Unfortunately, this formulaic retro action throwback doesn't deliver on any front. All the B-movie tropes are plentifully applied, but none have the gleeful absurdity and guilty satisfaction of Stallone's beat 'em ups or Statham's own Crank cycle.

Sylvester Stallone writes a script that's aimed at cramming as many testosterone-fueled confrontations as possible without giving the film a backbone to hold it up when it falters.

Gary Fleder's direction and Sylvester Stallone's script is at best sloppy like that and at worst downright offensive.

... a summation of action scenes, almost without rhyme or reason. [Full review in Spanish]
October 10, 2014
Statham is not the English Clint Eastwood yet, but if someone fancied calling him Dirty Jason... who knows?
April 23, 2014
Oh, and did I mention that Sylvester Stallone adapted the screenplay for this from a novel? Because that.

The climax is a muddle and borderline preachy
December 11, 2013
It's a derivative and incoherent exercise that provides another opportunity for Jason Statham to play the same type of vigilante character that he's essentially kept repeating for more than a decade.
December 10, 2013
The plot is too foreordained in every detail to be genuinely gripping, and the action far too shoddy in both conception and execution, which is even worse.
December 10, 2013
I can barely remember who lives or dies. I barely cared.

A Definite Miss
December 9, 2013
Skull-cracking and stylistic, it's a ferocious, profanity-filled revenge flick that should have gone direct-to-video.
December 6, 2013
A maniacally muddled and maudlin thriller, co-written and produced by Sly Stallone.
December 6, 2013
With a powerhouse cast and an anaemic script, this violent revenge thriller never quite gets off the ground.
December 6, 2013
Think a Sly Stallone-scripted action movie starring The Stath is a sure-fire winner? Think again.
December 6, 2013
Much like Stallone's Expendables entries, Homefront's premise is more appetising on paper than it is in execution.
December 5, 2013
Statham is on auto-pilot throughout and it suffers from an underwritten plot and lacklustre action sequences.
December 2, 2013
Homefront is only really compelling when it's exploring the hassles and complexities of being an overwhelmed small-time meth dealer, or when it makes good use of the local color of its backwoods Louisiana setting.
December 2, 2013
Although Franco's clearly enjoying himself, and Statham smashes faces with finesse, two warring films emerge, neither of them particularly convincing.
December 2, 2013
The screenplay for this violent retro schlock was written by Sylvester Stallone, and the movie feels like something out of the early eighties.
