Hobo With A Shotgun (18)
Starring: Rutger Hauer, Pasha Ebrahimi, Robb Wells
Friday 15 July 2011
This apparently began life as a trailer for a fake grindhouse movie, much as Roberto Rodriguez's Machete did. Jason Eisener, tongue half in cheek, delivers a splatter movie that ought to have the old "X" rating after it.
Rutger Hauer plays the nameless hobo who arrives in a town run by a vicious crime family with the police in their pocket. So grotesque is their depravity that Rutger decides enough is enough, picks up a shotgun and starts delivering justice "one shell at a time". Shot in acid yellows and Hallowe'en reds, it stomps over any notions of good taste and credibility after roughly five minutes.
