"Hobo quits begging; demands change" is just one moment of utterly insane brilliance in this piece of B grade trash which sees Rutger Hauer,a hobo, take to extreme measures to save the day -hint-he uses a shotgun.Hauer's Hobo finds himself in a town run by trash and decides to clean up using erm, a shotgun to do so.This is joyously lunatic and full of blood and gore as well as laugh out loud lines (You're going to ride shotgun! he decries at one point) but there's no serious social commentary here about how the homeless are mistreated,purely a flick which is exploitation and silly fun. Hauer is good value as the sneering bum with a cause and to be honest, there's little sense on show here in this film which is bathed in blues and cheesy purples. Best enjoyed with a brain checked at the door, you really don't need to over analyse in this;merely sit back and bathe in the cinematic bloodbath unfurling in front of you - and just be grateful,you're not on the list for justice - hobo style
