Concrete Playground

An action film so cack-handed it borders on parody.

Perhaps one of these days Statham will stop making the same movie over and over and try something new.

Character development and storyline are treated as inconveniences to be tossed aside at the earliest opportunity.

Jason Statham's latest actionpalooza "Safe" is unsuitably hilarious, although that's probably not the film's intended reaction.

Safe is so ham-fistedly BAD on every conceivable level that it bordered on entertaining.

The movie's too heavy for its own good, even for a strongman like Statham.

It never feels like more than a second-tier video game brought to life.

When your audiences doesn't care if the child lives or dies, you know your movie's got problems.

The thoroughly mediocre Safe provides little more than an excuse for Statham to do what Statham does better than anyone else: look stern while punishing bad guys. That's just not enough.

It's hard to swallow Statham, who spent the Crank movies supercharging his last minutes of life, as a suicidal sad-sack, just as it's painful to see him yoked to a cute little girl in an obvious attempt to soften his image.

The 'Safe' in the title could refer to a plot point or the career choice Statham made by picking this movie.

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.

The massive body count is no compensation for a coherent story or memorable action.

None of this bears much or any resemblance to the real world, but the violence crunches, the editing snaps and the humorous one-liners pop at well-timed junctures.

Like too many of Jason Statham's recent star vehicles, "Safe" is an adequate solo act in need of better accompaniment.

The convoluted, goofy B movie lets down its hardworking star.

Jason Statham is the best thing going for a movie full of bad cliché-driven writing which offers absolutely nothing new to the action genre.

At the Movies (Australia)

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.

The occasional efficient action sequence means that 'Safe' never gets truly dull, but even Statham aficionados might feel short- changed by this one.

It sets the stage for the best cop drama since Heat... and ultimately proves unable to meet those expectations.
