Wayhomer Review #73: Hobo With a Shotgun

By Widge - posted 07.09.11 @ 12:40 am

Rutger Hauer in Hobo With a Shotgun

Episode #73 for Hobo With a Shotgun, in which our protagonist takes a trip down not memory lane but memory aisle-of-a-video-store, explains how you probably shouldn't try to rate this one along the same lines as Remains of the Day (or the like) and holds up Rutger Hauer as an acting god.

    Yes, yes, and yes. I couldn't find this in theaters anywhere on its limited release, and so I snapped this up as soon as it hit Blu Ray. I have to say it's one of the only films I've seen recently that, A. made me want to watch it again, immediately, and, B. made me want to watch the "making of" stuff that I usually forego in CG-a-thon flicks. Hand-made gore and real fire looks WAY better than computerized stuff, and is more interesting to see how it's made.

    One of the worst films I have ever seen. Ugly and stupid beyond belief. Talentless crap. I liked the reminescing about old video stores, indeed much better than talking about the actual film... I'm very nostalgic for the 70-80s, but this isn't a throwback to anything good... G
