The one thing I knew about ‘Homefront’ before I watched it was the, originally, Sylvester Stallone was attached to the project and had notions of turning it into part of his ‘Rambo’ franchise. However, as he was getting on in age, he passed on it, handing it over to his Expendables co-star, Jason Statham. So, meet a hybrid of Rambo and Jason – ‘Jambo!’

Here, the ‘Stath’ drops his attempts at putting on an American accent and plays an (oddly British) DEA agent who moves to a small town with his daughter to escape some particularly nasty drug lords. However, Jambo, never being one to shy away from trouble, soon finds himself at odds with the local rednecks (and yet more drug-type nasties). These come in the form of James Franco and Winona Ryder, both of who don’t seem to put as much menace in their performances as their acting abilities dictate they could have done.

Don’t expect too much ‘Transporter-esque’ punching and kicking in the fight scenes. It’s more on a par of what you’d see in your average Arnie/Sly action movie of the eighties. Plus there’s quite a few clichés the movie adheres to, i.e. Stath’s black best friend (and we all know what happens to black best friends in Hollywood), plus the fact that Stath is a single parent who obviously meets the one beautiful, single woman in the town who’s totally into single fathers.

If you’re a fan of the Stath in general, this will be a reasonable addition to your collection of his work. Plus seeing as some of his recent efforts (baring Expendables movies) have been a little ‘samey.’ Plus Homefront is also a solid little action thriller which should keep fans of the genre happy. Just don’t expect anything too groundbreaking, only some harmless head-slitting from our balding, British baddass.

Phil Broker (Jason Statham) is a former NARC who must now lay low due to getting the son of a crime boss killed. He is living in Louisiana which allows them to use a better soundtrack and crazy characters. His wife has passed on, he has a daughter Maddy (Izabela Vidovic) and a wanna be formulaic relationship with school counselor Susan Hatch(Rachelle Lefevre). He draws attention to himself while trying to live with a low profile, attention that endangers the life of both him and his daughter.

As art imitates life, James Franco plays the crazy bad guy and Winona Ryder his trashy girlfriend.

This is one of the better Statham films I have seen. It includes the usual tough guy talk, fighting, killings, chase scenes, and explosions. It also includes a colorful support cast with Kate Bosworth and Marcus Hester as realistic people. Bosworth was a pistol.

Worth seeing for fans of action films.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, garage sex, no nudity. Deals with meth manufacture and use.

A standard but decent Jason Statham flick, with the usual few fights, car chases, explosions and gruff dialogue.

This time Statham plays a jaded DEA agent, who moves for a more peaceful life with his daughter to a redneck filled community.

He falls foul of local criminal James Franco and thus a pretty simple plot is set a he faces off against the criminal and his gang through various confrontation's.

Pretty simple plot, reasonable action, this is nothing original, but it is well done and does exactly what it should.

Written by Sylvester Stallone, based on a novel, it's what you would expect from an action film starring Britain's hardman export.

I'm a massive Statham fan and am usually pretty satisfied with the action he puts out, homefront is yet again another cool action thriller, a simple and easy to get into story that's well paced out with lots of great action, some pretty bloody action too, lots of shoot outs and the usual cool martial arts fighting display Statham style! James Franco plays a cool villain too and the lovely Winona Ryder pops up for only for a small role though, this is all round great fun, great Blu-ray picture too and a couple of features with deleted scenes.

Well, with 'Sylvester Stallone' being involved in the films production and screenplay and
with 'Jason Statham' in the lead role.....there really is only one way the film can go.........
Former 'Drugs Enforcement Officer' 'Phil Broker's last job was to work undercover to
bring down the drug-dealing biker gang 'The Outcasts'
Two years have past, 'Phil' having lost his wife has sought to build a new life with daughter
'Maddy' away from the city in a seemingly sleepy backwater town.
Trouble seems to follow 'Broker' (Jason Statham) as one or two of the local rough-necks
chance their arm with the former 'agent'
Having worked in the fight against drugs 'Broker' recognises the signs that a drug operation
appears to be triving in the sleepy town.
'Kingpin' 'Gator Brodie' (James Franco) becomes wary of 'Broker' so much so he breaks into
their home find out who this guy is or was.
He finds out plenty from paperwork the ex-enforcement officer has kept and sends his lady
ex-biker 'moll' 'Sheryl' to the city to find those that have reason to get even with 'Broker'
'Gator' has put 'Broker' and daughter 'Maddy' in danger, the ex-agent now has to defend
the security of both himself and more importantly daughter 'Maddy.
A must for 'Jason Statham' fans, with several typical action sequences from 'Statham' leading
up to and explosive and action-packed finally.
Good Picture and Sound Quality Throughout.
Well worth a spin.
Special Features :-
* Standoff featurette.
* Gator featurette.
* Deleted Scenes.
