HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN

The title says it all. Gloriously violent and crude, Hobo is as simple and genius as the title suggests. Rutger Hauer, no stranger to B movies in the 80's, plays the hobo…and does a much better job than he probably had to. He's in on the joke from start to finish but never breaks character to wink at the audience. You either get it or you don't. Over the top doesn't even begin to describe what happens in 86 minutes but it's one hell of a ride! This should have been the second feature of Grindhouse, not Death Proof…if it had been, Grindhouse wouldn't have bombed. Shotgun hits the bullseye…I loved it!
