An overall good movie!
Matt Weston, played by Ryan Reynolds, is a young CIA operative charged of taking care of a CIA safe house located in South Africa. He lives a life between his job and his girlfriend, a job that turns out to escalate outside his comfort zone and experience. Tobin Frost, played by Denzel Washington, is a fugitive on the run from everything and everyone. The two protagonists clash together trough unexpected events. The story grows from there, where two men, one professional and one novice forms a bond, where the novice keep getting challenged in the fight of survival.

Safe House follows the line of almost every espionage/conspiracy classic out there, even so it keeps you interested and involved in the story. Sadly the camera work was bit too fast at times to hang along and you have to rewind to see what people actually did or say.

Overall this is a good movie, enjoyable, lots of action and excitement. Though it was bit thin in some areas, it held up.

I give it a 7/10!

Completely Average, with lazy writing
I can only imagine the 7.0 rating for this film comes from affection for Denzel Washington or Ryan Reynolds, but other than the details of what Denzel has and how Reynolds is going to find him again, the story is old, old, old.

There are easy tip offs to bad/lazy writing (or studio interference). One of the most dependable is that the villain or bad guy or bully is a professed Christian. I know, that's shockingly original. The other tip off of horrendously lazy and creatively bankrupt thriller writing was displayed in this film (and has been done to death by others): *SPOILER, SPOILER* THE VILLAIN IS A BAD CIA AGENT. Whoa, never saw that coming (in the first four minutes of the film). And, the writer/producers just kicked up their laziness a notch by *SPOILER SPOILER* giving us the CIA willing to cover it all up to protect their reputation.

The director tried for a more interesting approach to telling the story, by playing with the chronology of time for short periods within select segment, but, believe me, this was no "Memento." I kept watching, hoping the movie would be better than it was. It could have been really good, I mean, look at all the acting talent that went to waste, like Brendan Gleeson and Reuben Blades. But the most under-used actor was the amazing Vera Farminga in a thankless and one-dimensional role as the tough case-manager chick in The Company. Giving an actress of her caliber such crap should be a creative Felony, punishable by ten years of directing webisodes.

Fast-paced fun with two outstanding leading men performances!
'SAFE HOUSE': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Denzel Washington is teamed with Ryan Reynolds for this action/thriller buddy film. It was directed by Daniel Espinosa and written by David Guggenheim. It tells the story of a rogue CIA agent fugitive and a rookie CIA agent on the run together after the safe house the fugitive was being held at is attacked. Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson and Sam Shepard costar. The movie is intense, fast-paced fun with two outstanding leading men performances.

Washington plays Tobin Frost, a former CIA agent who is said to have gone rogue and is now their most wanted fugitive. Reynolds plays Matt Weston, a rookie CIA agent who is tasked with guarding a safe house in Cape Town, South Africa. When Frost turns himself in to the American Consulate, in order to avoid capture by mercenaries pursuing him, he's taken to Weston's safe house. While Frost is being interrogated mercenaries attack the safe house and Frost and Weston flee. Weston tries to keep Frost under control while avoiding their pursuers and trying to make their way to another safe house. In the process he learns from the veteran CIA agent and begins to question his guilt as the two, of course, oddly bond.

Washington and Reynolds aren't the best pairing but both do their parts well. Their characters are fully developed and interesting. The directing is energetic and sufficiently flashy as well, keeping the story going at just the right pace to keep it involving. Not a masterpiece but still an entertaining suspense thriller.

Watch if you like mindless shootouts
Taking into consideration the quality of Washington's previous movies, this is perhaps one of his worst ever. Endless shootouts with no purpose, flat done-to-death story. I was hugely surprised that this is what he has to say yes to and waste a year's worth of work for! I was tempted to leave 45 minutes later. And when I left when the movie was over, I regretted I didn't leave earlier. Miss it, and save your cash. I would really like to know how in hell this movie got a seven and why!

The movie is a long never-ending scene after scene of shoot outs (and as usual nobody gets hurt), and car chases that are very lame. One after the other, after the other, after the other, after the other. No thrill in it either. I cant bet you that in a few months time when many enough movie goers went to see it, the rating will drop to around 5.

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?

Duh!

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.

Time's a-wasting. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock...
The 2012 Denzel Washington film Safe House is a film I have enjoyed watching a few times over the past couple years since its release. The film is action packed, with practical effects, and the acting for the most part is top notch. With Washington making so many great movies over the course of his career this film will get overlooked by many, which is a shame. I will be breaking down this film as well as the Blu-Ray special features. The following is my review of Safe House.

