"bham2013" Jason Stratham is very a sympathetic thug in this satisfying action movie with plenty of gun fights, brawls and convenient justification for violence. Knowing the story is a bit emotionally manipulative doesn't detract from the visceral joy when things escalate.

The subtitles oh my just way too many. Jason was great in this but that is about it. Needed more english and less , alot less subtitles. I like to read but damn this movie could have been good , had great potential and the storyline is somewhat interesting but damn subtitles ruined it beyond repair.

Safe has the same problem low budget action / amateurish movies have -- believing that shaking the camera increases excitement. Compare this movie to Reacher and you'll see a polished action movie in the latter. You'll see all the action rather than shakey fast cutting exterme close-ups. Safe's story line is so simple too -- get the combination to the safe and chase alot.

Watchable. The action sequences are good but the plot is too complicated.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

“Safe” has good action sequences and a fresh storyline, a rarity in this genre. The girl’s character really works; she is an active player, astute and not all-together helpless, which is often the case for children roles in these types of films.

Simple but straightforward plot, with a few twists and flourishes, and solid fights and shootouts. The Chinese girl was a refreshing change from the usual "protectee". Good entertainment all around.

Above average action movie. Statham is Statham, only I thought with less hand to hand and stunt work (which is where he truly shines). I really wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be (I waited quite a while for it and it had gotten a lot of good reviews). The interaction between him and the child doesn't reek of chemistry. The acting by everyone is good enough, but I didn't think it was anything to write home about.
