What a waste of talent...
What a waste of talent, especially Denzel with his amazing presence, and Ryan Reynolds that surprised me. That promising actor really took it to a whole new level this time. The rest of the cast consisted of great and amazing actors such as Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga, and Robert Patrick, but their roles literally and merely reflected STOPGAPS. No conflicts, no turning points, nothing that justified their motivations. The movie is too predictable, especially with all these thugs chasing our characters and running around.

I you saw the Bourne films, you'll feel that Daniel Espinosa tried, and tried, and tried again in an awful way to copy-paste that movie beautifully done Paul Greengrass. Overusing the shaky-cam technique, the director dizzied us the whole movie with car chases, obscure fighting scenes, exacerbated with deafening shootouts. Furthermore, you'll notice that you will have to force yourself to focus on the characters mouths to understand what they are saying.

The script focuses on an action-thriller-Hollywood movie lacking substance. We could tell that the screenwriter is young in his ink where the story should not dictate the character's motivations, but it's him that should define the story motivated by his quest. While watching the movie, ask yourself what is the quest of Denzel? What is the quest of Vera Farminga? What is the quest of Brendan Gleeson? Where are the conflicts, obstacles?

This movie seriously lacks of respectable dialogues, cinematography, and editing. It's not about the legendary Tobin Frost, but about the legendary Denzel. Don't waste your money. Don't sit up front; you'll be dizzy as hell. Finally, even though, Denzel and Ryan tried their best to save this movie, rent all 3 Jason Bourne movies, and I guaranty you will have a better night.
Do you want to be the guy that lost Tobin Frost?
The spy who came in from the cold. This time it's Denzel Washington, who has been hiding for 10 years. Why do they consider him a traitor? Why did he suddenly come in?

Fans of Bourne will see nothing new here, but it s Denzel, with Brendan Gleeson as a bonus. Add Robert Patrick and Sam Shepard, and you have the makings of a real action flick.

A lot of bullets flying as you try to figure out who the bad guys and who the good guys are. It switches fast and the action never stops.

Not Denzel's best effort, but I'll take any Denzel.

And, you just knew how it was going to end. I hate predictability!
Finally Visible Battle Scars
Much like the "Bourne" films, this movie was very fast paced. There was a substantial amount of action and some outstanding chase and fight scenes. There was not a lot of character development though. A little more of a back-story, especially in relation to Denzel Washington's character, would have been nice. Although several details remained unanswered, most of the credit I give Safe House is in regards to the fight scenes. People get shot, stabbed and beat up left and right. The characters get hurt, and get into even more fights and more hurt. There's no "miraculous healing" between fights like we see in most action movies. I was as worn as these characters were by the end of this movie. Reviewed by AN/NR 02-16-12
Utter Nonsense
I think 'Look Who's Talking' has a more realistic chance of happening than 'Safe House' ever would. The plot was laughable and the acting (minus Denzel) was atrocious. Ryan Reynolds role of being the pompous, talky and moronic hero is starting to become ridiculous. He plays the same role in every movie and every movie he's in sucks.

Also, I'm a fan of the whole shaky camera since it makes you believe you're right there in the action a movie provides to you but 'Safe House' uses it waaayyyy too much, even for scenes where it's just a bunch of people talking. I became distracted by it and this hampered my experience.

If you're a big fan of the Bourne series and want to watch 'Safe House', do yourself a favor and pop in one of The Bourne Trilogy movies into your DVD player and watch those again. They're more enjoyable, less preposterous, and all have better acting than this turd called 'Safe House.'
Well Paced Tension With Good Chemistry From Washington & Reynolds
Though you've seen this story before, intelligence agencies running amok complete with moles, here you get compelling performances by Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Set in the post "wiki-leaks" aftermath, but before the Snowden debacle, it would seem the timing of a story about a host of rogue agencies and agents, who answer to no one, isn't too far fetched if somewhat hackneyed.

Safe House takes the viewer on a ride. Starting with Denzel's character, Tobin Frost, securing an ultra-sensitive file of who's who among international spies, it simply doesn't take but a few minutes to segue into heavy action. The filming of Frost's escape from a cadre of eastern types immediately engages the viewer. As Frost exhausts his "outs" he simply finds himself at the doorstep of the American Embassy in South Africa. Frost, a turned ex-CIA agent, realizes he'll be arrested. He'll take this outcome over the sure death which was quickly closing in. Being an extreme high-value target with, perhaps, a most damaging piece of in tel, Frost is moved to a "safe house". Naturally, the safe house is anything but and true to the steady pace of the action it quickly goes sideways. Enter Matt Westin, the safe house host, whose boring job is about to boil over into deadly territory - so much for boredom. What follows is a harrowing run from those who would seek to kill Frost with Westin still believing his job is to bring in Frost.

