‘Homefront’ Review

Homefront James Franco Jason Statham
Open Road Films

A successful Jason Statham film requires a limited amount of cinematic resources: a stunt budget, a cartoon villain, a script with peppered with goons to punch in the face, and a Jason Statham. Hire a director who has streamed at least three Statham action movies off Netflix to cobble together a thin plot and — boom! — entertainment.

Perhaps because Oscar-nominated screenwriter/painter Sylvester Stallone took on writing duties, Statham's latest film, 'Homefront,' dares to opt out of the formula in favor of a character-driven crime story. A novel idea, but unfortunately, this film is a bore. Like Stallone's own' Bullet to the Head,' 'Homefront' believes it's cut from the same cloth as Walter Hill's 'Southern Comfort,' but it can barely muster up the thrills of an episode of 'MacGuyver.'

There are a lot of movies coming out this fall that you can get excited about. 'Thor 2,' 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' and 'Oldboy' among them. But, perhaps no movie holds our intense interest as much as 'Homefront' - the upcoming action movie written by Sylvester Stallone and starring Jason Statham and James Franco. There is no way we aren't going to love this movie and this exclusive 'Homefront' TV spot is further evidence of that.

‘Homefront’ Red-Band Trailer: The Ultimate Battle Between Jason Statham and James Franco

Homefront

We're not sure what excites us more about this new 'Homefront' trailer. Is it James Franco playing a lunatic meth dealer with a crazy Southern accent? Or is it the thought of his violent redneck character engaging in a life or death struggle with the eternally angry Jason Statham? In any case, 'Homefront' looks more like an '80s movie you'd find tucked away at a lonely mom and pop video store than a modern film production, which means we couldn't be more excited for it, whether it be good or bad.

‘Homefront’ Trailer: Jason Statham Takes Down James Franco

Homefront Trailer Jason Statham James Franco

'Homefront' sounds like the kind of movie Sylvester Stallone would have starred in thirty years ago. A retired DEA agent settles into the country, only to get on the wrong side of an insane drug dealer. Violence ensues, justice is delivered and so on and so forth. However, the elderly Stallone is only the screenwriter on 'Homefront,' with the leading role going to the reliably cool Jason Statham and the part of the villain going to ... James Franco? Yeah, we wouldn't believe it either if there wasn't a trailer proving it.