The film was written by David Guggenheim and his script was on the Black List for some time before it ever took off. This was his first major film and has since wrote the Nicolas Cage direct to home video movie Stolen. Thankfully it did get made as Guggenheim wrote a pretty good story. The film follows Matt Weston(Ryan Reynolds) as he is working at a CIA safe house. His job has normally been business as usual with nothing out of the ordinary going on. That is until one day former CIA agent Tobin Frost(Denzel Washington) pops back on the CIA radar. Frost is then transported to the safe house where Weston is working. Things eventually go north during Frost's interrogation when a terrorist group breaks into the safe house. Weston has to now protect Frost so that nothing happens to him. The story features some great story twists and turns that will keep your interest. So many of the films Washington does these days can be considered more of the same, but this film is very much different in terms of overall story. David Guggenhiem wrote a great story and one that will very much keep your attention.

The film was directed by Daniel Espinosa who made his major Hollywood debut with this film. He is currently working on one of the most anticipated films of 2015 called Child 44. Before this film I personally didn't know much about Espinosa, but after watching this film, I knew I was watching a great director at work. There are some very intense moments of action throughout the film. Most of the first half hour of the film has mid to high level action scenes. That really builds the momentum for the rest of the film. Not only are there some bigger action scenes like car chases for example, but there is also some intense hand to hand combat scenes. The action is done very well and is a great joy to watch. The acting is another area that is good overall. The film stars Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington in the lead roles with other great actors like Sam Shepard, Brendan Gleeson, Liam Cunningham, Rubén Blades, and Robert Patrick taking up some important secondary roles. An interesting fact is that Denzel Washington was actually waterboarded during this film. No stunt double on that scene. I don't say the movie has great overall acting because I've personally never been a huge fan of Ryan Reynolds. I don't think he is a bad actor, but I just find his style to be wooden or the same in every film. Espinosa for the most part is able to bring the entire cast together for a nice well rounded film from his directing to the acting performances. If you are a big action fan like myself, this is one film you surely shouldn't miss.

The film was scored by Ramin Djawadi who is known for scoring films like Iron Man and Pacific Rim(one of my favorite scores). While this film is much different compared to those two films I mentioned, his effect is still very good. Not great like on some of his other efforts, but his score adds some nice depth in the action scenes and in the build up to the end of the film. I would personally say the score is good, but not great, but those who like a good score won't be disappointed.

In closing, after having already watched this film a few times since its 2012 release, I must say that the film is still as fun as ever. The action scenes are amazing, and minus some less than perfect acting from Reynolds, this film is a must see film. Denzel Washington fans, like myself, shouldn't overlook this film especially with Washington making many great films lately. As I said this is a must see so do so as soon as you can. You won't regret it.

As I said above, I will also be going into the Blu-Ray special features as well. The Blu-Ray for this film features seven featurettes and runs for a total of about fifty minutes. So overall no bad at all for a film like this. The behind the scenes material really breaks down some of the bigger action scenes and combat scenes to show how they were filmed. This is great to see for special features fans like myself. Some other features break down the story and the CIA aspects and how the film makers really wanted to be authentic. This home video release is truly a good buy if you come across it at a good price below ten dollars. It is well worth adding to your collection.

8/10

A Really Good Action Thriller
Tobin Frost (Washington) has been transferred to a safe house after turning himself in to the American Embassy in South Africa. The CIA agent in charge of the safe house is rookie Matt Weston (Reynolds). However, not long after Frost is brought to the safe house, it is compromised by a gang of mercenaries who are trying to kill Frost. Weston manages to escape with his prisoner, however not only does this rookie have the responsibility of dealing with one of the CIA's most wanted rogue agents, he has the added task of trying to evade the mercenaries who want Frost dead. What was supposed to be a routine "interrogation" at the safe house has now turned into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse.

While not the best movie of this type, Safe House is still a pretty decent, fast paced action thriller that is well played out with both Reynolds and Washington delivering good performances. Washington brings a nice sort of menace - but nothing evil - to the character of Frost and we know how well he plays those parts because he's done it before in Training Day.

The story is well written that keeps you watching, even if it does tend to get a wee bit slow in places. I know that films can't have a good story AND be non-stop action at the same time, but there's just something that it lacks to make it that much better.

There are a few wee twists and turns, and I guess the main one is pretty predictable, but even with this it's still a well-structured plot and as the movie goes on, you actually start to wonder who the "bad guys" of the film really are as well.

