Top 3 Reasons To Watch This Movie

The Title. Seriously. It gives you exactly what you expect… a hobo with a shotgun. And what does this hobo do? He shoots people. He shoots the shit out of them.

Rutger Hauer. The man is awesome. From playing Roy Batty in Blade Runner to the evil corporate stooge in Batman Begins, there is no role this man can not handle. What makes this performance so awesome is that he DOESN’T treat it like a joke. He plays it completely straight and somehow makes the movie even more hilarious.

The Complete Insanity. This movie was modeled after the Grindhouse style of movies from the 70s and 80s. From the cinematography to the soundtrack to the concept. What makes it better is that the movie is completely UNHINGED. Not only is the bum’s rampage a hell of a lot of fun to watch, but in the third act of the movie the movie takes a completely ridiculous turn that comes out of nowhere. You think you know where it’s going, but you have no idea (and I mean this in a good way, clearly.) Trust me, you won’t see it coming.

Ultra violent. Hilarious. Completely fucking insane.
