Safe House (2012)

Oscar winner Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in the action-thriller Safe House. Washington plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he's remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead. For the past year, Matt Weston has been frustrated by his inactive, backwater post in Cape Town. A housekeeper who aspires to be a full-fledged agent, the loyal company man has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When the first and only occupant he's had proves to be the most dangerous man he's ever met, Weston readies for duty. Tobin Frost has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIA's known, the ex-intelligence officer has given up assets and sold military intel to anyone with cash since he turned. From trading secrets to North Korea to aiding splinter cells, the damage he's done to the U.S. is immeasurable. And he's now back on the reservation with a secret. As soon as Frost is brought in for debriefing, mercenaries come and tear apart Weston's safe house. Barely escaping, the unlikely partners must discover if their attackers have been sent by terrorists or someone on the inside who will kill anyone standing in the way. Now it's up to Weston to figure out who he can trust before they're both eliminated from the game. More »

    This is the movie I was waiting to see and it didn't let me down. Safe House is a great, but not excellent film. Has many of the elements in the film been done before yes, but the writer and director did a good job making the story and movie their own. The two best things about the movie are the action, which is excellent, and the two leads Denzel Washington and Ryan Renolds. The two actors had great chemistry and it showed in the film. What kept it from getting a higher rating were two things. The first the force cut back scenes to Langley VA, which I thought took away from the film. The second was what many films that have some sort of traitor or double agent in them in that it doesn't work. That's the biggest problem with the film. The writers and director try to keep you guessing as to who the bad guy in the CIA is, but they do it badly. First they really only give you two people to guess between and it's obvious it's one of them. Then writers don't hide it well as if you pay attention you can pretty much guess who the bad guy is with in about a half hour.

    That being said this is a great action movie with two good actors.