All in all, Safe House is a good movie to watch, like I say, and if you enjoy good action thrillers then you won't go far wrong with this one.

Denzel Bourne : Twice the shaky cam and very little of the style and wit
First thing about watching "Safe House" in the theaters: do not, I repeat DO NOT, sit in the front half of the cinema; I would suggest sitting in the back row unless you want to get nauseated and dizzy. Why? The shaky cam is really bad on this movie. Even in the non-action scenes, the camera is never still and constantly moving. During action scenes the camera all over the place creating headache inducing jerkiness and bobbling that can only be described by comparing it to symptoms of deadly diseases. The constant camera movement in the non-action scenes is also so bad that during each and every conversation in the movie, it's slowly rocking side to side for absolutely no reason, giving sea-sickness.

Add to the shaky cam that half the movie is a close up of a close up. The faces take up most of the screen and go beyond even the field of vision. On top of that, add the way too much frequent cuts. It's a real eyeball and brain buster.

However, if you're one of these people who are immune to shaky cam, the next topic is of course Denzel. Denzel gives his greatest hits: the Denzel-against-the-world Denzel, the Training-Day Denzel and the drama Denzel. Denzel is supposed to be playing a character Tobin Frost, but it's like we are watching Denzel Washington do his thing rather than Tobin Frost.

Safe House borrows heavily from the Bourne movies, not just the shaky cam but the large screened command centers at the Pentagon and the mannerisms of the staff there. Another Bournesque element is the fights between trained agents; however in this movie, they just seem to be of lower quality with slower labored movements and the scenes reduced to a frantic blur. The singular car chase scene despite being the highlight of the action sequences, is also unsatisfying.

The real oddity of the movie is how philosophical it wants to be about lives of CIA "employees". The movie gives us these long sullen monologues on relationships, pasts and futures, innocent victims etc. These musings would probably have some gravity if any of the characters were more than half dimensional and possessed some sort of personality. What we end up in the movie are a bunch of really big talking heads, sprouting lots of hollow dialog and adding to that headache.

Other minor things, the water-boarding scene that the trailer alludes to completely flubbed. It is as exciting as watching someone water their lawn.

Speaking of product placements, "Safe House" has been commandeered as a product placement vehicle for a certain brand of car that only makes boxy SUVs. Each and every car in the movie is of this brand; I mean every government car, every bad guy car, all 3-4 cars jacked along the way is a boxy SUV. This way too silly and distractingly sticks out.

In summary, Safe House would have been a mediocre but watchable movie without the shaky cam. With the shaky cam, it's just a big headache inducing mess. Devout Denzel followers might get something out of it but for most action fans, I would suggest waiting for the DVD version which it is more suited for.

About 30 minutes of plot padded with an hour and a half of car chases
The plot- A CIA bureaucrat minding an seldom used "safe house" in South Africa plays host to the CIA's most notorious turncoat. Things break bad, and the facility is attacked, leaving the minder chasing the turncoat while being chased by unknown goons who want them both dead. A bit of espinoge and who can trust who leaves you guessing until you don't really care.

Denzel is okay in this, but the action scenes were repetitive and mindless. They also wreck a bunch of cars.. so there's that.

Barely worth watching once.

There was also the subplot with the French girlfriend which goes nowhere and is just filler.

'Safe House' is the most disappointing action film of all time.
Movie trailers give us previews of what the picture will be like 'Safe House' looked like an action packed thriller with an insane plot. Instead you get a typical cheesy action film with lame acting and boring drama. Ryan Reynolds stars as Matt Weston, a CIA agent working in a boring Safe House who one day is guarding notorious fugitive Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington)When the safe house is destroyed and attacked, Weston and Frost find themselves on the run from people trying to kill both of them, and to find Tobin Frost a new location to keep under control. This film has nothing shocking or entertaining about it what so ever, and at many times gets extremely boring. Denezel Washington has as much personality as a piece of cardboard in this film, and provides so dangerous freight or darkness in his character what so ever. Ryan Reynolds being a terrible actor gives his typical overdone performance and plays a lame character. Not one scene of action has good directing or action. The film is shot in a way that there is always something going on and it has a false intensity that drives each action scene, even though the scenes are predictable and have very minimum action. Daniel Espinosa as the director does a very overdone job. You can tell he worked hard on it by capturing lots of detail in his shots, just he doesn't make the film good. The scenes are terrible but the detail is average is a good way to describe it. Don't be fooled by the genies trailer making of 'safe House' The only good thing about this film is that the trailer can trick you beyond belief, and I was a victim of that advertisement.
