BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Hope City has an inspiring name, but its streets have become overrun with crime. When a hobo (Rutger Hauer) arrives and plans to start a new life, he discovers how far gone Hope City has become. He himself is forced to demean himself in order to get some cash, but he uses the funds to purchase a lawn mower. After all, if he can earn some cash and make the city look better at the same time, that is all he can ask for.

  • Excerpt: The Rutger Hauer starring "Hobo With A Shotgun" is, frankly, not something I ever expected to see. Jason Eisener 's feature length adaptation of his own winning Grindhouse trailer is the type of film you expect to find in a grimy, somewhat dodgy and dark video rental store. It's brutal, insane, graphic and lurid. And I kinda loved it. Hauer is the eponymous hobo, riding into town on a rail-car. Little can he suspect though that he is entering Hell itself.

  • Excerpt: “Sometimes, on the street, a broom just ain’t gonna fucking cut it. That’s when you’ve got to get a shotgun!” In this film, never a truer word was spoken. If I’m honest, until Death Proof and Planet Terror came along in 2007 I’d never even heard of Grindhouse; and if I want to be even more honest, I didn’t think I’d missed much. But, I’m always open to a new film experience so I went into Hobo with a Shotgun with an open mind.

Hobo with a Shotgun (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: Movies are serious business. Box office numbers are like scripture readings to the brass who head the major studios. Even the independent filmmaker has to deal with the cold reality that it takes money to make a movie. Many find themselves somehow corrupted or changed by the atmosphere. It’s nice to catch a glimpse of that pirate spirit that still exists in some corners of the movie world. I won’t promise anything deep here.

Hobo with a Shotgun Blu-ray Review

14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Ricky and Bubbles with a Shotgun The Film When aspiring director Jason Eisener entered his 2-minute fake trailer into the Grindhouse contest back in 2007, he probably didn't expect what would come next. Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez were so enamored with the authentic looking Hobo with a Shotgun that it was inserted into the film and shown in select theaters in Canada and the United States.

Hobo With a Shotgun Review

DoBlu
7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Hobo With a Shotgun stars Rutger Hauer as a Hobo who just happens to have a shotgun, in a city where a hobo with a shotgun isn’t necessarily frowned upon until said hobo with a shotgun starts using said shotgun. Then it’s a problem. It must be a positive sign that director Jason Eisner’s fleshed out, feature length Grindhouse trailer doesn’t just use shotgun deaths.

Hobo with a Shotgun

  • Conclusion: The title, 'Hobo with a Shotgun,' says it all. Viewers are forewarned while others are enthusiastically invited to soak in the ghastly, low-budget spectacle. Featuring a terrific performance from Rutger Hauer, the Canadian-produced movie is an awesomely wild and hilarious celebration of drive-in B-features.

Hobo With A Shotgun

Rock! Shock! Pop!
30 June 2011
  • Excerpt: before it, started life as a fake trailer made to be shown in between the two features that made up Tarantino and Rodriguez’s Grindhouse double feature. The fake trailer was shown at Canadian theatrical screenings and became a pretty popular clip on YouTube and, low and behold, Jason Eisener managed to get funding to make the trailer into a feature with none other than the legendary Rutger Hauer in the lead role.
