We were fortunate enough to attend an advance screening of “Homefront” in Boston, Massachusetts yesterday, November 20, 2013 and here is our short and sweet and spoiler-free review for you.

Jason Statham plays former DEA agent Phil Broker whose past catches up with him when he tries to start a new life with his daughter Maddy. They move to the quiet town Rayville in Lousiana when Maddy is confronted with a bully at her school whose parents are big trouble.

We have to say nothing prepared us for the opening scene of the film. It was so unexpected and puzzled us that we thought we were watching a completely different film. None of the trailers and clips released so far hinted towards any of that, so we really enjoyed the element of surprise.

The plot was easy to follow yet unpredictable in every way. Each action resulted in a reaction that complicated everything and made the overall situation for everyone involved worse. And that led to some very amusing scenarios in between which distinguished the characters’ motives wonderfully.

We also found that the many action-packed and sometimes very brutal scenes were well played out by the cast. Needless to say that Jason Statham showed them all who the boss was even though he had to take some beating himself for a short time. But in the end we knew he would come out alright because he was… well, Jason Statham.

And then there were these very sweet and emotional moments between Jason Statham and his on-screen daughter Izabela Vidovic, which balanced out everything heavy and dark in the film just like sunlight on a gloomy day. Their wonderful chemistry was without a doubt the heart of the story.

Our conclusion is that the simple story line surprised us with its many unforeseen layers throughout the film, and the intriguing main characters were portrayed by a terrific cast which harmonized perfectly on the big screen. Especially James Franco, Frank Grillo, Kate Bosworth and Winona Ryder had our full attention when we weren’t busy with admiring Jason Statham’s mad fighting skills.

So we give “Homefront” a 7/10 rating because we would have loved to see more personal interaction between the characters, and a 10/10 for the breathtaking filming locations in Louisiana which gave the film itself personality.
