Plot Summary
Luke Wright (Jason Statham) is a two-bit cage fighter, until the day he throws a fixed match. In retaliation, the Russian mob murders his family and destroys his life. Though alone and haunted by grief, Luke springs into action to save a Chinese girl (Catherine Chan) from the same gangsters who killed his family -- and lands in the middle of a high-stakes war. The girl is no ordinary child; she's a math prodigy who holds in her head a numerical code for which various factions are ready to kill.

  • Statham is still playing it safe in Safe, but vulnerability is showing through the cracks. show more

  • Though Safe initially seems a little darker and more thoughtful than the British star's previous comic-book escapades in "Death Race," "The Expendables" or the "Transporter" trilogy, it ultimately reverts to testosterone-heavy formula. show more

  • It has neither the Red Bull–fueled crudeness of "Crank" nor the Frenchified lunatic vitality of the "Transporter" movies; it's not even as cheaply entertaining as the generic hit-man retread "The Mechanic." Safe shows Statham comfortably treading water, proving all the things he no longer needs to prove. show more

    Very entertaining action film. Weak storyline that wasn\'t properly fleashed out. Still, very good.

    As the only action hero this guy should be required to put out a movie every 3 months.

    Loved this movie. Action movie with a great storyline. J.S plays these kind of roles to perfection. I love when good prevails over evil. All around great acting and action scenes.
