Jason Statham has let it be known that he chooses his films based on the fight choreographer the producers hire. With "Safe," working with choreographer J.J. Perry ("Haywire"), that strategy pays off. In this slow-building B-movie thriller, an 11-year-old girl, Mei (Catherine Chan), is in need of his protection. The dialogue crackles with flinty one-liners. "Don't lose sleep. He had it coming," he tells bystanders after killing a boatload of bad guys. Statham never phones it in, though his roles can seem to be one long version of the same guy: haunted and hunted, in need of a shave.
