Synopsis: A widowed ex-DEA agent retires to what he thinks is a small peaceful town for the sake of his 10 year old daughter. The only problem is the peace doesn't last.

Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder. Izabelka Vidovic.

I decided to watch Home Front because once and a while I like to a watch a movie and not have to figure out the fine plot details or think about what I am watching for that matter, so naturally I picked a movie staring Jason Statham and for an added bonus it was written by Sylvester Stallone.

From the very first scene, actions pours out of this movie. Reminiscent of most Statham movies but with Statham playing a protective father and somewhat of an emotional character, greatly added to the reality of the role. What was more interesting was the dynamic between Franco and Statham.

First, Franco's character looked like a real Meth-head and 100% believable. Second, there is only one fight scene with them in it, which is rather interesting given the genre of movie. Wynonna's Character was rather good at playing a meth whore and she deserves an Oscar for the garage scene...seriously I think at this point it represents her career...screwed.

As the plot develops it does lure you in and make you root for the good guys and the finale is typical but offers a refreshing and realistic climax.
