“..you can't help feeling that an initially adventurous movie has had its rough edges sanded away..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
3 of 5

“..there's nothing terribly original about "Safe," but it's a suitably grimy playground for action cinema's reigning pit bull..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
2 of 4

“..the movie takes no chances, hitting all its marks for stunt work and CGI eruptions..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]

by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
1 of 5

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
