Hobo with a Shotgun (2011)

A train pulls into its final station and a Hobo hops from a freight car. He has dreams of a fresh life in a new city, but finds himself trapped in an urban hell instead. A city where criminals rule the streets, landlords evict single mothers in the middle of the night, and where the city's crime boss, The Drake, reigns supreme with his sadistic, homeless-killing sons, Slick & Ivan. Through the chaos, the Hobo comes across a shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower and a shotgun, and decides it's time to cut the grass, make the city beautiful and start a new way of life. But after witnessing the brutality that encompasses this city, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this place is with a gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber. More »

    i just brought this film- and it is what it is- and i love that it doesnt try to be "what it was" in the day- a modern exploitation flick- but using modern devices- - no false scratches and it is just a film that has a director that loves to piknmix- sour colour palletes- extreme gore- differed camera devices!
    And yes it shows the genius of cinema and gives it both a good and bad name!

    Is this movie really as extremely gory as most say it is?

    This movie is so bad that it skipped going straight to dvd and went straight to Dish Network. I'm not talking about the new releases you have to pay 3 bucks in order to watch; this sh*t was on the regular channels package the very day it was released!

    O_o Wow. You know, I don't much care if its total sh*t or not. Thats Rutger effing Hauer. He is the epitome of old-timey badass. Remember him making an art of existing off coffee, cigars, and chocolate? Come on now, really? you're going to boo this movie for being subpar, beneath your standards. Bah.

    " *taptaptap* Good dog." Oughta smite all of you for even thinking! Of giving him a low rating.

    I think Scouserman missed the point..it's SUPPOSED to look like it was made in the 80's...grindhouse style..like MACHETE was. It takes after exploitation movies like The Exterminator and Death Wish 2.
