Another Jason Statham -movie with my son. My dear, calm, considerate, polite and sweet son admires Jason Statham.
Last Saturday we went to see Homefront. With Statham there was James Franco and Winona Ryder (and, of course, many others). The story was simple, a man (Phil Broker) wanted to be left alone and when he was not able to live in peace, he started to defend his home and his daughter. And he won them all, all those bad guys that tried to interfere.
Jason Statham has done many action movies. Well, obviously he is good at what he does, playing a hard-faced guy. He doesn’t smile much, at least in his movies. He should, he looks more handsome when he smiles. I saw that smile in Homefront a couple of times.
The screenplay of Homefront was written by another star, Sylvester Stallone. James Franco was okay as the bad guy, Morgan ‘Gator’ Bodine. Winona Ryder (as Sheryl Marie Mott) was also okay, but nothing special. What I like about James Franco is that he has eyes that seem to smile all the time, even if he’s not smiling.
All in all, Homefront was a basic action movie and it was better than I expected it to be. I’ve seen so many movies starring Jason Statham, that I’ve started to think that he’s actually quite cool. Should I be worried?
