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

Garbage
5 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have seen all of Tarantino's and Rodriguez movies, and thought this would be a fun movie in the same spirit as Grindhouse or Machete. This is is AWFUL. How can anyone say its a great movie. I can't see how this movie gets above 6 on IMDb rating (rated higher than Hall Pass?). It should be 4 or less.

Honestly the acting is OK, some lines are funny, but the idea is badly executed, the violence and gore is so low budget, its sad (using 2 bumper cars to smash a guys head like a ripe tomatoe. really??? bumper cars go like 3 mph!!!). This could have been a much better movie, but the really dropped the ball. I really tried to like this movie, but it misses on so many levels, its sad. They should have mad it an outright parody.

Don't waste your time or money on this movie. Or watch it and post your honest review on here (you'll see how bad of a movie it is).
