Staff Pick: Hobo with a Shotgun

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Fans of exploitation cinema, rejoice! "Hobo with a Shotgun" is finally here!

Based on a contest-winning fake trailer for the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez collaboration "Grindhouse," "Hobo" joins "Machete" as the second film to make the jump from fake trailer to real feature.

"Hobo" is everything "Machete" should have been. Rutger Hauer spews an endless stream of future classic quotes, all while dispensing absurdly violent vigilante justice against over-the-top bad guys.

It is definitely not for the squeamish or easily shocked, but the raucous atmosphere at the sneak preview was a blast. You've gotta see this in the theater.
