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.

Safe is an exceptional Jason Statham B-movie that managed to sneak through the cracks during its theatrical release.

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.

Overcomes its formulaic concept and delivers the best damned film of Jason Statham's career.

[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.

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.

Statham's character is complicated and interesting, and the '70s feel comes from a sense of hopelessness in the face of corruption.

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

It's the imposing Statham's badass grimace and combat acumen that primarily elevate Safe above your average direct-to-video genre work

Bullets ricochet, punches fly and the body count mounts in this Jason Statham actioner in which the Triad, the Russian Mafia and corrupt cops come to blows.

Fans of The Stath will find themselves very much at home with this well-acted, stylishly-shot actioner which boasts more depth than one would reasonably expect.

Nothing much changes in Safe or is original, only the language has got more colourful, with Yakin delivering up Statham gold for fans once again.

Jason Statham cuts a swathe through New York with fists, guns and one-liners.

It's tough delivering an action performance with heart. Statham's cracked it.

In a film whose pleasures are mostly confined to the sound of guns being assembled at speed and bad dialogue being delivered with glee, polish is beside the point.
