    odriguez and Tarantino knew how to do it. They both created Grindhouse movies that were made to entertain. The camera work was purposefully amateuristic and some of the scenes were clearly played out for laughs. Jason Eisener's "Hobo With a Shotgun" is not that kind of movie.

Jason Eisener's "Hobo With a Shotgun" is not that kind of movie. It is a joyless, sick and twisted movie with no intention to entertain you. He takes the elements of a Grindhouse movie and combines them to make the biggest pile of trash possible. Rutger Hauer is the only shining light in this abysmal grindhouse flick. By the time it was all over, I felt queasy from all the gratuitous gore and trashy dialogue. Skip this unless you enjoy the joyless torture porns. Expand

    This once existed only as a trailer to Grindhouse but one day some one decided to go on ahead and make the film. I mean, it has a catchy title, in a Snakes on a plane sort of way. And the idea of a sort of comedy action film with Rutger Hauer as a hobo with a shotgun sounded like it might be vaguely entertaining.

    The plot is this: hobo shows up in an ultra violent town. Ultra violent

    The plot is this: hobo shows up in an ultra violent town. Ultra violent things occur. Blood. Gore. Death.

    Hopefully the last, of the fake trailer spinoffs of 2007's "Grindhouse." It makes last year's "Machete" look like "The King's Speech."

    Is it good bad? Nah. It's just bad. It's so bad it makes "Machete," the other movie based on a mock trailer from "Grindhouse," look like high-gloss Kubrickian satire.
