Well, this pains me to say it but...I fell asleep in the movie. I was dog tired!
The little that I saw was typical Statham. Loads of action, loads of shaky-cam, very little substance.

Hope I get to see the ending sometime.

Seen this at a pretty full shEpherds bush
I wasn't expecting to but I really enjoyed this. o/
Yes story was a bit meh. but classic Jason stratham film.
But so much action. And quite a few bits that made me laugh when watching it.

They said they were looking to re-schedule it!

Saw this at Shepherds Bush tonight thanks to Chemenger. It was pretty packed.

Well, what can I say. It's a Jason Statham film. Need I say anymore... You know what you are letting yourself in for. Car chases, martial arts, guns, double crosses and a body count to match the old 80s Rambo movies. If that is what you like then you will be entertained. If none of this appeals then the movie will seem a mess, disjointed and uneven.

I'm in the former camp so it's an 8/10 for me. Entertaining but also quite forgettable at the same time.

If you are in the latter camp then a 4/10.

Saw the film at Vue Oxford tonight in one of the biggger screens only 1/3 full though-enjoyed it typical statham film though, thought it might have been a bit cheesy and sentimental in places because there is a young girl as a main character but no worries there, no bad comedy one liner either thank god, would give it 7.5 / 10

saw this at shepherds bush tonight, would give it 7.5/10! quite enjoyed it - exactly as i thought it would be. typical jason statham film, typical cheesiness, typical action, all round great entertainment.

[spoiler]and the final fight scene - did not see that coming. haha. that was awesome[/spoiler]

No bus where there used to be several buses b4 condemned cuts. So, therefore no movie for me :noo:.

Even tried to risk life and limb to flag down a couple of buses on the main road, but nope fate conspired against me and just didn't want me to see the movie. So many cutbacks here that there is a 2 hr and 6 minute delay between bus times - great. The bus time offered was 1826 (I hadn't realised at the time they meant the year rather than the time). Shame really - I wanted to see it (the movie and a bus). Not a fan of the Statham man, but I am a fan of the action genre.

On a positive note, saved bus fares and food money, and caught up on Homeland to boot. Then was so excited to find an advert for The Killing part II. Roll on Wednesday. I'll catch up with Safe some other time. Forgotten about seeing the movie already.

I saw this last night - a bit formulaic but well put together. I'm not usually an action fan so this was a bit of a guilty pleasure. I'd give it 6/10.

Saw this film in an almost full Norwich. I loved this film for all its clichés. The Chinese and Russian gangsters the corrupt NYPD Police etcetera, etcetera. A film that could be viewed on many levels, it kept me guessing as to why the numbers were so important.
