Review: Safe

Safe [DVD + Digital Copy]


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.

I finally caught the 2012 movie entitled Safe with Jason Statham. It. Is. Fabulous! Action from the word go. I've been a fan from the time I watched the Transporter movies, and while all his movies aren't the best, Safe is at the top of the Best List. If you like your action movies with a good storyline, this one is for you!

I liked the transporter movies too! Now that a co-worker at Dish informed me that the Safe just came out for rent, I’ll definitely put this movie at the top of my Blockbuster@Home queue list so that I can get it as soon as possible. I like Blockbuster because I can rent games and movies, access online content, and stream movies straight to my TV. I do believe that it’s better to play games and rent movies for a flat monthly fee instead of buying them. It saves a ton of money in the long run.

Oh, I agree. I enjoy Netflix so I don't have to rent/buy a bunch of movies. But I just had to check out Safe! ;)
