Feel safe with the Stath,
This review is from: Safe [DVD] (DVD)
This could quite possibly be Statham's best film yet. The producers have been a little more generous with the budget than the average Statham film and have had the good sense to cast a little Chinese girl in a central role. The casting of newcomer Catherine Chen is a great idea and gives everyone a reason to actually care about a someone in a film of largely unpleasant characters.
Statham though takes center stage and is on great form as always playing the sympathetic minder one minute and cold hearted killer the next.In a film full of bent cops, Chinese triads and Russian Mafia there's plenty of bodies around for Jason to dispatch to their graves at pretty regular intervals.
After the early plot developments unfold it sets things up nicely for an action packed hour that you won't forget in a hurry. If you are a Statham fan then you'll love this without a doubt;If you are looking for a thriller with more brains than brawn then perhaps look elsewhere.
A great 90 minutes entertainment courtesey of "The Stath".
