    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. show more

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