A second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit, Luke Wright lives a numbing life of routine beatings and chump change...until the day he blows a rigged fight. Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever, leaving Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute, haunted by guilt, and tormented by the knowledge that he will always be watched, and anyone he develops a relationship with will also be killed.

But when he witnesses a frightened twelve-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The occasional efficient action sequence means that 'Safe' never gets truly dull, but even Statham aficionados might feel short- changed by this one."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Despite some impressively gritty street-level action, Safe plays it far too safe."
‑ Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
"An action film so cack-handed it borders on parody."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"Safe is an exceptional Jason Statham B-movie that managed to sneak through the cracks during its theatrical release."
‑ Jeremy Lebens, We Got This Covered
"Jason Statham's latest actionpalooza "Safe" is unsuitably hilarious, although that's probably not the film's intended reaction."
‑ Justin Craig,
"The thoroughly mediocre Safe provides little more than an excuse for Statham to do what Statham does better than anyone else: look stern while punishing bad guys. That's just not enough."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, The Atlantic
"Yeah, "Safe" is a long way from perfect. But rented, in a few months, it'll go great with a six-pack and a hold-the-anchovies special."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It ain't too smart, it ain't too sophisticated, but it does have its charm and is entertaining enough for what it is: an action-packed, B-movie experience."
‑ Kofi Outlaw, ScreenRant
"Perhaps one of these days Statham will stop making the same movie over and over and try something new."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Overcomes its formulaic concept and delivers the best damned film of Jason Statham's career."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"It's like another "Transporter'' installment trying to be something slightly more - and not quite delivering the goods."
‑ Tom Russo, Boston Globe
"It's hard to swallow Statham, who spent the Crank movies supercharging his last minutes of life, as a suicidal sad-sack, just as it's painful to see him yoked to a cute little girl in an obvious attempt to soften his image."
‑ Sam Adams, AV Club
"Character development and storyline are treated as inconveniences to be tossed aside at the earliest opportunity."
‑ Mary Clare Waireri, Fan The Fire
"Editing is wonky, and the story leaves much to be desired, but Jason Statham genuinely shines in this rugged, violent action-thriller, with a body count that rivals classic John Woo."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"[Jason] Statham blasts his way through his biggest body count in this satisfying, one-note action film designed very specifically for Statham fans who know his acting limits as well as he does."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
