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]

“..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]
