New York Post

There are zero surprises, but it looks good, moves well through a trim running time and wields its clichés with defiant aplomb.

Washington Post

There's a back story to this, and it's actually sort of witty.

Boaz Yakin's slick direction, marked by quick cuts, unstinting energy and a lack of sentimentality, makes the action scenes satisfying. But...

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Safe has more action than intrigue (or logic), and it's boilerplate vicious. It may satisfy Statham's fans, but they - like he - would do...

It has neither the Red Bull–fueled crudeness of "Crank" nor the Frenchified lunatic vitality of the "Transporter" movies; it's not even as...

Safe ... A Safe bet for those who like his transporter movies

By Darkola
Jason Statham movies for me are either hit or miss, I really liked the Transporter movies, but really hated the Crank movies, so the good news is, this movie reminded me of his Transporter movies,...

Action packed

What you would expect from a Jason Statham movie. Lots of action. Fast moving pace. I wish they would have spent a couple more minutes on the history of the main character. There could have been...

Very satisfying violence, and a decent plot to boot!

By coffeeheadab
The soundtrack and music fit the scenes and choreography well. The plot was decent and mostly believable. But, the gun violence was most satisfying in FINALLY seeing the bad guys eliminated sans...

SAFE-ly a great movie!

Statham & Co. ROCK! -- and so does this well-paced, rarely-a-dull-moment film. The beginning is a bit hard to reconcile with the rest of the story, but once the two main characters make contact the...

It was slow at the beginning, action packed almost to the end, too short and would should have take some sort of trip to Seattle and what life for the "two friends" was there....

Very Good Movie good story line, Typical Jason Statham Movie him kicking some Major A%#! But he always does and does a great job at it....

Stay Safe - Stay home......

I usually enjoy Jason Statham movies - bubble gum action movies, but entertaining. Safe however was not "da' bomb", but rather a bomb. It was mind numbing violence - mixed with a plethora of sub...

Jason Statham is dynamite in this police vs. mob action thriller. The movie builds up at the beginning like a tease, knowing that the action is coming soon, and once it does it's almost...

Lots of action, solid movie, with odd storyline

By nng
This is a pretty good action flick, though my movie partner thought it was boring, I found it to be exciting, full of action, interesting and statham did a pretty good job in his role. The storyline...


By megalodonshark
It is like a Transporter movie without the Transporter title. It was pretty good and great action scenes. Could have used better story lines and more character development....
