Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Safe would be a pretty standard Jason Statham action movie if not for the fact that a 12-year-old girl is present for the movie's dozens of brutal beatings, shootings, and killings -- none of which result in any real consequences for the "good guys." Language isn't constant but does include strong words like "f--k" and "s--t," as well as some racial slurs and cultural stereotyping. The main character seems to have a drinking problem during the first half of the movie, but he's easily able to give it up as the action increases.

Sexual Content

The main character's wife is killed off screen during the first few minutes of the movie, and viewers never see them together. No sex talk or innuendo, either.


The violence would be on par with other action movies except for the fact that a 12-year-old girl witnesses dozens of brutal beatings, shootings, and killings and is herself very often in danger. She even picks up a gun herself to shoot a bad guy. The main character used to be a cop and is now a cage fighter.


Several uses of "f--k," plus sporadic uses of "a--hole," "son of a bitch," "s--t," "damn," "hell," "scum bag," "goddamn," "d--k," and "balls." "Chink" is used as a racial slur.

Social Behavior

The main character finds a new lease on life when he learns to care for and protect a young girl. He sees her as a person, whereas other characters are simply after her extraordinary math skills. Unfortunately, in his journey, he kills dozens of men without consequence. There's also some cultural stereotyping, and a character momentarily considers suicide.


An iPhone is used prominently but not mentioned by name. A package of M&Ms is visible in the background in a hotel mini-bar.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main character seems to have a drinking problem during a down-and-out period -- he keeps sneaking drinks from a flask. But as the action increases, his drinking stops. Other characters are seen drinking socially in bars. The mayor drinks whisky in his office.
