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

While shot on a Red Epic camera, the film was digitally post-processed in order to make it look like it was shot on color reversal stock cross-processed in negative chemicals, which results in highly saturated, shifted colors. See more »

Goofs

The manhole cover wrapped around the man's head is obviously fake and made out of rubber. It flexes a few times. See more »

Better than Grindhouse and Machete!!!
29 March 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film actually exceeded my expectations as it captured the essence of exploitation films in every way, such as the Technicolor. The grittiness, the violence, and some of the dialogue all fit in this film very well. Since this type of film is not to be taken seriously, it's hard to actually pinpoint some of it's problems. There was some over the top silliness in the film (look at the board to see why) that made me shake my head a little. Kind of a 'what's the point of this'? Other than that, this film is perfect for people who don't take movies seriously, which is more than I can say for some people on this board complaining that this movie shouldn't be bad for bad sakes. What else would you expect from a movie called "Hobo with a Shotgun"? The filmmakers of this movie in my opinion have created their own genre, kind of like Metallica did with Thrash Metal (Thrashploitation, maybe?). Hopefully we can see a trend going on with this genre because with constant CGI and Hollywood formula, it's nice to see a movie that is really "different".

I thought the crew could have made this movie a bit better, but it's their first feature. I hope the filmmakers go on the comment section of this movie and read what they could do to improve their filmmaking, as they should progress their talents further. I have no clue how they are going to do the same without Rutger Hauer or the Grindhouse backing, but I am looking forward to seeing their next film.
