Summary:
Have you ever had a shitty day or a time when you feel like a the whole world is pissing down on you?  If so let me introduce you to man who has you beat, he is a simple man and goes strictly by the name Hobo.  As a homeless man stuck in a city called Hope Town a.k.a. Scum Town over ran by the Drake and his two sons Ivan and Slick, Hobo witnesses firsthand how a city can get over ran with drugs, thugs, and assholes.  After reaching his breaking point this man of god decides to take matter into his own hands.  Shot by shot, Hobo, with the help of a local prostitute named Abby, is determine to get his city back to a time where dreams do come true.
Conclusion:
Admittedly I am one of the last of my friends to see this movie.  I was reluctant at first because normally I don’t enjoy the grind house style kill everyone movies.  But damn I couldn’t have been more wrong.  This movie from start to finish was action packed fun.  From the dark comedy of the Drake and the Hobo relentless attitude, we finally have a movie to cheer for and it doesn’t come from a main stream production company (SURPRISE!!!).  This film should become the hand guide on how to make a exploitation film going forward.  It delivers a great plot, fantastic kills and great acting yet still gives us that grainy low budget feel we all love.  Jason Eisener and John Davies did what thousands try and they perfected it.  They gave us 86 minutes of ass kicking action.  The selection of Rutger Hauer was perfect and without him his film probably would have been horrid.  Words can’t describe the intensity of this movie – so go buy it, rent it, steal it, or watch it on Netflix Instant.
