The Stath is back! And this time he’s stepping way outside his comfort zone, playing a tough ex-cop beating up bad guys in action movie Safe – and speaking with what we strongly suspect is supposed to be an American accent.
Jason Statham plays Luke Wright, “the Big Apple’s hardest cop – once upon a time”, who finds himself taking on the Triads, the Russian Mafia and corrupt New York City officials as he tries to protect a 12-year-old girl with a deadly secret.
Warning: if you’d rather not see people get punched repeatedly in the face or shot at point blank range, don’t watch this trailer, which is rated for 17-year-olds and above in the US.
Safe is released in UK cinemas on 2 March 2012.
