    Whatever you're thinking... rethink it

    Homefront belongs to a raggedy old breed of '90s homestead action thriller that refuses to go quietly into the night. Adapted from the Chuck Logan novel of the same name by none other than genre icon Sylvester Stallone, the film limps from one fight scene to the next without laying sufficient groundwork. The script is rife with cliché and bad dialogue, the story is both underdeveloped and unnecessarily convoluted, and the hometown heroes and backwoods criminals make one boneheaded decision after another. It doesn't help that the characters are reduced to two-dimensional caricatures, chief among them Jason Statham's umpteenth man of action -- hitting a rare trifecta as a former soldier, ex-cop and devoted single father -- and James Franco's southern fried cornbread kingpin, Gator Bodine. (One more time: Gator Bodine.) More troubling? The split-second beatdowns, splashy shootouts and 'splodey bits are as slick and improbable as they are overly choreographed and brutally edited... which would be all well and good if Stallone and director Gary Fleder subscribed to the Tenets of Big Dumb Fun. Particularly #7: Thou shalt not aim so high whilst firing so low. Homefront is Big Dumb Fun minus the fun, taking itself much too seriously while pushing its action too far over the top.

    3.5 stars If you are a fan of Jason Statham movies you will enjoy this movie. The screen play written by Sylvester Stallone and directed by Gary Fleder is a well paced crime thriller with a familiar plot. Phil Broker (Jason Statham) will go to any lengths to protect his young daughter from the local psychotic drug dealer, Gator Bodine (James Franco), whose nephew has ignited a feud by bullying her on the playground. Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth give believable performances as Bodine's girlfriend and drug addicted sister. Blu-ray, dvd, digital copy with limited special features 2.40:1 aspect ratio

    Jason Statham does a magnificent job as an ex-DEA agent who retires after a drug bust gone bad. He retires to a small town in Louisiana and wants to live a quiet life. His daughter is taught "how to defend herself" and punches out a school bully. Things escalate and word gets out to the motorcycle drug group that Statham is in town. Great pace, great action. Daughter shows a strong will and then turns into a wall flower at the end. Could have made her more consistent. Clever setup for the final scene. I would recommend it. On par with the Equalizer(Denzel Washington)

    There's something about the quiet setting of this community that, from the beginning of the movie puts you on alert. Then, just as you're trying to figure that out, a young girl takes down the class bully. ...enter her father. But wait, the ride is just beginning, and you can't call the sheriff... he's not being paid to help.

    Jason Statham was his usual cool self kicking butt. I like his father role teaching his daughter to protect herself and warning her aggressor. I felt like the school should have stood behind her. It would be great if other children these days were taught to be respectful of others but able to protect themselves as she does.

    Homefront was written by Stallone but he decided to let Jason Statham star instead and it was a great decision. Statham plays it cool calm and collected throughout but when it's time to protect his daughter, nothing can stand in his way. He handles the action scenes with ease. The pace and story are top notch,

    If your a Jason Stratham fan, you should enjoy this movie. It's got some atypical moments from what you'd normally expect for this actor, as well as the usual skillful butt kicking. It's an interesting variation on the bad guys figuring out a good guys former identity.
