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.

Rolling Stone

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

Homefront makes a familiar scenario fresh, propelled by Jason Statham's Phil Broker.

By making Statham a regretful lawman, it neutralizes his main talent, effectively neutering him. It also telegraphs the kind of mostly watered-down movie we're about to see.

What sets the movie apart is the performance of Franco. His turn as Gator elevates the affair.
