You get what you pay for with a movie like this. The question is whether it was worth paying for at all.

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

An artless film of amateurishly scripted and staged over-the-top violence
November 23, 2011
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.

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

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

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.

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.

Hobo With a Shotgun reminded me of Hatchet, another inexplicable genre favorite that, from where I sat, seemed to do little but rearrange genre tropes to get a Pavlovian rise from its niche audience.

Belongs at the bottom of a disused coal mine in one of those desperately impoverished West Virginia townships that advertise for people to send them their nuclear waste.

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

Fans of the genre will relish the ironies (or, as it's known in the trade, the chance to have your cake and eat it).
July 14, 2011
Like most of its kind, it's just so bad it's bad.
July 14, 2011
There's no escaping the fact this is a remake of unadulterated rubbish.
July 14, 2011
I've got to admit there are flashes of demented brilliance in this hardcore crassploitation splatter pic.
July 13, 2011
When this amount of ham arrives coated in so much ketchup, there's not much room left to find any pleasure at all.
July 13, 2011
This is no light-hearted spoof. It's 100% grindhouse. Which, for the most part and by definition, simply makes it trash.
July 12, 2011
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]

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...
