MOVIE: Hobo with a Shotgun

  • Genre: Action/Adventure, Art/Foreign, Dram, Comedy
  • Running Time: 1 hr. 24 mins.
  • Release Date: May 6, 2011
  • Director: Jason Eisener
A train rolls into its final stop. From one of the freight cars jumps a weary-eyed transient with dreams of a fresh start in a new town. Instead, he lands smack-dab in the middle of an urban hellhole, a place where the cops are crooked and the underprivileged masses are treated like insignificant animals. This is a city where crime reigns supreme, and the man pulling the strings is known only as "The Drake." Along with his two cold-blooded and sadistic sons, Ivan and Slick, he rules with an iron fist, and nobody dares fuck with The Drake, especially not some hobo. 

Last weekend my our friend stopped by the house and asked me if we wanted to watch a movie, I'm like sure. I am always down for movies, the less popular the better. Most of them have really great story line and some of them are just plain stupid. I still watch both anyways. So I asked for the title and literally laughed out loud. Seriously? Hobo with a Shotgun?! This should be interesting. So we watched it. I was told at the beginning that it will be gnarly/gory. The kind that my husband despise, the ones that I like. So I asked them what they mean by gory? Is it like Ninja Assassins' gory, Saw gory or Hostel gory. And they were like hell no. Those are not even gory. So again I'm thinking this should be interesting. And they were right, Hobo with a Shotgun made those other gory movies look like a chick flick compared to this. It was bloody, disgusting, and disturbing. I'd love to share some scene but unfortunately, I wanted my site to be teenager friendly (sort of). I absolutely loved it! When they tell me the movie is going to be gory, I expect it to be like this. 

The dialogue was so horrible it turned itself into a comedy, this movie was based on a fake trailer for the Grindhouse, so what do you expect. It did have a pretty solid plot though. A city ruled by a mob with his two sons killing people on the spot, harassing women, terrorizing the city. Have you seen Back to the Future? Remember that part wherein Biff ruled the city. It is like that but 500x worse. The Hobo look like he is between the age of 60-70 years of age, he got hold of a shotgun and started shooting the bad guys. A homeless vigilante who befriended a prostitute, and together they decided to fight crime. Only there were body parts that got sacrificed.
