Storyline

A vigilante homeless man pulls into a new city and finds himself trapped in urban chaos, a city where crime rules and where the city's crime boss reigns. Seeing an urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused prostitutes and even a pedophile Santa, the Hobo goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how - with a 20-gauge shotgun. Mayhem ensues when he tries to make things better for the future generation. Street justice will indeed prevail. Written by Greg Guy

Trivia

The song that plays over the end credits is "Run With Us" by Lisa Lougheed. It was originally written as the theme song for the animated series The Raccoons (1985), which, like this film, was produced in Canada. See more »

Goofs

Where Slick is about to saw at Abby's neck, the blade on his saw is quite shiny and obviously real. In the next shot when he holds the blade to her neck, the blade is quite dull and flexes obviously, as it is made of rubber. See more »

Violently gory exploitation movie, but with no backbone
28 December 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

For this second movie based on fake Grindhouse trailers, Rutger Hauer and Brian Downey get together again to create pure insanity. But unlike Lexx, Hobo with a Shotgun is nothing but insane, with no real plot behind the graphical violence and overstated gore. An exploitation film in all its glory, but in no way better than the likes of Nude Nuns with Big Guns.

The idea is that Hauer is a hobo, he comes to a town by railway, like all hobos, sees that the town is ruled by corruption and evil violence and decides to remedy the problem using a shotgun. Brian Downey is the bad guy, the sort of TV host gang boss that needs people to fear him publicly and be shocked by his insanity.

So there, this is the whole plot. There is a hooker in there, too, but she is a prop, just like the city that makes no sense, its psychopathic inhabitants and the overly corrupt cops. I really wanted to enjoy this

  • after all I did like Machete - but it felt a pointless waste of time


and I couldn't wait for it to be over.