The problem is a mole from within constantly gives Frost's location away. Combine that with a CIA director who would rather "kill 'em all" instead of risk the file seeing the light of day and everyone is expendable. Thus, as Westin seeks to bring Frost in he begins to realize the real enemy isn't Frost. It's the excellent interplay between Denzel Washington's Tobin Frost and Ryan Reynold's Matt Westin that keeps a story you can basically guess urgent. As already mentioned, the story is constant motion. Inserted are some fully realized excellent chase scenes both on foot and in vehicles. Yes, these scenes are done really well as they drive home the dire situation Westin's job has suddenly become.

The ending has a few twists too which make for a satisfying finale. All in all, a recommended spy conspiracy film despite a lack of originality. Well done.
Could have been good
This could have been a pretty darned good movie. Denzel was great and Ryan Reynolds held his own. The story was pretty intriguing, the car crashes pretty authentic. However...1) It was mostly a two hour chase replete with just about everyone being killed 2) The mostly hand held camera filming is dizzying. When will filmmakers realize this is NOT creative? 3) The scenes change about every 2 seconds which is horrific. Do filmmakers think we are all ADD? 4) At key points in the movie I couldn't understand what the actors were saying.

I was close to walking out after about 20 minutes but stuck with it because of Denzel's performance. Being generous with 4 stars.
Capetown tourism
OK I live in Capetown so I may have a jaundiced view of this movie . First of it is a below average conspiracy movie of no remark . The thing that struck me about it was how the script was somehow manipulated to show various parts of the Cape (or Capetown). Was this actually written in conjunction with cape tourism , It certainly looks that way . Maybee the production company got discounts on filming fees in return for showcasing various parts of the cape .Oh and by the way if you have to have a car chase at least have some kind of continuity reality to it for the viewers who are from the place were you are filming , you cut from Capetown central to nearby highways to suburbs and townships 20 miles from downtown in the same chase , I wont even start on the white elephant world cup football stadium ,Ridiculas , Anotherthing Capetown is still extremely racist and divided by suburb on race lines of old , the idea of a white man living in langa by choice is f*cking laughable So if your not from Capetown its just about watchable but please don't think your getting any sense of this town from the movie
A fast-paced race against time featuring an experienced mentor and an up-and-comer.

MINI-REVIEW: A fast-paced race against time featuring an experienced mentor and an up-and-comer.

RATING: Wait for the instant download (Rating System: "See it in theaters," "Wait for the instant download," "Don't waste your time."

Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is a green CIA agent looking to make his transition from ordinary agent to field agent. He is stuck with the boring job of sitting in a "safe house" - a secret location for detaining prisoners ("house guests") until they can be moved to a more secure location.

Things are pretty boring until Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) is brought it. Frost is a notorious double agent known for his ability to evade capture. No sooner is Frost secured in Weston's safe house than a bunch of bad guys storm the place to capture Frost. Weston takes charge and ushers Frost out of the building. Weston wants to get Frost to a new safe house but he is nagged by the question of how the bad guys knew where to find Frost – there must be a mole in the CIA. Now Weston must deliver Frost, discover Frost's secret, and expose the CIA mole before they find him. And we're off…

"Safe House" uses the device of the mature, older, agent as mentor to push the Weston character to look at himself and ask hard questions: Is this the life I want? Will I ever have a decent relationship? Who can I ever really trust?

Denzel Washington walks effortlessly through the role of Tobin Frost. He manipulates Weston by forcing him to think about things that, as a younger man, Frost had to confront himself. I haven't seen Washington in a movie in a long time. I was pleasantly surprised to see the actor that I remembered from such fine movies as "Philadelphia" and "Crimson Tide." He was just as good as ever, and had mellowed with age.

Ryan Reynolds held his own against Washington, playing the younger, inexperienced agent who learns fast. Reynolds has had a lot of screen time recently in such movies as "Green Lantern," "The Proposal," and "The Change Up." He usually plays a comic character – which is appropriate as he holds a comic resume ("Van Wilder," and TV's "Two Guys, A Girl, and a Pizza Place.") Here, he plays a full-on action hero to Washington's more experienced mentor.

The dynamic between these two players is exciting to watch. There is no apparent competition on-screen (which is so often the case when mega- personalities come together). Instead, there is a wonderful creative collaboration that results in an entertaining action flick.

Sadly, the surrounding plot is pretty predictable and does not support the two players. The action is acceptable, but the real movie is about the older, wiser man guiding the younger man. Perhaps it isn't just the characters who are playing out the mentor/mentee relationship, but the actors as well.

So, for a predictable action/spy plot with two fine actors playing their roles perfectly, I can only recommend that you wait for the instant download.
Another turd for the American public
One definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results.

