Consensus: While it boasts a capable cast, the disappointingly dull Homefront hearkens back to classic action thrillers without adding anything to the genre.

The screenplay for this violent retro schlock was written by Sylvester Stallone, and the movie feels like something out of the early eighties.

Everyone cast against type. Everyone breathtakingly bad, reciting dialogue by Sylvester Stallone that begs for a "mute" button.
