Hobo With A ShotGun

Hobo With A Shotgun

Director: Jason Eisener
Writer: John Davies, Jason Eisener
Starring: Rutger Hauer
Review By: Griff

That’s right, I watched it.

Like Machete, this is another fake trailer from Grindhouse that was turned into a full-length film. Unlike Machete however, it’s not very good.

This movie is really just an excuse for some gratuitous violence for no reason. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good horror flick and I don’t mind the occasional violent action film but, a movie needs to have more to it than just violence.

The plot, what there is of it, revolves around Hobo (Rutger Hauer) who

rides the rails into an unnamed city that is a modern day Sodom. Depravity rules here, and the entire city is run by a gangster named Drake and his two psychopathic sons; Ivan, and Slick.
Hobo is just trying to mind his own business but eventually he gets dragged into the action when he stops a hooker from being raped by Slick. Hobo takes Slick to the police station but soon discovers that Police are just as corrupt as the criminals. Hobo is beaten by Slick and the police and left for dead. He survives however, and decides that it’s time to take some revenge. Cue the shotgun.

The thing that made Machete entertaining was that it never took itself seriously. It was pure camp and filled with humorous one liners and enjoyable, over the top, action sequences. Hobo with a Shotgun is just a humorless gore fest. Genitals explodes, hands are cut off with lawn mowers, it goes on and on.

Bottom line? This movie sucks. Don’t waste your time.
