What were these other reviewers expecting from a movie called Hobo With a Shotgun? If you like practical gore/bloody effects, cheesy dialogue, 70's/80's exploitation, then you will like this movie.

Pure garbage. Sad to see Rutger Hauer signed on for this piece. Someone else mentioned Toxic Avenger, sadly Toxic Avenger is much better.

This movie is not for everybody. I loved it ! But would only recommend it to fans of Grindhouse, Troma & Exploitation films. If you like movies such as The Story of Riki Oh, The Toxic Avenger, Street Trash or The Tokyo Gore Police you'll love this movie. Rutger Hauer was perfect for the part & delivers a nonstop beating of ultra violence & bad taste. Watch at your own risk, you have been warned.

You can't solve the World's problems with a shotgun ... absurd in Technicolor the title isn't misleading although he was opting for a lawnmower initially

Cheesy, ultra-violent vigilante movie. It's so over-the-top and yet I still got a kick out of it.

They took an older but great actor, Rutger Hauer, and surrounded him with a bunch of nobodies, threw in the F-word, some stupid dialog and of course blood and gore and said,"It's a movie". Got so bad I had to turn it off. Even without the language it bites!!

Blood and gore galore! One of those films you either love it or barf at it. It is non-stop violence, blood baths and blown-off body parts in between the anarchy rants. The over an hour long documentary on how the scenes and props were made is included in the extras. It took some imagination and specialization for these kind of movies.

Skip It - Hobo with a Shotgun (2011) 86 min. Starring Rutger Hauer, Molly Dunsworth, Brian Downey. I get the cinematography and feel of the movie in re-enacting the schlock films of the 70s and early 80s but this film goes too far with respect to extreme violence. The film has evil over-and-undertones scattered throughout. One of the worst films I’ve seen in 2012.

The trailer was so bad I had to see this. You will think either this movie is fun because it's so bad, or that it's just bad. Unfortunately, it really really is just a really really really bad movie. Forget what Rutger Hauer was thinking, what the &*&()* was I thinking?

I can't think what Rutger Hauer was thinking when he signed up for this. Moronic puerile rubbish. It could have been an enjoyable pastiche of 70s drivein fodder. Instead it's low-budget over-the-top idiocy which is trying to be a pastiche.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It was an experiment to see if I liked Quentin Tarantino movies. Definately not. I fast forwarded through most of the movie. Too intense violent and sexual scenes

ncooper987 Feb 06, 2012

Violence: Too much visualization of breaking bones, blood and ripping apendages from people.

Other: The movie has a large R pasted on the cover by the Ottawa Public Library. Well deserved IMO because the violence level is higher than average.
