Ronsaid on Friday, September 19, 2014 1:50:03 PMI just saw this on Netflix. and I liked the movie, I agree there are a few coincidences, but I thought the action was fun, the acting was good, event he little girl. I wish JS would create a franchise character we can identify him with, movie after movie like a Jason Bourne, or a Dirty Harry. It seems all his characters are just bad ass guys who have the same beats and look. I'd give it a little higher than a C, maybe a C+ or a B- For what is was, I though it was good.

Now about the movie.... It was a decent movie, in my opinion. Not great or award winning by any means. But I found it entertaining as I am a huge Statham fan, I have watched it more than a few times. I love the little girls "kick-ass" performance (yes, PUN INTENDED)!!

Most people don't understand the role of a film critic. Like a handicapper of horse races, I attach myself to writers I share the same likes and dislikes with.
When I see my B+ film you gave a C to, I get why. That's the deal. Over the years, you, Roger, Gene, and Professor Turan here, have saved me many dollars over the years.
PS. What IS a noob?
Paulsaid on Thursday, December 05, 2013 3:27:20 PMHomefront is a gem! Statham takes hisplace in forefront of action. Films. Stallone has been doing his best work ever these past couple of years, gets better with age. Plausible AMD believable plot. Those are not "twists". That's channelling how people really behave!
Max Barbersaid on Wednesday, December 04, 2013 3:44:20 AMDecently paced, run of the mill action flick. Nothing great. Nothing bad,either. Statham is dependable, if occasionally wooden. Stallone's script doesn't break any new ground, but its certainly solid.
Rikolussaid on Tuesday, December 03, 2013 10:13:02 PMGood Review. I had it slightly better, at C+ to B-.
My only gripe is that idiotic posts like Ronnie's should just be Deleted. You're too generous in your Reply.
Ronnie said on Saturday, November 30, 2013 11:57:31 AMRichard...your a noob. You think your criticisms are legit? Your just mad Jason makes more money than you. You don't know a good movie unless you watch a Barbie movie loser lol.
Reply from Richard Roeper It's "you're," not "your." But ooh, that loser comment is BRILLIANT.
Try watching the review again, maybe in slow motion so you can understand it.
