* 2004 Directed by David R. Ellis. With Kim Basinger, Chris Evans, Jason Statham, William H. Macy. A young man receives an emergency phone call on his cell phone from an older woman. The catch? The woman claims to have been kidnapped; and the kidnappers have targeted her husband and child next.
Jason Statham does indeed play it safe in Safe, beating up bad guys and firing guns and barely changing the expression on his face, just as he’s done countless times before. But the movie director Boaz Yakin constructs around him turns out, quite surprisingly, to be far better than standard issue Statham. http://thevideostation.com/blog/2012/09/06/safe-reviewed-by-david/#
