Am I the only one in this world that remembers a little movie called Mercury Rising? The fact that the trailer for Safe is so reminiscent of Mercury Rising and nobody else is acknowledging it is driving me insane. A child who cracks codes is being hunted by law enforcement and assassins and it’s up to a bald protagonist to protect the child? HOW IS THIS NOT FAMILIAR? They essentially swapped bald guy Bruce Willis for bald guy Jason Statham and replaced an austic boy with a chinese girl. Other than that…SAME MOVIE.
Oh yea, there’s also a bunch of Jason Statham badassery going on. Like, A LOT of gun-kicky-punchy badassery. In that sense, this movie is nothing like Mercury Rising because that film was lame as hell.[Via Yahoo!]
