It's a thriller by numbers that doesn't feel clever enough for its talented cast.
May 14, 2018
It can whirr on, in its mechanical way, without me.

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.

Skip it, unless you're a Hall or Coben completist. It just feels like the twists aren't going to be nearly as twisty as Coben thinks they're going to be.

[Michael C.] Hall's accent, reasonably consistent and yet rarely believable, is one of many things on Safe that are askew and, the more I think about it, the more I can't tell if it's intentional if not particularly satisfying, or merely bad.

Safe is... top-quality TV drama.
May 29, 2018
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.

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

June 1, 2018
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.
May 10, 2018
Almost everything about Safe, from the acting to the dialogue, is pulpy with a vengeance.
May 14, 2018
Finding out why they are so guarded, and where all the bodies (figuratively and literally) are buried, is what makes this series a potential binge candidate.
May 4, 2018
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.
May 11, 2018
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.

Generally delivers the kinds of well-paced twists that mystery fans are likely to enjoy.
May 11, 2018
I'm very much enjoying these people, without really caring about them.

Those who enjoyed Broadchurch and Doctor Foster should definitely check out Netflix's latest British thriller Safe...
May 13, 2018
Excellent acting all round; twisty plot that holds your attention; even better than "The Five" and that means it is superb TV viewing. Worth the bingewatching thrill.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Cliche-free British crime drama is great grown-up mystery.

We have to talk about that accent.
