Jason is on Safe ground.
SAFE 94mins. Opens Friday, May 4 THE STARS Jason Statham, Catherine Chan. THE VERDICT Jason Statham flexes his cool, action-man muscle again in this stylishly, fast-paced thriller.
He plays a down-on-his-luck former New York policeman, helping a 12-year-old Chinese girl (Chan) whose brilliance with numbers and codes makes her a target for the Russian mob, Chinese gangsters and corrupt Manhattan cops. It is familiar fare for Statham fans, but Safe is shot in a quirky, clever style with enough smart twists to keep it gripping.
FINAL CUT 4 A fast and frantic action man affair
Action man... Jason Statham
