"A long time ago I was one of you. You're all brand new and perfect. No mistakes, no regrets. People look at you and think of how wonderful your future will be. They want you to be something special... like a... a doctor or a lawyer. I hate to tell you this, but if you grow up here, you're more likely to wind up selling your bodies on the streets, or shooting dope from dirty needles in a bus stop. And if you're successful, you'll make money selling junk to crackheads. And you won't think twice about killing someone's wife, because you won't even know what was wrong in the first place. Or, maybe... you'll end up like me - a hobo with a shotgun! I hope you can do better. You are the future."
I think it's a problem for this film that Rutger Hauer is a good actor, he brings gravitas to the role. This does not sit will with some of the violence, some of the scenes that are supposed to be nasty (such as the school bus) end up being loathsome instead.
Should have had Brian Downey as the hobo, and Dieter Laser as Drake!
With better manuscript and direction, this could have been really good. Now I only wanted to see it because it was said to be bloodier than "Machete". Somewhat strange and some illogical things the characters made annoyed me.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
