It's all in good fun and sometimes a little clever; "Hobo" shoots low and scores an explosive spray of guts, if not glory.

Pretty fucked up. But then again, it's got Rutger Hauer so I'm not complaining.

Intentionally trashy, gritty, and ultra-violent, this piece of exploitation homage is as good as anyone could expect from a movie titled 'Hobo With a… More

Dear God. This movie.....as far as contemporary grindhouse films (and homages to them go), this is one of the better ones. It's also one of the sickest,… More
