I’m pleased to be seeing a pretty consistent twitter consensus that Safe is on the quality end of Jason Statham’s action output of late, as the trailer suggested a toss-up to me. Good direction, above-average characters, and an apparently wanton disregard for bystanders are a few characteristics that have gotten nice reports- so I’m eager to see it.
In any event, we’re please to say that Lionsgate would like you to have more Statham in your life, and to celebrate the release of Safe they’ve given us a one-sheet from the film and a badass Jason Statham DVD pack to give away to a lucky reader.

Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever, leaving Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute, haunted by guilt, and tormented by the knowledge that he will always be watched, and anyone he develops a relationship with will also be killed.But when he witnesses a frightened twelve-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action…and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war. Mei, he discovers, is no ordinary girl, but an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for the Triads as a “counter.” He discovers she holds in her memory a priceless numerical code that the Triads, the Russian mob and a corrupt faction of the NYPD will kill for.
Realizing he’s the only person Mei can trust, Luke tears a swath through the city’s brutal underworld to save an innocent girl’s life…and perhaps even redeem his own.
