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

Hobo With A Shotgun is a film in the tradition of 70s exploitation films. But unlike most grindhouse films, this one is actually awesome.

Such a desperate attempt at being one of Robert Rodriguez or Quentin Tarantino's '70s exploitation throwbacks that it's a little bit sad.

A cult picture that's completely comfortable in its own skin.

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

It's a grindhouse mess but it stars Rutger Hauer!

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.

A film that can't resist picking its own scabs.
July 18, 2011
Rutger Hauer at least seems to be in on the joke, even if the joke wears pretty thin.

Jason Eisener's Hobo with a Shotgun is trash with a difference: designer trash.

Provides its target audience with exactly what they want while still managing to be aware of just how silly it all is.

The cartoon viciousness and wild overacting only add to the winningly exuberant excess of what is a startling feature debut for the director.

Created by a fan for fans everywhere, Eisener's film is simultaneously original and a perfect throwback to the blood-splattered movies of the 70s.

Matthew Turner
July 13, 2011
An entertaining, absurdly violent exploitation thriller that's pretty much non-stop action and doesn't skimp on the gore factor.

Hauer's best since The Hitcher. If Eisener calms down, he may have a career outside live-action 'toons.

Rutger Hauer is a genius.

Twice as good as a fi lm based on a spoof trailer has any right to be, Hobo is a great career kickstarter for director Eisener and the credibility boost Hauer richly deserves.
