When you need a slice of kickass, you can’t go wrong with a little bit of vitamin Statham. The man is cinematic violence in a British package, but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have a softer side to him. After all, in Homefront he’s a widowed man raising a daughter. Who also happens to be an asskicker.
Hoo boy, guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
“Homefront” is an action movie about a widowed ex-DEA agent who retires to a small town for the sake of his 10-year-old daughter. The only problem is he picked the wrong town.
Skop, skiet en donner. looks like a simple formula, told Statham-style. With a script from none other than fellow Expendable Sylvester Stallone , Homefront looks like some decent action. I’m not expecting much more than that, but with these kinds of films, I don’t want have to. Plus who would have thought that James Franco could be a proper menace when he uses a stereotypical redneck accent?
It’s out in November, and also stars Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth. Gary Fleder directs.
