Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of director Gary Fleder and screenwriter Sylvester Stallone's Homefront, starring Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth, Rachelle Lefevre, Frank Grillo and Clancy Brown. The action drama comes to Blu-ray on March 11th.
Synopsis: 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.
The Blu-ray release of Homefront is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround, and features a series of Deleted Scenes.
Nothing says patriotic American quite like... Jason Statham....
Seriously, why would they choose him when he's only capable of speaking in his super bad ass British accent? I clearly don't buy him as an American, and I find him hard to take seriously as a loving father as well. The only reason I'll be checking this out is to see Franco's seemingly over-the-top villain, and to check out the screenplay which was written by Sly Stallone.
This was a fun flick that will play much better on home video. This is basically Statham beating the holy hell out of a bunch of rednecks. Oh and by the way, it's mentioned in the movie that he's not American...if you saw the film it's pretty obvious. If your a fan of Statham this is a must see.
