    Synopsis


    Safe
    A suicidal New Jersey cage fighter protects a young Chinese math prodigy from Triads, Russian gangsters, and corrupt cops in this action thriller from producer Lawrence Bender (Pulp Fiction) and writer/director Boaz Yakin (Fresh, A Price Above Rubies). Ten-year-old Mei (Catherine Chan) is a genuine numbers wizard from Nanjing. Unfortunately, her unusual proficiency in mathematics has made her the target of Triad boss Han Jaio (James Hong), who abducts the young girl from her home and sends her to America to help keep his underhanded business dealings a well-guarded secret. Mei has the ability to store a virtual library of financial information in her head, and by having the young girl as his personal bookkeeper, Han is able to operate without fear of being implicated by a telling paper trail. Meanwhile, as Mei follows her new "father" Chang (Reggie Lee) on his many extortion outings, Luke Wright (Jason Statham) takes flight from the Russian mafia after botching a fixed fight and seeing his wife murdered in retribution. Mei's and Luke's fates collide, however, when, soon after Han Jiao makes the trip to America to give the young girl a secret number, the fallen fighter witnesses her fleeing from Russian gangsters just as he is about to take his own life. At that moment, Luke pulls himself back from the brink and decides to take action. But now Luke's death wish may come true sooner than he anticipated; not only are the Triads and the Russians determined to get that number by any means necessary, but corrupt NYPD captain Wolf (Robert John Burke) is hell-bent on beating them to it -- and has the power of the law on his side. As day turns to night, Luke realizes that his time is quickly running out. Perhaps if Luke can save Mei, he will have finally taken the first crucial steps down the road to redemption and toward a new life where he won't have to fight in order to survive. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Statham at his best

      You’re a man with no friends left in the world thinking about doing yourself and your enemies a favor and ending your life. Moments before you can carry out your plan, however, you see a young girl in need of your help. Do you go to her aid? If your answer is no, you just shortened this movie by about 98%. When we first meet Luke Wright (played by Jason Statham), he’s won a mixed martial arts bout that the Russian mob “encouraged” him to lose. An easy enough task given the fact that he already had a losing record. After they assault him, he believes the worst is behind him. That proves to be false when he returns home to find members of the same Russian mob have killed his girlfriend (or wife, I’m not entirely sure and the information sources I’ve checked are silent on the matter). Rather than kill him, he’s left as the prime suspect in the homicide and told to leave the mob’s territory. On the other side of the world, a ten year-old Chinese student named Mei (played by Catherine Chan in her first feature film) demonstrates an exceptional gift for remembering numbers regardless of length or complexity. When the nature of her gift becomes common knowledge in her hometown, she becomes the ward of a local businessman with consent of her father whose hands are full thanks to her mother’s serious illness. The businessman is a member of the Triads, Chinese organized crime for those who are unfamiliar, and intends to use her gift in America in lieu of written or computer files, as both can be seized by law enforcement. In time, they trust her unflinchingly and ask her to remember a very long number and relay it to the Russians who will give her another number to bring back. But when her escorts are shot en route to the Russians, she runs and they chase her. She makes it to the subway where a despondent Luke (Statham) subdues her pursuers and makes himself the one man in New York who the Triads, the Russians, and the NYPD officers on their payroll all want dead. Now, I like Jason Statham. While I don’t own copies of any film in either the Transporter series or the Crank series, I do own do own DVDs of The Mechanic and Death Race despite the fact that both films received generally negative reviews from the majority of critics. However that might reflect on my credibility, I thought that this was a very entertaining action film. Not as good as The Bank Job, but if you have any affection for fight scenes and car chases, Safe is for you.

      The good thing about this movie is that it has shooting and the martial arts together.This has to be the most hardcore of his movies.Its going feel like your watching a john woo movie.I am a huge fan this movie was the icing on the cake.Even though the story line was like most of his other movies the action makes up for it.This is what we go to the movies for,this is why we watch blue rays.This got to be the best of his movies you never got a well blend of his martial art skills and gun play like this before.The transporter mixed with Chow yung fat the killer...One of the best action dudes out right now.

      My favorite Jason Statham movies prior to "Safe" were "The Transporter" and "Transporter II". "The Killer Elite" and "The Bank Job" were good movies for him too! The movie "Safe" has Jason playing the same type of a good man but with different feelings or attitudes or sadness that creates an opposite direction for him, i.e., in the early beginning of this movie than in the movies I mentioned above. Then things get down to business, and the real Jason Statham does what he does best. Righting wrongs and helping those who cannot fend for themselves.

      Statham proves he can bring a whole character.

      Jason Statham creates a sympathetic character that is not the norm for an action movie. The writer, director and the actor bring a whole person to the screen with all the foibles of the average man in a bad situation. The combination brought the action I love from Mr Statham and a character who I wanted to know more about. I wanted this guy to succeed. The young girl costar was very believable and I see great things for her also.

      Good movie, but the Digital Copy does not work

      Posted
      IAmCarGuy

      I bought Safe because I saw it in theaters and liked it. The movie itself was really good. However, the Redemption Code was out of date! I bought this movie mainly so I could have the digital copy, and not have to play the movie on my TV every time. Whenever I enter the redemption code, it says "Invalid Code". I read the fine print, turns out that the code expires after 9/4/13. Really?

      Actually a Pretty Good Little Film

      Safe isn't the type of film to be lavished in critical acclaim and awards, but it's actually probably one of Jason Statham's better films. It has a bit of heart to it, with the well choreographed action sequences you've come to expect from his films. Good blu-ray with an Ultraviolet code included that works like a charm on Vudu.

      Loved the acting, the fast suspenseful pace and the ending. At first I was a little confused about who was who and what the main character had to do with the plot, but soon picked up what I was missing. Had 5 other people over to watch this and everyone loved it "great movie"
