Homefront'is overtly predictable within the very first fifteen minutes. Sylvester Stallone's heavy handed screenplay is eerily familiar to all his previous good guy versus bad guy scenarios. Can we guess what happens at the end? The good guys always win - DUH!
The formula never changes. This time around, we have Jason Statham against evil motorcycle gangs, psychopath meth-head James Franco, and a supporting cast of rednecks, scumbags, and ignorant white trash. Statham doesn't have much to work with here. The dialogue is just 'plain old dumb and dated'. Stallone is trapped in a B Movie time warp of his own making. It stinks like rotten cheese from a 1970s Hollywood trash heap.
Homefront is such a bomb, It's ready to explode. You've been warned. Watch it at your own risk!
