“Sylvester Stallone can write entertaining formula action scripts like a demon, but he often hands them over to hack directors who don’t know how to extract the pulp and the juice from them. On that score, “Homefront” is better than average. Gary Fleder directs Stallone’s adaptation of the Chuck Logan novel like he gives a damn. Maybe too much of a damn: This is one loud, lip-smacking movie. The opening action sequence is a roaring collision of Paul Greengrass hyper-realism and Road Runner physics involving enough ammo to silence the Lord’s Resistance Army, plus an undercover narc Jason Statham on an acrobatic Harley, his shoulder-length mullet wig flapping on the breeze.” -Steven Boone
