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]

LATEST REVIEWS

DEATH DO US PART :

“..this is a nice one that hits the marks it needs to in just enough fashion..”
by Chuck Conry [ZombiesDontRun.net]

NO GOD, NO MASTER :

“..No God, No Master, his newest work - indicate that Green is both a capable filmmaker and a clear history buff..”
by Danny King [Village Voice]

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE :

“..one of the strongest films yet from Jim Jarmusch..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

JOE :

“..it's a shame the film lacks the same subtlety and force. Joe is about starting over before it's too late..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PERFECT SISTERS :

“..much of the film is slipshod, but the domestic crisis (Mom's new boyfriend is an abusive creep) packs a real wallop, as does the solution..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

RIO 2 :

“.."Rio 2" is not what I would call Amazon prime, but it's got enough silly songs and daffy critters to keep the little ones happy..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

OCULUS :

“..for all its genre delights, Oculus is little more than a well-tooled creepshow..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

DRAFT DAY :

“..while "Draft Day" is a very agreeable and predictable movie, it is also very timely..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 :

“..a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

BAD ASSES :

“..a completely predictable made-for-home video offering, but for those looking for a rather mindless ninety minutes of comic action, it can serve as a reliable time passer..”
by Matt Hough [Home Theater Forum]
