Movie Review #1 - Hobo With A Shotgun

Just to start off the post, sorry about the delay in reviews, i was actually going through some personal things in life and didn't have time to post, but i'm back now so here we go!

What is there to say about this movie? It's pretty much exactly what you will think it will be, based off of the title alone. Hobo With A Shotgun is based off of a fake trailer that played in Canada during the fake trailers in the Grindhouse movies and is about a homeless man who train hops to a town full of crooked cops, gangs, drugs, and prostitution. Begging for change to complete his long life dream; buying a lawnmower. He finally get's enough money to purchase said lawnmower, and during his shopping rendezvous a gang of thugs comes in to try and rob the place, but with a shotgun to his right...this Hobo has other plans.

 From that point, the movie is pretty much the Hobo going around destroying the druggies, gangs and crooked cops, and it's pure awesomeness. Not to mention he meets a beautiful sidekick named Abby whom is some nice eye candy. Not to give too much away, but this movie is great. With great, over the top comedic gore, over the top one liners that make this movie as brilliant as it is, and fantastic cinematography, Hobo With A Shotgun has been the most enjoyable movie i have seen this year.
For fans of Black Dynamite, Dead Snow, and all other movies full of black comedy and hilarity.

Delivering justice...one shell at a time!
