Storyline Heading
Luke Wright is a former NYPD cop cum second-rate cage fighter whose wife has been murdered and his life destroyed by the Russian mob. With nothing to live for, Luke finds himself on a subway platform, staring at an oncoming train and contemplating suicide, a moment of hollow-eyed despair that Statham inhabits fully.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Crime Thriller - Like more or less all starring vehicles for Jason Statham, this is a violent action film full of fights and chases. Even though one of the main characters is a young girl, the violence and language make the film much too intense for children. Males, as usual for action films, are the target audience.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good As a well-engineered opportunity to enjoy bloody mayhem without feeling too bad about who's on the receiving end, Safe has the combination.

USA Today Full Review
Good Despite the convolutions of the plot, Statham's rough-hewn charisma and physicality sell Safe, overpowering the ludicrousness of a one-man killing machine.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good There's a back story to this, and it's actually sort of witty.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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 gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action…and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war. Mei, he discovers, is no ordinary girl, but an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for the Triads as a "counter." He discovers she holds in her memory a priceless numerical code that the Triads, the Russian mob and a corrupt faction of the NYPD will kill for.

Realizing he's the only person Mei can trust, Luke tears a swath through the city's brutal underworld to save an innocent girl's life…and perhaps even redeem his own.
