Hobo With a Shotgun Reviews

Will Leitch

This is the type of movie you want to punch in the face.

Fun to a point, but by about the hour mark I was more than ready to check out.

Hobo with a Shotgun celebrates its genre roots but in no way expounds on them; it's all pastiche with no substance.

What should have been a rousing shoot-em-up gets tedious rather quickly.

The relentless and pointless sadism of the film left me cold and bored, which not even the presence of Rutger Hauer could cure.

Surely it's a fairly hollow victory to laugh at something that's been specifically designed to be lame/schlocky/dated/offensive?

An artless film of amateurishly scripted and staged over-the-top violence

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Limbs are severed, heads roll, a school bus is incinerated, and a dude gets burnt by sticking his hockey skate into a plugged in toaster. Some is clever, but much of it's wearying and a bit lame...

When this amount of ham arrives coated in so much ketchup, there's not much room left to find any pleasure at all.

What should have been a rousing shoot-em-up gets tedious rather quickly, with the overacting villains and their over-the-top mayhem feeling very same-y after the first few scenes.

Will leave most viewers bored and uneasy, especially in scenes like the burning alive of a busful of young children.

It's a bore, but it delivers on the carnage.

Creates a tremendously unsettling aura of sadism instead of chunky, schlocky merriment. Why should I be punished just because Davies and Eisener weren't hugged enough as kids?

This is no light-hearted spoof. It's 100% grindhouse. Which, for the most part and by definition, simply makes it trash.

It stomps over any notions of good taste and credibility after roughly five minutes.

This one is a sicko exercise in meaningless entertainment, geared for those who get off on moronic bloodbath pics.

Even connoisseurs of the genre (and I confess, I'm not one) will find the cheesy chopfests and gratuitous gore less than exciting as one urban prosthetics-strewn bloodbath begets the next.

A merrily blood-soaked homage to the vigilante action movies of the 1970s and early 1980s, "Hobo'' is a good idea in theory that's brought down by the banality of its practice.

There's no escaping the fact this is a remake of unadulterated rubbish.

The screenplay plays like the result of a 'Write the Most Vile Line Ever' contest, which in itself will be a huge draw for cinematic dumpster divers. [Blu-ray]
