Description

A train pulls into the station it's the end of the line. A Hobo jumps from a freight car, hoping for a fresh start in a new city. Instead, he finds himself trapped in an urban hell. This is a world where criminals rule the streets and Drake, the cities crime boss, reigns supreme alongside his sadistic murderous sons, Slick & Ivan. Amidst the chaos, the Hobo comes across a pawn shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower. He dreams of making the city a beautiful place and starting a new life for himself. But as the brutality continues to rage around him, he notices a shotgun hanging above the lawn mower... Quickly, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this town is with that gun in his hand and two shells in it's chamber.

Movie Critics
New York Times
"Karim Hussain's cinematography has an artisanal graininess; the opening sequence of the carefree hobo riding a freight is actually quite lovely, like something lifted from a Hal Ashby film."
Mike Hale (6 May 2011, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is Hauer's film and he grabs it two-handed."
Matt Glasby (7 Jul 2011, )
Uncut
4 stars out of 5 -- "Hauer manages to be weirdly, grandly, moving."
Damien Love (1 Aug 2011, )
