2.5 of 4

“..Statham is up to the task. Which is a surprise, because he's never, ever done anything like this before..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..mostly, Franco just seems to be biding his time here, bored with the part and the movie that contains it..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
1 of 4

“..mix a random cast like this and you should get some kind of weird alchemical reaction. Instead, the result is an inert gas..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..Jason Statham squares off against poor white trash in an old Sylvester Stallone script that should have stayed on the shelf..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 5

“..is an action movie born in the wrong generation, but it's still a fun and wild watch thanks to Jason Statham's warpath through a sleepy Southern town..”
by Matt Donato [We Got This Covered]
1.5 of 4

“..Homefront falls apart pretty quickly, its rote repetition of '80s action tropes coming across less like inspired riffing and more like unimaginative by-the-numbers moviemaking..”
by Abhimanyu Das [Slant Magazine]
2.5 of 4

“.."Homefront" isn't awful. It moves along quickly enough, it's interesting to catch some familiar faces among the cast..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
