    Poster art for "Safe."
  • A second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit, Luke Wright lives a numbing life of routine beatings and chump change...until the day he blows a rigged fight. Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever, leaving Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute, haunted by guilt, and tormented by the knowledge that he will always be watched, and anyone he develops a relationship with will also be killed. But when he witnesses a frightened 12-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action...and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war. Mei, he discovers, is no ordinary girl, but an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for the Triads as a "counter." He discovers she holds in her memory a priceless numerical code that the Triads, the Russian mob and a corrupt faction of the NYPD will kill for.

    Predictable and Outlandish...But an Enjoyable and Energetic Action Thriller
    Honestly, I have been a little sad that despite his acting talent, Jason Statham seems to have been reduced by Hollywood to a typecast that puts him in one mediocre action flick after the next. I know the man has talent judging from his movies in Europe but it seems as if Hollywood is so desperate for an action hero that this is all the work he gets offered here in the U.S.. Going to see “Safe” I was prepared for more of the same, and really, I was not expecting much. I was dragged to …

    Star Rating:         Is it just me, or are these Jason Statham action films becoming harder and harder to tell apart? They say to go with what you know, but blast it all, I need to know if this man is capable of something other than fight choreography and witty one-liners. Safe is yet another film that exploits his physicality and completely ignores his potential for actual acting. On the basis of just about every movie he has ever been in, filmmakers don’t regard …

    SAFE Is Everything You Expect from a Jason Statham Picture, But It Could've Been More
    Despite what some may think, smart action films are not an easy sell.  They require a script with some backbone, and that means a strong villain, some solid supporting players, a dashing but tarnished hero, and plenty of excellent stunt work.  The stakes should be easily identifiable by the audience, and all of the players need to be uniquely fit into their respective roles.  In other words, a bad guy without a clear and understandable goal can muck it all up in a real hurry, and …
