Some may argue that Hobo with a Shotgun encapsulates a joke worn thin, but the B-movie energy that pulses through the veins of this beast is not to be denied.

Hobo With A Shotgun is as likely to please Quentin Tarantino fans as it is to offend everyone else, with scenes of elaborate decapitations and scantily clad women writhing in the ensuing blood spatter.

It's clear Eisener has an eye for the schlock genre and, by letting his imagination run wild, Hobo with a Shotgun emerges as a sure-to-be perennial, shockingly violent and wonderfully clever yet purposely screwball modern-day vigilante thriller.

... a blood-spattered love letter to the grindhouse vengeance movie by first-time filmmakers who, as Spinal Tap might put it, crank everything up to 11.

It's nice to find a wacky movie that knows how to employ "shock value" violence with some degree of timing and cleverness.

You get what you pay for with a movie like this. The question is whether it was worth paying for at all.
June 22, 2013
This is the type of movie you want to punch in the face.

Hobo With A Shotgun is a film in the tradition of 70s exploitation films. But unlike most grindhouse films, this one is actually awesome.
January 8, 2013
An artless film of amateurishly scripted and staged over-the-top violence
January 5, 2012
Such a desperate attempt at being one of Robert Rodriguez or Quentin Tarantino's '70s exploitation throwbacks that it's a little bit sad.
November 30, 2011
A cult picture that's completely comfortable in its own skin.

Great title, but this silly vigilante action movie is so exaggerated, so over-the-top that it is over the hill. It has gone to seed and needs to be weeded.
November 15, 2011
This one is a sicko exercise in meaningless entertainment, geared for those who get off on moronic bloodbath pics.
October 25, 2011
Hobo with a Shotgun celebrates its genre roots but in no way expounds on them; it's all pastiche with no substance.
October 18, 2011
Gloriously over-the-top blood pudding about a homeless man (Hauer) who goes Dirty Harry on a dead-end town run by sadistic crims.
September 23, 2011
It's a grindhouse mess but it stars Rutger Hauer!
August 30, 2011
This film isn't for the weak of stomach or the tenderhearted. But if you think you can enjoy its silly, explosive and splatter nature, it's a nice dose of fun.
August 26, 2011
Rutger Hauer is the show, the whole show, and nothing but the show in Hobo with a Shotgun, a throwback that, for all its bloodletting and supposed shock value, feels comparatively conventional and tame.
August 15, 2011
Fun to a point, but by about the hour mark I was more than ready to check out.
August 13, 2011
The relentless and pointless sadism of the film left me cold and bored, which not even the presence of Rutger Hauer could cure.
