It’s not your usual Statham film
“Transporter” rocketed Statham’s name as a well rounded action star. Since then, most of his action films have felt the same, just with a different title. That was my mind set going into watch this film. “Homefront”, isn’t your usual Statham film, and it’s nice to see it play out the way it did. A change of pace for Statham movies, and hopefully a turning point for the actor. But let’s keep things simple: Story: Good Acting: Good Action: Very Good Pacing: Good If you’re looking for a good action film with a lot of heart, watch this. It’s not bad.
A real “guilty pleasure”
I enjoyed this film. But, to be fair, they have been making this specific type of film since the 70s and I enjoyed them then, I enjoy them now. (Back in the day, this would have been a Charles Bronson film, or Chuck Norris film, or a Lee Marvin film). No I will not mislead you or tell you untruths. This is not an original story. It is a specific story which, depending on the actors and the direction, either works or does not work. Films like this never make it to the Oscars and often they don’t do well in reviews either. But they can be fun. If you read the other reviews you already know the backstory — the reason this specific formula was resurrected from the Script Graveyard and given the A-List treatment — it was written/developed by Sly Stallone. Sly is too slick and too smart to let any property sit idle, so he “slyly” (sorry) picked Statham to play the lead. Once again, before anyone takes exception, I will note that my review of Hummingbird — the first major film where Statham showed his acting “chops” — was very popular in this database, so I feel entitled to make a final call. Which is this — good movie. Could have been great, but it did OK, considering the part was not originally written for the actor who played the main role. And the heavies were (to be fair) just a tad over-written. I mean, if you have ever watched Justfied, you already know that the friendly overweight woman who runs the General Store in back mountain country is probably a serial killer. And the local deputy is corrupt and related to the judge. So, with such a rich assortment to draw upon, why import heavies? Final comment: I thought Izabela Vidovic as the daughter stole every scene she was in, most especially the opening (which arguably — and this is not unusual in action films — was the best single setup in the production) where she whips the snot out of a local bully who is twice her size after patiently and earnestly explaining to him that she warned him — twice.
