that do!

And just because you like the film doesnt mean you have to be a dick and criticize people who think too much sadism ruins a movie.

hey, Brian L, shut the fuck up and let the Hobo fan defend himself. I did not enjoy the film either but if he liked it and some one keeps attacking anyone who likes it, should not he respond

if you insist upon making a public jackass of yourself, jim, the least you can do is spare us the use of such cliches as "over the top"...it is not over the top...it is just gorepornography that is as far out of line aesthetically as it is morally...hitting a busload of kids with a flamethrower is not "over the top", it is just plain sick...ciao.

so many of you boys can't seem to resist the term "over the top"...this emetic flik is not over the top, it is out of bounds ethically and very badly disguised as camp...gore is one thing, but to celebrate the incineration of a busload of children with a flamethrower as good clean fun is simply deranged...ciao.

right on, gus! not enough people have had the energy or candor to devote to breaking the silence on this, setting aside the obvious fact that those who do would have given it a pass to begin with...can i send you money?

How come you clowns comment on all the reviews for this movie? It blows my mind. Just give it a rest.
