Your reaction to this gruesome exploitation throwback might depend on your mood - and how much blood and guts you can stomach.

A very violent low budget movie that packs one hell of a punch at times, It's not afraid to cross lines and that's what makes this film stand out, Not greatly acted and the story kind of loses its whole purpose in the end but if has some pretty over the top kills that were very very bloody at times, If you're into the whole Grindhouse thing then this will be right up your street, It's also worth a watch if you like brainless action films with lots of blood too.

One of the very best over-the-top grindhouse movies you will ever see. If you are closed minded and/or don't know what a grindhouse movie is and have never seen them before, you will hate this movie. If you like the genre, this movie is some serious fun and worth re-watching 100x.

There is enough violence and death for the whole family to enjoy. The kids will love the various beheadings,shootings,impalings,immolation, and other
torture scenes.

One of the worst movies that I've ever seen. Saying that there were a few laughs along the way...

Modern grindhouse, like Death Proof or Planet Terror. Dumb, sick, scummy and quite gory and delightfully campy. Another homage of low budget B movie exploitation action horrors. Not very exciting though. Points for effort.

Shockingly, this movie is as cheesy as it's poster. In the first 5 minutes, one of the guys from Trailer Park Boys is brutally executed using a manhole cover with a hole in it that doubles as a neck collar. It does feel a whole lot like an 80's B movie though, so I got to give it at least 4 stars. If I hadn't seen that it was made in 2011, I'm not sure that I could have guessed that it wasn't a classic drive in movie.

An intriguing premise is drowned out in a hyper-violent slew of terrible colouring and storytelling. I'd question the sanity of anyone involved in the writing of this film.

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.
