This is one of Jason's best films yet. It's a lot of action, great chases and best of all the story is actually interesting. Definitely a solid 4 stars. And ignore that 2 star rating on here, the person says right up front that they don't like action films. This movie was fun and worth the money.
When you're good at something, you might as well keep doing it until you're not. Jason Statham must have gotten that memo, because he's doing more of the same here in "Safe". That's not a bad thing by the way. I like Statham as an action hero, and even though he tends to play the same character in every film, he plays it well. Here, he's Luke, a former disgraced cop and current cage fighter who runs afoul of the Russian mob. They kill his wife, and threaten to kill anyone he gets close to. Soon, he finds Mei, an 11 year old with an incredible memory and a series of numbers in her head the Chinese mob is after. Soon, they're being chased by both mobs and the police. While Statham has done this before, he hasn't really had a writer/director like Boaz Yakin, in his directing career is known more for character studies than action. He raises the level of writing here, creating some great one liners, even if the story is standard issue. He's also really good with the action and fight sequences. This is a very violent film, but you knew that when you saw Statham's name above the title. Statham as usual, is his stoic self when reciting dialogue, and a mad man when kicking rear. It's not Shakespeare, but for what it is, it's pretty darn good.
I think if you are a guy who likes action films you will love this movie and have a great time watching it. However, i am not a fan of this type of films so i spend the whole movie rolling my eyes and wishing I was somewhere else. My boyfriend dragged me with him to see this movie and I will never forgive him for that. The film is full of pointless fight and chase scenes and Jason Statham is as macho as humanly possible which was kind of funny to me but most of the audience seemed to love that. Overall, this film is made for a target audience and that audience will eat this movie up.
I did not like this film and do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I hate this kind of films, it’s all about shooting and chasing and there is no real point to it. The film actually started promising but soon it became mediocre and then extremely boring. The film is full of cliches and stereotypes and incredibly stupid one liners that made me laugh most of the time. Maybe I am biased because I am not a fan of action film but then again i liked MI3 and that was an action film. Overall, I think this film was unoriginal, silly and definitely not worth your time or money.
I love action flicks and I thought this film was pretty good. If you like action movies then I recommend seeing this one in the theaters. The film was very energetic and there was a lot of great action scenes that looked awesome and I was highly entertained. It is a very cynical movie but i did not mind that and actually liked it because it added to the overall atmosphere of the film. Statham is very good in this film and his machismo is so perfect for this film, i can not imagine anyone else playing this role. Overall, I had lots of fun watching this film and I think that it is worth the price of the movie ticket.
