The Playlist - Gabe Toro
Ultimately of course, this is Statham’s show, and as always he doesn’t disappoint.

Chicago Sun-Times - Richard Roeper
This is a well-made thriller traveling over awfully familiar turf.

Only completists need check in with Homefront. The rest of us can just stay home.

Slant Magazine - 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.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service - 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.
