Critic Reviews for Safe Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8)

With committed performances (some of which are clearly aware of the ludicrous story they're in) and a brisk pace, Safe earns its status as a soapy pleasure and should entertain Netflix viewers craving engaging distraction.

Almost everything about Safe, from the acting to the dialogue, is pulpy with a vengeance.

There's nothing particularly fresh about it, but it does what it sets out to do - to keep the viewer guessing who dunit and why - with assurance and flair.

Boasts a quality cast and slick script [and] brings a tone of nightmarish slapstick.

The ensemble cast makes it all click. There are plenty of moments in Safe where the story and its twists threaten to derail the tightly wound mayhem, but the cast saves it from ever tipping over.

Still, this is a British mystery made for TV, and the form is a winner, despite some overwrought music that supplies more tension than the script calls for.

Safe isn't without its ticking clock grittiness and compelling riddles but there's also unintended comedy involved with a story where everyone somehow unwittingly contributes to someone's dire demise.

We have to talk about that accent.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

All in all, it's good, soapy fun. If you're willing to suspend your disbelief, you're likely to get swept up in its current, and once that happens, I'd wager that all eight episodes will safely disappear in a flash.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Safe does promise plenty of twists and turns for loyal mystery lovers, and the supporting cast, including Sherlock's Amanda Abbington, is extremely capable.