Therefore, I must be insane because I keep thinking American-made espionage movies are going to have a consistent, believable plot instead just a bunch of hyped-up, glossy BS.

I have learned my lesson this time.

Safehouse kept me and the rest of the audience laughing incredulously at the sheer absurdity that unfolded again and again in this tremendously silly film. Allow me to diagram the plot for you:

01. A hit squad - hired by the CIA - knows where their rogue agent is and converges on him to kill him.

02. Rogue agent escapes, only to turn himself in to US government.

03. Bumbling CIA team tries to make him talk, only to be ambushed by original CIA team.

04. Rogue CIA agent is saved by silly patriotic CIA agent.

05. Bumbling CIA leaders argue.

06. Silly patriotic CIA agent tries to turn in rogue agent only to be attacked by original CIA team.

07. Rogue agent escapes and is later recaptured by silly agent.

08. Silly agent is attacked by another CIA agent.

09. Silly agent learns CIA is corrupt.

10. Rogue agent dies and silly agent goes rogue.

So, in other words, the CIA attacks the CIA to try to prevent the CIA from learning that the CIA has dirt of the CIA. Yeah, that makes sense!

In addition to all this garbage, the CIA strike team kills a boatload of innocent civilians, does millions of dollars of property damage, gets two of their top people killed, and then just lets the guy with the damaging intel just walk away at the end. So what was the point of the whole movie?

Also, if the CIA knew where rogue agent Denzel Washington was at the beginning of the movie, why didn't they just kill him up front and be done with it?


The only saving grace this movie has is Denzel Washington who, as always, is a fine actor who conveys depth, empathy, and strong acting. Ryan Reynolds' acting, however, is pretty awful. Throughout the whole movie, he looks constipated and is entirely unbelievable.

The sub-plot, if you want to call it that, with his girlfriend is completely pointless and adds nothing to the film.

This film had a $85 M budget. That money could have been better used teaching bullfrogs how to play the ukulele.
Denzel Washington delivers once again
¨Remember rule number one: you are responsible for your house guest. I'm your house guest.¨ I can't remember ever watching a Denzel Washington film and being disappointed; he always seems to bring his game or at least choose interesting projects because I always end up enjoying his movies. He is one of the best actors of our time and he is really entertaining. Safe House may not be original or have the best script in the world, but it does have plenty of thrills and good performances to keep you at the edge of your seat throughout the movie. It has several similarities with the Bourne franchise, although not nearly as well crafted. This is a movie that won't stick with you long, but it is good enough to entertain you for two hours and put a smile on your face. I know I can always count on Denzel Washington, and this movie is also powered by Ryan Reynolds performance as well. Both actors bring their A game and deliver a solid entertaining film. I don't know how relatively unknown Swedish director, Daniel Espinosa, got such talented actors to star in his film, but he can be thankful for it because this movie probably wouldn't have worked without them. The script written by David Guggenheim isn't original, several scenes are predictable, but that didn't ruin the film for me. I still had a great time with Safe House. I really didn't like some of the shaky camera work, but I guess it's a trend for several directors these days.

Denzel Washington is Tobin Frost, a former CIA agent who is now one of the most wanted men in the world after going rogue and selling classified information. He runs into a former MI6 agent in Cape Town, South Africa who gives him a disk containing what would seem as some very important information because as soon as he receives it he has dozens of people shooting at him and running after him. Frost has no other alternative but turn himself in at the United States consulate office before these men can get to him. Frost is taken to a Safe House which is guarded by rookie agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds). Matt's contact is David Barlow (Brendan Gleeson) who lets him know that the guest will be arriving soon. When Frost arrives along with the CIA team they are ambushed by the same men that were after him before, and Matt has no other choice but to escape with Frost before these guys get to him. Matt has to deal with protecting Frost while at the same time not allowing him to escape and also figuring out who he can trust in the CIA agent because apparently someone is trying to get to them. Matt is forced into having to protect the enemy, but he will soon find out that the enemy could also come from within.

Safe House will probably be one more of those movies you will forget all about because it lacks originality and has nothing memorable about them, but I guarantee you will be entertained during two solid hours thanks to some good performances from Washington and Reynolds. There are also some interesting secondary actors like Brendan Gleeson, Vera Farmiga, Ruben Blades, Robert Patrick, and Sam Shepard who bring their talents to the table, but the truth of the matter is that the success of the film relies entirely on Reynolds and Washington who have proved yet again to be great and entertaining actors. These guys are doing what they do best: action thrillers and despite not having remarkable material to work with they still manage to entertain and keep us at the edge of our seats. Safe House is an enjoyable film, but just don't expect much more than that. Not among Washington's best work, but even mediocre Washington can carry a movie.
