Homefront trailer: Jason Statham edges toward human characters

So, even though this opens in the U.S. and Canada tomorrow, I am embargoed from posting my review till next Monday, because the film doesn’t open here in the U.K. till next Friday, December 6th. But I’m gonna tell you right here that the movie is surprisingly not horrible, and has a few elements that are actually quite intriguing. Including a Jason Statham who continues to move away from mere thuggishness toward creating genuinely human characters (who still beat the shit outta people). If he keeps this up, he’s gonna end up being my boyfriend someday.

I know. I’m amazed as well.

US/Canada release date: Nov 27 2013 | UK release date: Dec 6 2013

    As you know, I’ve quite liked some of Statham’s relatively comic roles, but haven’t been impressed by his more recent work. (What my wife calls “sentimental thuggery”, in the manner of Raymond Chandler.) Thought the trailer looked pretty generic, but who knows…

    The film is pretty generic. Just not as terrible as it might have been. :->
