March 4, 2013
An action film so cack-handed it borders on parody.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 14, 2012
Perhaps one of these days Statham will stop making the same movie over and over and try something new.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 18, 2012
Character development and storyline are treated as inconveniences to be tossed aside at the earliest opportunity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 10, 2012
Jason Statham's latest actionpalooza "Safe" is unsuitably hilarious, although that's probably not the film's intended reaction.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
May 9, 2012
Safe is so ham-fistedly BAD on every conceivable level that it bordered on entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 26, 2012
The movie's too heavy for its own good, even for a strongman like Statham.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 27, 2012
It never feels like more than a second-tier video game brought to life.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 30, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 23, 2012
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.
May 4, 2012
The massive body count is no compensation for a coherent story or memorable action.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 26, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 22, 2012
Like too many of Jason Statham's recent star vehicles, "Safe" is an adequate solo act in need of better accompaniment.
April 27, 2012
The convoluted, goofy B movie lets down its hardworking star.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 23, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
May 10, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 29, 2012
It sets the stage for the best cop drama since Heat... and ultimately proves unable to meet those expectations.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
April 26, 2012
Held on the shelf for a while until the marquee was (briefly) clear of action dramas, "Safe" arrives filled with bombast and sneers but barely any thrills.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
