Safe

What it's about:

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.

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. She's an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for the Triads as a "counter." He discovers that 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. Realising that 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.

What the critics thought:

"Despite some impressively gritty street-level action, Safe plays it far too safe."
- Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter


"It's the imposing Statham's badass grimace and combat acumen that primarily elevate Safe above your average direct-to-video genre work."
- Nick Schager, Slant Magazine


"Barrels through cliché after cliché and hurdles from borough to borough with a welcome abandon for logic, morality, and mortality alike."
- William Goss, Film.com

She has the code. He is the key.

Statham is actually such a talented actor! I was watching Lock Stock and Snatch the other day and he's just awesome!
