I am honestly beginning to think there is a new genre of action films that is purely defined as Statham. His movies are in a world of their own, where he is best driver in the world, one of the most difficult men to kill in his film and is an unmatched fighter. His films follow a particular structure of death and destruction that only pander to the base needs that film goers want when they see a Statham movie. I want him to either a) drive cars in the most actiony way possible, b) shot lots of guns at people, c) make quips and lots of them, and finally d) beat up everyone who gets in his way. The latest film, Safe, for a lack of a better word, is pretty much a safe film that delivers us what we come to expect with Jason Statham films. It’s not rocket science, but damned if the science isn’t fun to watch.
