A shockingly realistic account of life in Maritime Canada.

Awesomely hilarious gory action flick starring Rutger Hauer as the nameless titular hobo. While Machete was a decent homage to exploitation flicks, this one feels like the real thing...sleazy, cheap, over the top, and gratuitously violent. Hauer makes the perfect choice to never let on that he's in on the joke, playing the hobo straight as a somewhat confused and frightened old man surrounded by total insanity.

In many ways this is the best of the recent "Grindhouse" pictures in that it plays its ridiculousness straight. Hauer especially grounds himself firmly in the face of chaos, delivering a ridiculous soliloquy about grizzly bears (as a metaphor for himself) as if it's the most serious thing he's ever read. It just makes it that much funnier, while the rest of the cast goes wild with their over-the-top roles. The neon aesthetic & graphic gore are the cherry on top of this deliciously absurd sundae.

Of all the films in the recent Grindhouse revival, "Hobo" is the only film that seems like it was plucked straight from the sleezier side of the 70s, even if it does feel more like a Troma movie at times. Possibly one of the most entertaining films of the year so far, this features everything an exploitation fan could ask for and more. "I'm gonna sleep in your bloody carcasses tonight!"

Without a doubt this is a far better effort than Machete which quickly became a repetitive and relatively generic movie. Rutger Hauer manages to really give the most charisma despite how utterly absurd it is. He plays his role completely straight which results it far better comedy then if it had been played for laughs. Yes, Hobo with a Shotgun is full of gore but it's so over the top that it's impossible to take seriously. Highly recommended as a comedic take on the grindhouse genre.
