It’s been a good month for anyone subscribed to Netflix, as the service has been really piling on some excellent content since day one. Whether you’re looking for laughs with the teen comedy Superbad, seeking out some mob drama with classics like The Departed and Goodfellas, or looking to kindle some nostalgia with Robin Williams’ Hook, you won’t be disappointed with what the platform has available in January so far.
However, tomorrow has a particularly exciting new addition to the Netflix library, and it may be worth taking a look at if you’re a fan of crime thrillers or action star Jason Statham. Written by Sylvester Stallone and directed by Gary Fleder, Homefront follows a former DEA agent (Statham) who has sought out a quieter life with his daughter in a small Louisiana town. When a crazed drug lord (James Franco) starts making trouble for him, though, he’s forced back into a life of violence he thought he had left behind.
Critics had mixed feelings about Homefront when it released back in 2013, landing it a middle-of-the-road 43% on Rotten Tomatoes. The biggest complaint about the film was that it wasn’t original in any way, but there was nevertheless plenty of praise for the performances of its large cast, which includes other big names like Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth.
All that being said, Homefront may not be your thing, but you can be certain that Netflix has added a ton of other great stuff this month, so you have no shortage of content to look through. If you’re wanting to catch up on stuff that might be leaving the service soon, however, you can head through here to see the full list to help you plan accordingly.
