A vigilante homeless man (Rutger Hauer) 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. Mayhem ensues when he tries to make things better for the future generation. Street justice will indeed prevail.

  • 2 stars "It’s a very good movie besides one scene I really enjoyed it"
  • 4 stars "This film delivers on all counts. I don't understand why people were shocked, horrified, and disappointed (etc). After all, it is titled "Hobo with a Shotgun". What were you expecting from a movie with that title? "Gone with the Wind" it's not."
  • 1 star "Pointless poop. ): Movie for simpletons."
