Official poster for Jason Statham starrer Safe

01.18.2012

The official poster for Jason Statham's upcoming action flick SAFE has come out of hiding. Click the image to see a much larger version.

SAFE stars Statham as an ex-New York cop who rescues a twelve-year-old-girl genius and must protect her from the Triads, the Russian Mafia, and corrupt New York officials who all want a code that she has memorized.

I remember when it starred Bruce Willis and was called MERCURY RISING. Just with less kicks to the head.

I guess this is a bonus for Statham, since the film is actually being released in theaters. It seems that for every one film that graces the big screen he has three more going straight to video.

I like Statham, but he's oversaturated the market so much, most of it being pure drivel, that it's hard to get excited about what he's got coming out next. It would be nice to see him take some risks and jump into some bolder material, but I guess when your core audience just wants to see you beat groups of people up with your shirt off you just gotta roll with it.

SAFE is directed by Boaz Yakin (REMEMBER THE TITANS) and also stars Anson Mount, Chris Sarandon, Reggie Lee and James Hong and will jump kick you in the face on April 27, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Before you jump too far to Statham's defense, don't forget he starred in the Uwe Boll masterpiece In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, which was pure cinematic gold. Right?

They're not alike at all. Well besides having a young girl. Leon wasn't protecting Mathilda from people. No one was after her. She made herself known.

There will of course be haters against Statham but he, at least to me, has only ever done two horrible films. Those being "War" and "The Mechanic". I've never seen him with his softer side in "London" but you can't help and praise him for doing ridiculous stunts that we, well most of us, have come to know and love. I thought all the Transporter and Crank movies were a lot of fun and it was great to see him show his comedic side in "Snatch". The way I see it I'm sure "Safe" will be as much fun

To be fair I think Killer Elite was Statham's attempt at more layered, intellectual material and that was the biggest POS ever. Perhaps he's doing the right thing by sticking to a formula.

Sorry, but...

Statham's last good roll was Lock Stock & Two Smokin' Barrels. Snatch was pretty good too though. I could care less about the guy or what he's in otherwise.

In his defense...

No one really criticizes Samuel L. Jackson for saying yes to everything that crosses his desk.

That said, you are correct in saying that 90% of everything he does is garbage. It's a shame. He is a charismatic and plausible action star, and capable of comedy too given his roles in Guy Ritchie's films.

The difference though, is that Samuel Jackson is actually a good actor.
