The title above says it all maybe the best movie I have ever seen.
dalt
There are some other good scenes in this film as well, and I thought the movie was very fun to watch.
Grindhouse and Horror
And like all exploitation films, we get things that just don't make a bit of sense.

Really liked this movie. Yes it's violent and over the top, but hey, this is grindhouse. The characters are wonderful and almost every one is iconic in their own right. The movie makers created a gritty world with strange and twisted people mostly committing vile acts. Kind of like if Troma had made Robocop. This was less of an homage to grindhouse movies of the 70's and 80's and more like an actual grindhouse movie. The film had bright bleeding colors and harsh contrast that helped to give this film a very uniquely gritty look. There were lots of scenes of murder, mutilation and torture, but there were also scenes in this movie that elevate it to something more than a "B" horror movie. The hobos talk to the newborns, a certain death scene, the Plague, and even the wickedness of the main bad guy. This was definitely a grindhouse flick and more. Looking forward to seeing more from this director and crew.

I've been wanting to see this movie for a long time, and I finally watched it with some friends, and all I have to say is...wow! This movie was so incredibly and insanely violent. People lose their heads, get ripped open with a baseball bat covered in razor blades, and get shot to death by an ass-kicking hobo. This movie based on the trailer from Grindhouse has more action than Machete. If you are easily offended by children being burned alive or being watched by a pedophile Santa Claus, you should stay away. This was a fun movie to watch, and all the gore scenes are hilarious and epic.

Rutger Hauer stars as a Hobo who comes to a new town, overrun with corruption. He befriends a hooker named Abby. While a Pawn shop is getting robbed, the Hobo can't take it anymore and decides to shoot the robbers down with a shotgun. He becomes a vigilante and goes around shooting anybody involved with crime. Never ever cross a HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN!!!

Disclaimer: I viewed this film as a streaming rental, and as such, cannot comment on the audio or visual quality of the product. My review is concerned with the entertainment quality of the film only.

Those viewers who consider the lawnmower slaughter scene at the end of Dead Alive to be pure cinematic brilliance, or chuckled at the gold-standard black comedy of Danny Trejo rappelling down the side of a building using the entrails of his last victim for rope in Machete, will doubtless find all their movie needs met in 'Hobo with a Shotgun', a film that really needs no introduction because...well, because the title sort of gives the whole thing away anyway. Both the title and the cover art are important here: this is a definite 'what you see is what you get', so if exploitation and trash cinema do not appeal to you, THEN YOU SHOULD NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE. If, on the other hand, you feel as though 98% of films do not go far enough while exploring the limits of sadistic gore and violence, then don't wait, run to your nearest outlet and feast on the utter lunacy of 'Hobo with a Shotgun'.

For what it is, I really can't think of any other film that I've seen that tops 'Hobo'. I can't claim to have seen all the classics of trash cinema, but I have seen a lot of bad exploitation, and as far as acting abilities and effects, 'Hobo' is at the very top. Rutger Hauer is as good here as he's ever been, and even if some of the rest of the cast can't quite measure up, that's no more than usual for the standard formula for these films.

With a name like Hobo with a Shotgun, you get exactly what's advertised; a hobo roaming an infested city with a shotgun attempting to clean its streets of the filth that inhabits it. The story is obviously simple and if the movie has intrigued you in any way, then you probably weren't attracted to it for the story alone. Rutger Hauer is more than likely a drawing factor. The guy has talent and just seems to have trouble picking the right project to be a part of. Hobo with a Shotgun could definitely be considered over the top, but its ridiculously memorable one liners, low budget exploitation atmosphere, and nonstop use of practical effects for gore make you realize that even though Rutger Hauer is getting up there in years he is still capable of picking entertaining projects to be a part of every now and then.

There aren't too many one-liners that can be shared due to them being insanely vulgar as you can imagine, but there are a few that can be squeezed in here. "I'm going to wash this blood off with your blood!" One of the greatest aspects of the movie is that everything has this tongue in cheek kind of feel to it, so there's a sense of it not being taken completely seriously even though the actions on screen are fantastically gruesome and the entire cast seems to do their best to give a riveting performance. "I'm gonna sleep in your bloody carcasses tonight!" Rutger Hauer is the heart and soul of the movie. Without him the movie would've just been completely senseless. Hauer at least tries (and succeeds the majority of the time) of making you feel sympathy for this hobo who just wants to start a business for himself and do what he thinks is best for the city he's currently in. "You and me are goin' on a car ride to hell... and you're riding shotgun!
