Ah, now that’s more like it. Jason Statham back, kicking ass in what looks to be like another typical studio action film, at least its rated R and at least it stars Jason Statham. The last time I recall having fun watching a Statham movie was last years The Mechanic, but it looks like Safe is aiming to recapture that magic. After starring in the incredibly boring Killer Elite and the direct-to-home-video Blitz, Statham hasn’t been making much of a splash in 2011. 2012 will be Statham’s year though, returning for The Expendables 2 and starring in Safe.
Safe is about a former elite agent (aka bad ass) who decides to protect an innocent 12 year old Chinese girl when he notices her being followed by Triads. Toss in some dirty cops and the Russians and you have yourself a typical Statham actioner, which isn’t a bad thing. The trailer plays its self pretty straight forward and serious until the bit at the end where he’s speaking to a thug in their native language right before killing him. Its little scenes like those that make Statham movies fun to watch.
Turn off your brain and enjoy the violence when Safe opens on March 2nd, 2012.
