Netflix Alert: Review – "Homefront"

  

     I’ve been waiting for this one.  I meant to go see this in the theatre when it initially came out, but couldn’t get the time.  The plot is simple.  Statham is an ex-cop that wanted to get away from it all, took his daughter, and moved into the country so that they could ride horses in the country.  They unfortunately chose a place where everyone has horrible southern accents and where James Franco’s character “Gator”, is a ruthless, feared, psycho meth dealer.  Of course paths cross, and Statham can’t escape becoming a target.

     From the very beginning of the movie, I noticed a common theme in all of Stathom’s movies.  There doesn’t seem to ever be a character that I think would ever beat him in a fight, accept maybe Expendables 3 when he goes toe to toe with Scott Atkins.  Other than that, never.  This movie is even worse.  Throughout the movie Stathom fights overweight trashy hillbillies.  There is rarely a suspenseful scene where you sit there and think, “Oh no, how’s he going to get out of this?”  Instead, you sit there and watch as he gets surrounded by like 8 guys, and you can’t wait to see them all get completely destroyed like characters in a video game.  Its awesome.

This fight in the beginning (which lasted maybe .5 seconds started it all…

   There were a few points in which the film dragged on a little too much, but with such a simple premise, they had to fill it with something.  I had no issue with the movie, my wife found it to be boring in some spots.  They did a good job of hiding Franco from looking like a little kid picking a fight with a grown man by portraying him as “crazy.”  If you’re in the mood to watch something that involves no thinking what-so-ever, definitely relax to this film.

Statham Shirt!

     The second of the two new shirts put out this week is the new Jason Statham shirt.  I’ve been trying to get the Statham shirt correct for some time now.  I could never get it right and the finished  product never looked like him.  This weekend, with a glass of good beer and some music, I sat down Friday night and finally got it right.  This shirt will go over well with any action fan!  This is available now in our Etsy and eBay stores right now.  It will be available on supersweetshirts.com in a few days.
