Trivia

This movie takes place in New York City, as Tom's cell phone number starts with (516) area code, which is the area code for Nassau County, Long Island, New York. In the movie, the office building is mentioned to be in the "City," and New York City is the closest city to Nassau County, and most people who work in New York travel west from Long Island.

Goofs

When the killer 1st picked up Tom's ATT iphone and seen the video of him killing Roger, the time was displayed was 10:36, but when Tom and Emmerich was trap in the file room and the killer displayed the text messages to Anna, the time displayed on Tom's phone was 3:43. It's very unlikely they was a time lapses of 5 plus hours. See more »

Routine but rather well made office building tension
16 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not Safe for Work (2014)

A straight up office building thriller. Yeah, like that's a genre already—well, it feels like it. Isn't that what "Die Hard" was? This one tones it down and it becomes practically believable. Almost too believable, so that it's a bit routine after awhile, even if you're still on the edge of your seat.

So imagine you're the last one to leave the office—almost last—and the elevators stop. And then you see someone with a gun, and the computers go nuts, and the lights flicker. So you have a nightmare, trapped, no way to contact help. Even your cellphone ends up, of course, in the hands of the bad guy.

And what a bad guy he is, a seemingly cool customer with no qualms killing anyone for any reason. What's a little blood when a pharmaceutical company has a lawsuit on the fritz? And so it goes, running through offices and hiding behind desks.

Can this last for a couple hours? Almost! It works on some level. It doesn't work on a lot of other levels, for sure, like caring very much about anyone. (This is where both Bruce Willis and the script of "Die Hard" have something special going on, whatever you think of that Hollywood blockbuster.) Here, you more or less know what's going to happen, and then by the end you are sure. But getting there isn't half bad. Half, at least.
