Common Sense Note

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.

Sexual Content

The main villain has rough sex with his girlfriend. No nudity is shown. She is shown leaning over the hood of a car, with him behind her. They are also shown passionately kissing. A quick scene takes place in a strip bar, but dancers are shown clothed.

Violence

Much of the violence involves a young girl. She is on the scene of a violent, deadly shootout, though she mostly hides and it's assumed that her father will protect her. She is briefly abducted. The movie opens with a violent chase, shootout, and explosion at the scene of a drug-bust gone wrong. A character is shot multiple times, with lots of blood. The bad guy bashes a teen in the knees with a baseball bat. The main character fights a great deal, but mainly in self-defense; he's a skilled fighter and can usually beat up several men at once. The main character is hit in the face with a lead pipe and briefly tortured in a tank of water. A character is stabbed with a pitchfork. A young girl beats up a bully on the school playground.

Language

Language is very strong and frequent, including "f--k," "motherf--ker," "s--t," "p---y," "ass," "hell," "bitch," and "whore."

Social Behavior

Though the movie itself is very violent, and puts a young girl in peril, it articulates a non-violent philosophy; the main character prefers not to fight and only fights in self-defense. The movie takes a dim view of small-town, Southern life, depicting many of the residents as drug users, dumb rednecks, and lowlifes.

Consumerism

iPhones are shown throughout.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main villain is a drug dealer, and a secondary character is a drug addict. A meth lab is shown, with large quantities of crystals in plastic bags. Some teens are shown smoking meth in one scene. A character is shown smoking cigarettes.
