An action film so cack-handed it borders on parody.
| Original Score: 2/5
It ain't too smart, it ain't too sophisticated, but it does have its charm and is entertaining enough for what it is: an action-packed, B-movie experience.
| Original Score: 3/5
Character development and storyline are treated as inconveniences to be tossed aside at the earliest opportunity.
Safe is an exceptional Jason Statham B-movie that managed to sneak through the cracks during its theatrical release.
| Original Score: 7.5/10
Perhaps one of these days Statham will stop making the same movie over and over and try something new.
| Original Score: 2/4
Editing is wonky, and the story leaves much to be desired, but Jason Statham genuinely shines in this rugged, violent action-thriller, with a body count that rivals classic John Woo.
| Original Score: 7/10
Jason Statham's latest actionpalooza "Safe" is unsuitably hilarious, although that's probably not the film's intended reaction.
| Original Score: 4/10
Overcomes its formulaic concept and delivers the best damned film of Jason Statham's career.
| Original Score: 9/10
[Jason] Statham blasts his way through his biggest body count in this satisfying, one-note action film designed very specifically for Statham fans who know his acting limits as well as he does.
Has a distinctly old-school Steven Seagal-circa-Out for Justice vibe.
The usually stone-faced Statham actually emotes a bit here and there. You kinda get a nice warm vibe right before he kills about 20 to 30 people. Then, repeat.
| Original Score: C+
Had the product (and Safe is, above all else, Hollywood product) reached a little higher, its title might have seemed coolly ironic. Instead, it inadvertently represents truth in advertising.
Easily one of the best action films I've seen in a decade and firmly cements Statham's status as this generation's coolest, kick-tail action megastar.
| Original Score: 8/10
When your audiences doesn't care if the child lives or dies, you know your movie's got problems.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Statham's character is complicated and interesting, and the '70s feel comes from a sense of hopelessness in the face of corruption.
| Original Score: 3/4
Not only does Safe feature bone crunching, nut busting, gun popping action as dispensed by one of the genre's great practitioners, but it does so with fresh energy and creativity that is enough to distract from its more stale elements.
I want and action film to be bad-ass, well directed, and to give me an adrenaline rush. And on those terms, this film more than succeeds
Like so many action films these days the film is over-edited and under-plotted, and we've seen Statham's tough guy character many times before.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
In any language this is exhilarating stuff.
Safe is so ham-fistedly BAD on every conceivable level that it bordered on entertaining.
| Original Score: 1/5
