Critic Reviews for Not Safe For Work

All Critics (2)

A brief, blunt exercise in thriller cinema, the feature is a mean but not entirely lean machine, though Johnston puts in a heroic effort trying to build tension inside a limited space.

Audience Reviews for Not Safe For Work


Entertaining despite its low budget production and unsung cast. Not Safe For Work is a fine thriller up building suspense greatly to its satisfying ending.

A simple and effective thriller that's probably one of the easiest movies to watch that I've seen in a long time. The film barely scrapes 70 minutes in running time, so it's obvious that the film pretty much shoots out of the gate running as there is simply no time to waste for needless exposition. The film being so short, obviously, means there's not a lot of room for character development, making sure that the characters themselves aren't one-dimensional husks. But, surprisingly, it's not that this film had great characters, but they did about as well as they could have with the very obvious time limitations. I don't know but I, honestly, had a real fun time watching this movie. It's not like it's the best thriller I've ever seen, but it does offer a pretty good and entertaining little diversion. Acting is pretty good all around as well. I think the film could've been better if there was a little more time to develop the characters and the narrative. Everything comes and goes so quickly that it always seems like the you're playing catch-up with the film. It's not that it's hard to follow, it's not a complex film in the least, it's just that it's such a quick paced film that once you're finally digesting a certain plot point, the movie is already ahead of what you're processing in your mind. I did like JJ Feild's performance as the villain of this film. He's got this cold and calculated manner of speaking that definitely works very well for the character. It's not like his performance is completely unique to him, but it's still good and he makes for a good villain. Other than that, with the film being so short, there's really nothing else to really say about the film. At 70 minutes long, it's about as easy to watch as any film I've ever seen. This might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed the film. It's just a fun thriller. It could've been better, it's honestly a bit rough around the edges, but it's entertaining for 70 minutes, so I can't complain much. I'd recommend it as a Netflix watch, nothing else.

The set-up and unshakably taut atmosphere make good use for its short run time and make Not Safe for Work a thrilling experience though it should have stopped before the last 30 seconds.
