'Homefront' Review

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.'

The world collectively chuckled last week as Kanye West revealed his ludicrous "Bound 2" music video, which co-starred his fiancee Kim Kardashian, who rode topless on a motorcycle. Get ready to laugh even harder as Seth Rogen and James Franco made a shot-for-shot remake of the "Bound 2" video on the set of their new movie, which gives new meaning to the lyric, "I wanna f--- you hard on the sink."

You don't come by Jason Statham's house without paying the price! The action star takes the lead in Open Road's first 'Homefront' clip, which sees him going head-to-head with James Franco, playing a meth dealer and small-town red-neck thug named Gator. With a face that screams, "I mean business," you just know shit's about to hit the fan.

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

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.

Of Course There Is a 'This Is the End' Gag Reel and Of Course It's Hilarious

If you've seen 'This Is the End' (or can just imagine a movie where Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel are all co-starring together), you can imagine what the outtakes must've been like. Six of the funniest dudes around just coming up with weird s--- to make each other laugh. And that's pretty much what the 'This Is the End' gag reel is - funny dudes making each other laugh.

'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.

You just can't hold James Franco down, despite roasting him on stage for Comedy Central. The 'This Is the End' star has a new project coming up, and we're not talking about another ball-buster comedy or even some indie flick where he plays James Dean, William S. Burroughs or something. No, this is an action movie with Jason Statham.

You didn't think Comedy Central's upcoming roast of celebrity multitasker James Franco would be the last we'd see of the 'This Is the End' star on TV, did you? Silly, you. The Franco will soon move to the small screen to host his own 'James Franco Presents' on the Ovation network, filling a desperate hole in the world to answer the question of how James Franco does James Franco. Plus, James Franco!
