THURS­DAY SAFE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9PM, 7MATE ★★

As long as ac­tion fans are will­ing to pay to see Ja­son Statham do his thump-tas­tic thing, he’ll keep the stony scowls and se­ri­ous belt­ings a’com­ing. A kook­ily plot­ted thriller, Safe sees Statham play­ing Luke Wright, an ex-cop on the run from Rus­sian gang­sters. Our emo­tion­ally with­drawn hero forms a pro­tec­tive bond with a lit­tle Chi­nese girl with a pho­to­graphic mem­ory. Not the worst feel-bad re­venge flick you’ll ever see.
