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.

Disappointing
I was really expecting more. A spy-thriller with these two playing the lead roles? Sign me up! But I was disappointed. The story, which is fairly generic, could've been enhanced and made more entertaining by the camera-work and the acting performances, but sadly both weren't very good at all. The camera-work is often wobbly, which is acceptable in small amounts during action scenes because it makes the scene more realistic, but in this one it's just used too much and sometimes even outside of action scenes. And the acting...again, I was really expecting more. Denzel Washington is a personal hero of mine, but in this film he either doesn't get enough dialog to display the talent he has, or he has somehow lost it. And Ryan Renolds...well I never really liked him, but I thought he'd be perfect for this part. As it turns out though, someone like Ryan Gosling would've been much better at displaying the emotions that the character of Matt Weston is overpowered by near the end. All in all this film is no more than just another spy thriller, and certainly not something I would ever watch again. Pity.

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

Mediocre, forgettable movie.
Tobin Frost: "I'm already in your head".

Safe House is about a house under the protection of the CIA becomes a target and it is up to the facility's house sitter to extract the criminal in hiding and take him to a secure location.

Let me start off with the goods: Denzel Washington in this movie nails it as the smart guy who will mess with you mind no matter what. I feel really sorry for Ryan Reynolds for being in movies that mostly bomb at the box office or him getting slammed by critics, but in this film he did a good job, but his character in the movie was really boring. Played the normal boring guy that the movie wants us to care about but you don't. Some of the action scenes where really well done, but some of the action scenes where shot poorly.

Now for the bad: The character's in the film are mostly bland or really dull to watch, but Denzel character was the only one that was interesting in the movie. As I said before about some of the action scenes. It was like they give a monkey a camera and let it shot some of the action scenes. The trailer to the movie give away so much of the movie that predict every scene that was going to happen.

Overall Safe House is a mediocre, forgettable movie with good performance in it.

Fast-Moving, Entertaining Film!
Safe House, despite some action clichés and predictability, is still a very good action film. It has a large amount of action scenes whether they are car chases or gun battles, but they are well-made. This film actually would work well with the Bourne films since this film is essentially in the same format. Another thing going for this film is starpower. It has two durable, bankable stars in Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.

Daniel Espinosa's film is about a guy, Matt Weston who works for the CIA and has been housekeeper for a safe house in South Africa. He gets his first real assignment when infamous smuggler and ex-CIA, Tobin Frost ends up at the house. But when the house is breached, Tobin and Matt must become unlikely allies in order to live.

Both Denzel and Reynolds give solid, credible performances. I can't come to expect less for Denzel since he does a great job in every movie he's in. I can't picture Reynolds as an action star, but he does a very good job as Weston.

Overall, this is a solid action film that is very entertaining. I like these kind of movies so I don't care if I have seen this kind of plot before. Of course, Denzel helps since he brings more quality to a film. This film has got it all for action junkies: gun battles, car chases, rogue CIA agents, explosions, shaky camera, etc. This is a really fun film and I rate it 9/10.

A rather boring action flick
So I was on the lookout for Denzel Washington films, with him being one of my favorite actors of all times and I stumbled upon this. It looked sort of like a good, thriller intense action film so I decided why not. It was not what I was expecting.

First of all, it was kind of boring. I mean the plot was limited, it added too much to meet its one-hour time frame. It gave of this almost, depressing feel to it. It's hard to explain, but nothing put you on the edge. Very predictable. It was a waste of my time really.

Secondly, where did Denzel Washington go wrong? Possibly one of my least favorite performances from him. He was still good but just didn't give off the usual feeling you get from him in his acting. Casting Ryan Reynolds was a mistake. His strong suit is comedy, putting him in serious roles doesn't usually work -apart from the expectations - I don't see why they would think it would this one.

Overall, if you are looking for a good action, go to one like Jason Bourne. This one really isn't worth your time. It has limited action, the dialogue is stiff. I'm a bit disappointed really. I'm sorry Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington, you guys let me down.

