Home front is the action movie about a widowed ex-DEA agent who retires to a small town for of his 10 year old daughter. the only problem is he picked the wrong town. “Homefront” stars Jason Statham as former drug enforcement agent, Phil Broker, a family man who moves off the grid with his daughter, to a seemingly quiet bayou backwater to escape his troubled past. Franco seems to be having fun as the almost-mustache-twirling villain, while Statham just goes around punching and kicking people, because that’s what he does. And then we just sorta zoned out until we started wondering where Winona Ryder and Frank Grillo are.A former DEA agent (Jason Statham) heads to the hills with his daughter to get away from the dangers of the job only to find a small town terrorized by a meth-head gang leader (James Franco).
