That’s a heck of a cast for this kind of thing. I like David Morse. Anson Mount was also wasted in The Stath’s Safe.

It was a small part, but he was also very cool, and I wasn't expecting his first skirmish as he looked like a businessman (which was the point). And I do like the final confrontation between him and Statham, as it played against expectations, particularly for a Stath film. I've got a lot of time for Safe.

Virtuoso makes a full-time waste of him by comparison, and makes him utterly ridiculous with that voiceover. It's almost comedy value though.

Yeah, was totally not expecting him to obliterate the Triad goons! :D I did want a bit more from that final confrontation - call me a purist. :D Safe has some cracking, bone crunching action even if the plot gets more preposterous as the movie goes on. :D Chad Stahelski was the 2nd unit action director on it.

Thanks Cas, you saved me from putting it on a watchlist (As I normally would as Mr. Hopkins is in it)

This should've been called The Idiot Savant but that would've been an insult to idiots.
