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.

This is probably the best thriller in a while, very realistic and gritty action and car chases, cool story that is paced well and keeps you interested, Reynolds and Washington are both top of their game and give 110 percent, story has a few little twists, overall if thrillers are your cup of tea this will go down nicely.

 SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR ONCE

I really enjoyed Safe House due to the plot. I thought the storyline was just excellent, and the chemistry between the two actors was top standard, even ones a good guy, ones a bad guy. It was just brilliant. I left the cinema feeling very very surprised, in a good way that I enjoyed it as much as I did, as I didn't really have high expectations before I went to see it - to fans of crime and action sort of mixed together, watch this. And prepare to be startled.

This is a great action thriller and although it's nothing we have not seen many times before it does offer great performances from Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, as the story centres around the legendary spy Tobin Frost (Washington) has managed to elude capture for over a decade, this is due to him being one of the best op's men the CIA's ever trained and he uses his experience as an ex-intelligence officer to be one step ahead of the goverments persuit. He's wanted because of selling military secrets to the highest bidder and the damage he could cause could be immeasurable as all the dirty little secrets of double cross's and bribes could be revealed.
Ryan Reynolds plays Matt Weston who's frustrated by his inactive post in Cape Town as a "Housekeeper" as he aspires to be a full fledged case officer, he's a loyal company man who has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When his first and only occupant proves to be the most dangerous operative he will ever cross and Weston is drawn into a very shady game.
The film is very well paced with some fantastic action as the two stars try and evade everyone who wants Frost. Reynolds really does hold his own against the star power and talent of Washington and he portrays a man out of his deapth very convincingly with moments of panic.It's also well directed and the South African locations are brilliant. The plots good and keeps you guessing who's on who's side until the end and although un-original makes for a very entertaining , well acted action thriller.

 Entertaining, If Slightly Predictable Action Thriller

CIA agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is stuck in a dead-end position looking after a safe-house in Cape Town, South Africa. When Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) is brought into his custody he is given an unexpected chance to prove himself to his superiors.

Featuring all manner of gunfights and car chases, many of which are very well shot, and thanks to very good central performances from Reynolds and Washington everything moves along at a good pace. However after an interesting opening Safe House settles into a rather over familiar plot in which the duo attempt to keep highly sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands. Many of the plot twists, including the ending, are also rather predictable meaning that, while it is more than watchable, this is not really a must see movie.