High octane action that rarely lets you breathe
Going into Safe House, I was expecting a more stylistic movie with interesting lead performances. So I was a little surprised to see a more basic and conducted movie that had great action scenes and impressive lead performances. The story follows a young CIA Rookie (Reynolds) that is tasked with the objective of guarding a captures rogue agent (Washington). But after their safe house is attacked, he must go on the run with this experienced operative who will stop at nothing to gain the advantage. Throughout the movie both protagonists showcase their characters correctly and seem to be on the same level. As far as supporting cast goes, the roles are handled very well by experienced actors such as Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson and Sam Shepard. However the star of the film has to go to its great action sequences which offer high octane chases and gritty combat scenes. Considering you have the Denzel Washington among your leading stars, you are halfway to assuring success for your film. Thankfully the rest of the cast & crew deliver and the movie ends up being quite satisfactory for what it is.

Rating: 6,5/10

Better than Expected
I'm having trouble finding anything I want to watch on Netflix these days. As I get older, I get pickier with my time.

I.e.: I stopped watching the first Captain America partway through and have never resumed it. I'm like that with TV shows too. Sometimes you have enough and are unwilling to put in the time to see how it ends.

I decided to give this a go. Realized partway through that I'd seen it previously, but it was good enough to finish til the end.

I'm not Ben Aflecks biggest fan, but he was alright.

This wasn't perfect, but it was pretty watchable.

One of the better action movies I've seen in awhile.

Shake, Shake, Shake... Shake, Shake, Shake... Shake That Camera...
If there wasn't so much expository dialog about how formidable Denzel Washington's rogue agent Tobin Frost is, maybe he wouldn't have to live up to all that infamy once the story's underway.

Beginning with a botched heist in South Africa, leading to Frost turning himself in to the C.I.A. and taken to the first of three Safe Houses, where he's watched by a young agent Weston played by an extremely serious Ryan Reynolds.

But there are a lot of really nasty people who want him dead, and the first of several bombastic action scenes, practically impossible to view as the camera rocks back and forth without ceasing, leads to Weston, with Frost as his prisoner, taking to the streets – till Frost shakes his tail and… When the duo meet again, and we realize the bad guys are supposed to be the good guys (like in every Hollywood film involving the C.I.A.), it's a desperate fight for both agents, now teamed up, to stay alive.

Washington turns in a surprisingly bland performance as a character who, like a Hannibal Lector, is supposed to get into people's minds; and for an agent of his legendary caliber, he seems more confused than cunning. Reynolds holds onto a one-note scowl, and a side story with his beautiful, put-upon girlfriend means absolutely nothing.

But it's that ever-shaky camera that really sinks this clichéd thriller. Take plenty of sea sick pills before getting on this ride, and prepare to blame America all over again. It's getting awfully tiresome...

Same Old, Banal Story With One New, Unsurprising Feature. ♦ 56%
The title suggests everything, but they say - don't judge a movie by its title. So there I go.

A sequence involving Denzel Washington towards the end truly says everything about the casting & their performances. Brilliant. Ryan Reynolds has pulled off this action thriller with absolute finesse. But, the supporting cast either went too cranky, or were expressionless. Or that's the way these CIA people look. Doesn't matter.

What matters is the story & it is clichéd. Top to bottom. Every single detail in the plot could be found in some other run-of-the-mill action movie where some agents are corrupt & blah blah blah. It starts up well, successfully creating a suspense in our minds, but then it gradually loses pace, not with the narration, but with the scheme. "Same old story," you think!

Safe houses are depicted with less details and that is the feature I was talking about. Nothing interesting. Action sequences are very good, guns go off here & there, weaponless stunts are worth watching, music is upbeat, direction is good, average cinematography, predictable twists, much more predictable climax & superfluous artwork/stage-work. A critical 5.6/10.

BOTTOM LINE: Nothing new, it has to offer. Not Recommended unless it is pure mêlée/weapon action you are looking for.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
