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.

When the killer gets Tom's phone it shows the video start from where the killer starts choking with the phone wire, whereas it should have started when Tom puts his phone to record about an hour before that. See more »
This is a nail biting action thriller. There were solid performances from all of the cast members..especially the villain, JJ Field. Max Minghella was really great too. I really hope to see more from them in the future. Im sick of seeing mediocre acting from the likes of Zac Efron, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Godzilla), and Shia Leboeuf in these big budget mindless movies. Big budget is great, but if the lead cant act, then the movie has no soul, IMO. Not Safe For Work is fast paced and really held my interest. The dialogue is sharp. I found this movie to be a refreshing change from so many movies that Hollywood has been cranking out lately. No fight scenes that drag on too long. The protagonist doest do anything that makes you think "ok, that beaks the laws of physics". None of the shaky hand held camera business so many thriller movies fall back on now days (thx Blair Witch project). I also love that this movie didn't rely on a cynical screenplay, swearing, nudity, or any shock value. Its just a well written, well executed, and well directed movie. Why cant more movies be like this?
