Excerpt: For me it's definitely the best. Gory, funny, over the top, dark, and Canadian?! SOLD! The image quality is great, and the colors are like nothing you've seen before. It's like hi-def filmed in the 70s! Not for the faint of heart or those fond of children living through an entire movie...
Excerpt: I'm a bit shocked I didn't enjoy this. I mean, I'm a huge fan of the spoof grindhouse movies like Planet Terror, Machete, and even some true grindhouse movies from the 70's. Some problems I had with this film were several scenes end up feeling like they drag on.

Excerpt: Hobo with a shotgun is pure bloody, popcorn b movie, smash your head open fun. That's not to say it's perfect in all of it's grindhouse infused nature, but it very simply delivers the goods and you can't ask for much more then that.
Excerpt: The Movie Hobo With A Shotgun is gruesome, sickening, twisted, disturbing, absurd and gory. Those are just a few words to sum up this over-the-top, yet very entertaining movie. Similar movies to Hobo With A Shotgun would be Machete and Planet Terror, but Hobo stretches further and actually manages...
Excerpt: I love this movie!!! Wall to wall carnage at it's best. Rutger Hauer is killer as a Hobo trying to make a new start in a new city. Abby(Molly Dunsworth) as the hooker with of heart of gold who helps the hobo when things got of hand.
Excerpt: I loved this movie. If you're a fan of Troma or the faux (and real) grindhouse fare, this flick's for you. Violent, action-packed and hilarious. Rutger Hauer is a revelation as the Hobo with a shotgun. The all-Canadian cast is a hoot, especially the villains.
Excerpt: Honestly, I really, really enjoyed "Hobo With a Shotgun." In this age of neo-Grindhouse cinema, "Hobo With a Shotgun" is just as good as "Machete" or (fill in the blank) and I enjoyed every cheeky, bloody minute. Now, having said that..."Hobo With a Shotgun" was almost too outrageous.

Excerpt: I've always been a huge fan of 70's and 80's grindhouse (exploitation). Even really loved some of the "homage" films like Death Proof and The Devil's Rejects. Hobo ranks up in top, in this genre.
Conclusion: Hahaha i have to say a whole lot of magazine reviewers didn't really get the idea of this film. It got many bad reviews which is a shame. I think the words tongue in cheek rule for this film, rutger hauer was great in the lead role and molly dunsworth great as the prostitute.
