Storyline

Phil Broker is a former DEA agent who has gone through a crisis after his actions against a biker gang went horribly wrong ,and it cost the life of his boss's son. He is recently widowed and is left with a 9 year old daughter, Maddy. He decides to quit the turbulent and demanding life of the DEA for Maddy's sake and retires to a small town. His daughter fights off a boy who is bullying her at school, and this sets in motion a round of events that end in his direct confrontation with the local Meth drug lord. His past with the biker gang also enters the arena, making matters more complex. But he has a mission in his mind to protect his daughter, and he is ready to pay any cost that it demands.

Goofs

The shotgun Broker grabs appears to be a Benelli M4 12 gauge, a semi-auto shotgun (you can tell this by the way Broker loads it by pulling the charging handle on the side of the receiver). Yet every time Broker fires the shotgun you can hear the sound of someone racking the slide of a pump action shotgun. See more »

Nothing really new, but above-average entertainment
27 February 2014 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Single ex-agent with a child, settling down in a new closed place where a self-claimed boss has set his own rules - there are (and definitely will be) lots of similar stories, about past, present and future. As it is difficult to add a new angle or approach, it is usually acting and solution of issues that counts, are they logical, or just ridiculous and unrealistic. Homefront has evidently more pluses than minuses - pleasant performances by "the good guys" - Jason Statham as a caring but tough father Phil Broker and Izabela Vidovic as sensitive but tough Maddy, realistic atmosphere, catchy fights, meaningful use of violence... True, "the bad guys" are too plain, the ending has predictable structure and elements, and there are scenes not necessary for the general course of events, but absence of dudikoffs-seagals and torpid chases and fights is already a valuable feature. It is nice to see that Statham as an action hero has followed in the footsteps of e.g. Mel Gibson and Bruce Willis.

All in all, a good and proper-time (1,5 hours) thriller. Not a conceptual one, but no flop either.
