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!Read more ›
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.Read more ›
I recall seeing Grindhouse on its opening day, and when Hobo With a Shotgun showed, I laughed myself silly!!! It was probably the funniest of the fake trailers, and most agreed. Cut to 3 years later, and Hobo With a Shotgun has been made as a movie!! As you can imagine I anticipated its release and saw it Monday, and loved it!!!
A nameless Hobo gets off a train in a town called Hope Town, hoping to start a new life. He tries to save whatever money he can get for a lawnmower so he can start a business to mow people's lawns. However, the streets are full of corruption and violence, ruled by a ruthless psycho named Drake and his two sons.
However, one day, a new life automatically starts for the hobo when having struggled enough to get the money, he goes to buy the lawnmower and a robbery occurs. He notices the shotgun on the wall, uses it to shoot the robbers, and leaves one alive to tell the tale. With the help of a tired hooker named Abbey, this angry hobo will not stop until Drake and his empire are dead!
Hobo with a Shotgun is fun from the first frame. It is short and sweet, it is sickeningly violent and hilarious!!! There's buckets of blood and gore spilled, there's lots of dark humour, there's great acting and it is VERY Canadian. This film is evidence that Canadian cinema is some of the best around.
I was also surprised at the amount of heart it had too.Read more ›
