  • Gabe Toro

    Ultimately of course, this is Statham’s show, and as always he doesn’t disappoint.

  • Steven Rea

    Luckily, Statham is up to the task. Which is a surprise, because he's never, ever done anything like this before.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    A few months from now, no one will remember it, but Homefront isn't made for the long-haul. It's assembled simply for the 100 minutes when the viewer is in theater and, on a certain level, that's sufficient.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Steven Boone

    Sylvester Stallone can write entertaining formula action scripts like a demon, but he often hands them over to hack directors who don't know how to extract the pulp and the juice from them. On that score, Homefront is better than average. Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    [Jason Statham] has some nice, relaxed moments with onscreen daughter Izabela Vidovic, and gets to fulfil half his audience's fantasies in wiping the smirk from James Franco's face.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    This meat-and-potatoes B-thriller stays modest and grounded: compared with the noisy excesses of higher-budgeted action flicks, it has a kind of crude integrity.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The movie is as blunt an instrument as the poster, but it’s also crammed with enough moving parts and unexpected distractions (Winona Ryder as a “meth whore”) to make it an indefensibly enjoyable piece of exploitation hackwork.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Annlee Ellingson

    [A] contemporary B-movie Western with designs on stylistic flair.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Statham and Franco, both well-known sleepwalkers on camera, seem more animated than usual. Suspend belief, and you’ll find Homefront predictable but entertaining.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Louis Black

    The film is mostly predictable, but throws a few curveballs and ends up being surprisingly entertaining, if not at all outstanding.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The new Jason Statham movie Homefront aims to be retro, greasy comfort food but despite its lowly ambitions, there’s barely enough spice here to merit a decent burp.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Isn’t Statham’s best — or most brutal — work, but it’s not bad.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    At its core, Homefront is thoroughly generic, a grim exercise in formula whose action sequences are edited into a frenetic, incoherent blur, especially the awful opening setpiece.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Despite being named “Gator Bodine,” Franco seems like something Statham would scrape off his boots. Put it this way: Franco needs a baseball bat to be intimidating; Statham just needs to be Statham.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Homefront has craft and humor behind it, but not much in the way of inspiration. Think of a dessert with lots of calories and no nutrition.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    This is a well-made thriller traveling over awfully familiar turf.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Only completists need check in with Homefront. The rest of us can just stay home. Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    The basic ingredients of a throwback action movie are all there; what’s missing is action and style.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    An unfathomably airless B-movie that betrays its USP by spreading the thrills too thinly. You can see why Stallone had second thoughts.

    Total Film Full Review
  • David Hughes

    Another shake-and-bake Stath special, boasting the requisite punchy-fighty action and some pleasing sleaziness from Franco and Bosworth, but it's ponderously handled by director Fleder.

    Empire Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The violence in Homefront is violence purely for entertainment's sake.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    A thoroughly boilerplate bayou actioner, with one notable feature. It’s got good villains – nasty, delirious, stupid villains, among them Franco and Ryder – and for that it’s almost worth seeing. Almost.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Why introduce two female characters — played by Kate Bosworth and Winona Ryder, both excelling at trashy desperation — if the script’s ultimately going to forget them? The worst sin is visited upon Statham: Sure, those fists fly, but his poetry has become a chopped-up hash.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Statham is always good as the silent butt-kicking type and is fine here. Franco, as is often the case, seems to be acting in his own private movie and having a grand old time doing so; results for the audience may vary. Bosworth is good, scary skinny and wired for trouble as a menacing mom.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Boston University product Gary Fleder (“Kiss the Girls”) directs the action with grungy efficiency, and the movie does hook us with a certain lurid anticipation of just how far things might escalate.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Homefront is what "Breaking Bad" may have resembled had Sylvester Stallone written the TV show.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Homefront is done in by uninspired action scenes in which Statham’s athletic prowess is rendered unwatchable by hyper-editing, a shameful reliance on child-in-peril cliches to move the story forward, and so many loose ends that you wonder if 20 minutes were accidentally cut out from the movie.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Line to line, Stallone has a particularly numbing penchant for the f-word. But the key f-word in Homefront is "familiar."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The Jason Statham vehicle Homefront is such a generic tough-guy-against-the-odds ’80s style actioner that you’d swear Sly Stallone starred in it. He did, back in the day. Or versions of it. This one, Stallone just scripted.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Abhimanyu Das

    The material plays out like a particularly busy episode of Sons of Anarchy, possessing a peculiar joylessness that's anathema to the success of films like this.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Homefront is sufficiently silly and low-down to be entertaining on a certain marginal level, but it wouldn't appear that those involved, with the possible exception of Franco, approached this with the idea that they might be making good trash; it looks too elaborate and costly for that and the script exhibits no self-aware humor.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    What sounds like a veritable B-movie wet dream — with that master of the subzero scowl, Jason Statham, starring in a screenplay written by Sylvester Stallone — turns out to be considerably less than the sum of its parts.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It could have been crazy-good trash.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Director Gary Fleder seems to sometimes suspect Homefront could pass as comedy.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    A disappointing mess of a genre flick.
