Starring Rutger Hauer, Hobo With A Shotgun is smart and fun and way over the top... just as a cheesy parody of early 1980s action movie should be. Jason Eisener’s cheerfully lurid comedy was inspired by a spoof trailer made for Quentin Tarantino’s Grindcore project (we also screened Machete earlier this year from the same project), and it certainly does equal the Grindhouse movies made by Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez in terms of cartoon violence and genre-homages.
The synopsis is brief as follows: hammed up Rutger Hauer is a vengeful tramp bringing vigilante justice to a hellishly corrupt sin city ruled over by a bonkers crime boss...
It's pulpy blood-splattery fun for cheap TTT thrills.
