Action Thriller - Like many other Jason Statham films, this is a violent action film
though there isn't as much of his martial arts moves as usual.
There's also a supporting cast of recognizable stars such as James
Franco, Winona Ryder, and Kate Bosworth. Constant language, sexual
content, and drug content in addition to the violence make the film
inappropriate for kids.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average It's adequately made and delivers as expected.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average On that score, "Homefront" is better than average.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average As modern-day Rambo, Statham does what he can with a thankless role, and he's still a charge when he's giving what-for to bullies.
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Average Thanks to such immoderate performances as hers, the whole movie has a pulpy, purple, over-the-topness to it, which makes it kind of a guilty pleasure, in a low-rent, Southern Gothic way.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 83 moviegoers:
TEENS: The male and female reviews are about the same. Just over half loved "Homefront" but, unfortunately, the remaining half only felt it was an average movie (enjoyable but nothing special).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two males loved it, two enjoyed it very much and one rated it just average. The four females all rated it just average.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are very close to the same. Just over half rated "Homefront" extremely high. Half of the remaining reviews indicate they enjoyed this movie very much. The remaining twenty-percent, or so, only felt it was an average movie, which is still a movie they enjoyed.
