Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth star in this action-packed thriller about how far one man will go to protect his family. Widowed ex-DEA agent Phil Broker (Statham) retires to a quiet Southern town with his 10-year-old daughter and discovers that the idyllic setting is riddled with drugs and violence. When a riveting chain of events forces him to face off with psychotic local drug lord Gator Bodine (Franco), Broker must retaliate using the fearsome skills he hoped to keep in his past. From screenwriter Sylvester Stallone, Homefront is “an absolute blast! A thrill ride from start to finish!” (Chris Parente, FOX-TV)

Common Sense Says
Drugs, violence, and strong language in clumsy crime movie.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Homefront is an action-crime movie about a widowed ex-Interpol agent who takes his young daughter to a small town in Louisiana to start life over. Thanks to a run-in with a bully, he inadvertently becomes involved in a violent, escalating feud with meth dealers and killers. The movie is very violent, with the young girl in peril, and abducted, in several scenes. There's also frequent fighting and/or shooting, with dead bodies and blood. Aside from images of drug labs and discussions about dealing drugs, some characters are shown to be addicts. Teens use meth in one scene. Language is very strong, with frequent use of all variations of "f--k." There's one fairly graphic sex scene, though no nudity is visible. With a screenplay by Sylvester Stallone, this one may appeal to teen Expendables fans, though Homefront is not nearly as much fun.
