The car chases aren't done especially well, but overall, Homefront delivers the enjoyment you'd expect from a shoot-'em-up.

I can barely remember who lives or dies. I barely cared.
December 6, 2013
A maniacally muddled and maudlin thriller, co-written and produced by Sly Stallone.
December 5, 2013
Fleder - a dab hand with knotty, workable pulp - proves admirably patient in revealing character and place, and it helps that those laying siege to our hero's self-timbered abode never quite react in the way expected of goons in a Jason Statham movie.
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.

'Homefront' just isn't the Southern-fried smackdown it should have been
November 27, 2013
The deeper we go into this story, the more ridiculous the coincidences and plot twists.
November 27, 2013
Everyone cast against type. Everyone breathtakingly bad, reciting dialogue by Sylvester Stallone that begs for a "mute" button.
November 27, 2013
By making Statham a regretful lawman, it neutralizes his main talent, effectively neutering him. It also telegraphs the kind of mostly watered-down movie we're about to see.
November 27, 2013
Stallone plopping Statham in this bore feels like an alpha setting up his successor to fail, like Zeus swallowing up his challengers before they force him into retirement.
November 27, 2013
Homefront aims to be retro, greasy comfort food but despite its lowly ambitions, there's barely enough spice here to merit a decent burp.
November 27, 2013
There's something almost refreshing about a movie that delivers exactly what's expected of it.
November 27, 2013
[It] isn't Statham's best - or most brutal - work, but it's not bad.
November 27, 2013
Fleder, who is a pretty standard button-masher as an action director, actually shows infectious relish and nuance in depicting Statham's slow return to his violent ways.
November 27, 2013
Homefront is ridiculously overdone.
November 27, 2013
Ryder rockets to such heights of emoting that she looks like she could black out from lack of oxygen.
November 27, 2013
There's little in the way of character, visual style, or suspense.
November 27, 2013
The basic ingredients of a throwback action movie are all there; what's missing is action and style.
November 26, 2013
[Statham's] paired with a precocious adolescent daughter and an adorable kitten that only accentuate his charm.
November 26, 2013
"Homefront" is hard not to like and impossible to respect.
