About as bloody as I was expecting it to be.

Gory and full of great action. The hobo had a great performance, along with Slick.

A typical grindhouse exploitation film, hobo with a shotgun does exactly what it says on the tin and delivers. Originally a fake trailer to go with the tarantino/rodriguez grindhouse feature. This film has typical over the top gore, minimal storyline and no limit. A great film to pass a spare 90 minutes, damn right entertaining and typically cult based.

In the tradition of Grindhouse, just not in a good way, this recreates all the worst parts of the video nasty era (like confusing small budget mise-en-scene and design) while largely missing the mark on the elements people hold affection for. For all the gore, there are a couple of quieter dialogue based scenes that actually do achieve the "is this a dead on parody of crap or just actual crap?" that the rest of the film aims for and misses.

A classic tribute to the exploitation films of the 1970's which, in itself, has become a classic. Its incredibly violent and Rutger Hauer rules.

Was alright. Some really funny moments but had no real story to it

Just a guess this was a low budget film (whatever that means) but the attention to detail in this film was mental. Probably best film I've seen for a while. Matey from VHS 2 did this film too, which is amaze. Proper nuts film fuck off gore and that. I would compare the aesthetic with Turbo kid, same music and gore sorta thing. Bang on. And really enjoyed it which is the main thing right? lelele

The title tells you all you need to know - Don't expect anything too complex and you'll do fine with this one.

El director Jason Eisner creó un trailer "imaginario" para las presentaciones en Canadá de la función doble de "Grindhouse", el magnífico proyecto de Quentin Tarantino y Robert Rodriguez que buscaba resucitar el espíritu de las peliculas de acción y terror Clase B. Al igual que "Machete", el trailer "falso" realizado por Rodriguez, que se convirtió en una gran cinta, Eisner hizo lo suyo con "Hobo With A Shotgun", una ultraviolenta película en la que un pueblo repleto de malvados que incendian buses de colegio y decapitan con autos a sus familiares, un Santa Claus pedofílico, policías psicópatas y un dúo de cyborgs llamados "La Plaga", se la tienen que ver nada más ni nada menos que con Rutger Hauer, interpretando a un vagabundo que renuncia a su sueño de comprar una podadora, para terminar adquiriendo una escopeta con la que se va a encargar de la limpieza del pueblo. ¿Necesita algo de testosterona? Esta cinta lo dejará plenamente satisfecho... los demás bien pueden ir a ver "Eat Pray And Love" con Julia Roberts.

There are things I liked about this (Hauer, the soundtrack, the style) however all that and more is lost in a sea of needless violence and gore.

Simple concept which is brutally executed. The best part for me is the tag line. "A disillusioned hobo serving justice one shell at a time."

While the sleazy, sexual elements of the film are true to the pulpy exploitation films to which it pays homage, they do become tired and discomforting. The action and gore, however, are amusingly bombastic and over-the-top.

A great, bloody, foul-mouthed, disturbing, and funny homage to 70's splatterhouse flicks.

too dark and graphic for my tastes. But i do love the title.

Holy Santa Claus's sledge just done a sh*t and named it Rudy, this film is like "Terminator "music, "The Running Man" violence + "Battle Royale" storyline. It's like Quentin Tarantino is trying to lick his own ball sack because they cheated on him. This film should just be called F**k off.

it's insane...and I liked it!

Hilariously over the top gore and countless quotable one-liners make Hobo With a Shotgun a fitting tribute to grindhouse cinema. [B]
