  1. pintobean's rating of the film Safety Last!

    So many loose ends but Harold Lloyd is a hoot!

  2. John Matrix's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Nearly a hundred years later and it still works. Predominately visual gags founded on a simple plot have ensured this. Excellent example of a film with almost no fat (unless you count the myriad throwaway jokes, which I don't because they're hilarious). Just straight, focused comedy injected directly into the bloodstream.

  5. zohen lux's rating of the film Safety Last!

    i can't believe the greatest film of all time was made in the 20s

  6. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Harold Lloyd is right up there with the iconic legends of the silent film era like Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. With Safety Last! Lloyd is at the top of his game. The clock tower sequence is one of the most iconic set pieces in all of cinematic history and it consists of just some brilliant stunt work! This film is filled with some brilliant visual gags and is a must watch for any film fan!

  8. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Safety last features one of the most iconic shots from cinema history, but fails to deliver an interesting ride towards the epic climb that concludes the film. This climb in itself however, is an outstanding achievement up to this day.

  9. Ayinde Anderson's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Viewed in 2016 and the suspense and thrill of it all is still there. Timeless piece of entertainment filmmaking.

  10. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Safety Last!

    A big improvement over the last Lloyd film I saw, and one where he (eventually) comes into his great comedic masterstroke. This is the daring and often terrifying climb up a building using his bare hands. This sequence is so well crafted that you forget that a lot of what's being done is using movie magic, and are wholly wrapped up in the moment. It works almost as well as a thriller as it does a comedy.

  11. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Safety Last!

  12. Aardsy's rating of the film Safety Last!

  15. smndvdcl's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Lloyd's stunts remain utterly jaw-dropping.

  16. Vincent T's rating of the film Safety Last!

    not very funny, but the climbing sequence is pretty crazy.

  17. Dignan's rating of the film Safety Last!

  18. SpacePirate's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Just an excellent comedy. LLoyd is personally my fav silent comedian. Maybe bc he just seems like such an average guy. All he really wants is to get a good job and get with a great girl in most of his films. Very relatable to most. There is a reason this film has become a part of our culture and is spoofed in commercials and the like. Essential.

  19. Renton47's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Buoyed by Lloyd's rascally unstoppable character, the true epiphany here for me was the disguise of the wolf in sheep's clothing. The way in which The Boy's respectable veneer was really a facade for his general amorality and desire to make it big with the aid of any shortcuts on hand make it a great allegory for the rise of early century American capitalism.

  20. msmichel's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Classic Harold Lloyd comedy that is one of his most consistently funny films. The climb/clock sequence is of course one of the most famous sequences in cinema history and the stunt work is still breathtaking today.

  21. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Safety Last!

    In which true love, thanks to an inspired alliance with overzealous police work, spurs our dithering hero to feats of astonishing excellence. Top the clock to stop the clock. And anyway, ain't ancient LA lovely?

  22. nein's rating of the film Safety Last!

    The climb on the De Vore Department Store may be the best alegory of life ever made.

  23. Maudy Puteri Agusdina's rating of the film Safety Last!

  24. Scotch's rating of the film Safety Last!

    Even 90 years later, that climb is terrifying to watch. Silly fun.
