Film Review: Homefront

Posted in Film, Reviews
By Sam Bathe on 6 Dec 2013

Moving to a quiet town to bring up his young daughter, it’s not long, however, that former DEA agent Phil Broker gets tangled up with local druglord ‘Gator’ Bodine.

Homefront is hit and miss. While at times the film makes the most of its B-movie fun, it’s not long before it starts crossing the line into being ridiculous. Homefront lacks any kind of subtlety, not helped by a painfully stereotypical score. There’s an interesting idea in the p lot, but it’s terribly written by Sylvester Stallone, and director Gary Fleder can’t make the most of charismatic performances from Jason Statham and James Franco either.
