Sundance ’11 REVIEW: ‘Hobo With a Shotgun’ Just “Bad”?

Ryan Daley is continuing with his Sundance Film Festival coverage with a negative review of Jason Eisener’s Hobo With a Shotgun, which will receive a release later this year via Magnet.

The argument could be raised that much of Hobo with a Shotgun is intentionally bad, that––as an homage to 70s exploitation––the weak acting and goofy dialogue are all part of the intended package. Sure, I considered that. Then I remembered movies like Black Dynamite and Planet Terror, flicks that held up a mirror to the 70s exploitation film with a certain degree of hipness, of self-awareness.
