Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth star in this action-packed thriller about how far one man will go to protect his family. Widowed ex-DEA agent Phil Broker (Statham) retires to a quiet Southern town with his 10-year-old daughter and discovers that the idyllic setting is riddled with drugs and violence. When a riveting chain of events forces him to face off with psychotic local drug lord Gator Bodine (Franco), Broker must retaliate using the fearsome skills he hoped to keep in his past. From screenwriter Sylvester Stallone, Homefront is “an absolute blast! A thrill ride from start to finish!” (Chris Parente, FOX-TV)

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.
This almost feels like it could been 24: the movie with Statham playing a retired Jack Bauer. Unfortunately the story is really bloated with tons of characters who don't really matter in the story getting stuffed into the film. Franco is billed as the villain of the movie and but he really doesn't. He's just a low level drug dealer who contacts Statham's enemies to let him know where he is. After that he is pretty much a middle man character for the rest of the film.
Great actors like Winona Ryder, Frank Grillo and Kate Bosworth are wasted in the movie and don't do anything for large periods of story.
Should have had a lot more action and didn't need to be as long as it does. Movie really feels like it drags at points.
Usual Action Movie: Use the same plot as usual. Either Version A, in same locale or Version B, road trip style, or Version C, combination. Insert photogenic actor as the Protagonist, insert photogenic actor as the Antagonist, insert young female actor as the daughter-to-be-rescued, a beautiful actress as the pretty, intelligent, and pure love interest, and a beautiful actress as the Antagonist's pretty and skanky love interest. Hire a group of big and fit men to play thugs and fight and shoot and have a beef to be settled with. Insert actors to play law men with questionable ethics. Insert faithful friend actor. Film movie in a different location than the other movies.
I especially liked the girl's character. It's good to portray females, and children, as brave, resourceful people who do everything they can to help themselves and others. In the past, females and children in movies were often portrayed as passive helpless victims, often in a really heavy-handed, insulting way, whose only hope was to be rescued by a strong man. I also liked that in this movie, even very violent people can control their behavior to spare others from witnessing cruelty. Everyone needs good role models and movies are an excellent medium to show such models.
