A vigilante homeless man pulls into a new city and finds himself trapped in urban chaos, a city where crime rules and where the city's crime boss reigns. Seeing an urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused prostitutes and even a pedophile Santa, the Hobo goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how - with a 20-gauge shotgun.

The featured Hope Town Gazette articles have different titles and bylines, each naming a different production/crew member; however, each "article" has the same text content, originally written by Todd Brown of Twitch.com, who was one of the first to announce the upcoming film. That text begins with, "Yes, kids, I've been sitting on this for a while now, but with the director and star both talking about it publicly in recent days, I suppose the muzzle is off." See more »
When the bad guys approach the school bus, the rear exit door window clearly has no "PORTE DE SECOURS" sign on it (which is French for Emergency Exit). But just a moment later when the kids inside try to escape the burning bus, one of the kids can be seen at the rear exit door, where now can plainly be seen the inscription "PORTE DE SECOURS" on the window.

Grimy, low-rent and poorly pieced-together but strangely entertaining.
Originally a less than two-minute trailer attached to Rodriguez and Tarantino's 'Grindhouse (2007)' project, this seventies-styled exploitation shock-fest features nothing more yet nothing less than what it says on the tin and is simultaneously a terribly grimy, low-rent, poorly pieced-together picture but also a strangely entertaining, ostentatiously wild ride from start to finish. 'Hobo With A Shotgun (2011)' is not going to be for everyone, either, because not only does it look, sound, feel and generally seem like a sub-par piece, it's also incredibly balls-to-the-wall abrasive and violently vulgar to boot. Within the context of its genre, though, there's a blackly-comic through-line and a strong sense of 'trash-art' that just makes the entire experience strangely entertaining - even if you do watch it while wearing a grimace. 6/10
