Reynolds was great, never plays it real goofy, and so was Denzel Washington, I like how we where not sure what to of his character is he good or bad? Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleason, and Sam Shepard are also great too.
Great thriller, an absolute must-see! (by cleptoboy2014)
This movie will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time! I haven't seen an action-thriller this good since the Bourne trilogy! Ryan Reynolds delivers a performance that tops every other movie he's ever been in. A truly unrelenting piece of top shelf filmmaking! Denzel Washington gives the best good-bad guy performance of his career since Training Day. The action scenes are nothing short of spectacular, the writing is brilliant, and the story has countless twists and turns! This movie is destined to be one of the best films of 2012. It will rank very high up for fans of the <more>
Bourne trilogy, Taken, Unknown, and other action films of the same type. I've never seen fight sequences that have left me in such amazement, they are shot and choreographed in a way that I've never seen before, you really do believe that these two guys really do want to kill each other! This movie is an absolute must-see for movie goers of any kind!
Denzel is always good, when he's bad he's even better.Weston Reynolds is the rookie CIAin a dead beat job guarding a safe house. Denzel the most wanted CIA traitor is housed in his safe house. Whe the place is suddenly attacked in a gritty brutal action scene, Weston has to think on his feet, stay and fight or flee with CIA's most wanted.Denzel brings his usual sophistication to his role, he is well known for his low no-nonsense delivery of lines, believable with the right amount of grit. Reynolds is surprisingly good, he brings a face to the rookie CIA who has to learn the hard <more>
way trial by fire. It's almost metaphoric, Denzel being the seasoned veteran on CIA just as in life an ward winning talent working along side the newbie agent, newbie actor to action scene Reynolds. It has a refreshing scene showing the edgy shanties of Cape town you don't see in other films. It relies solely on the acting of Denzel and Reynolds and they equally carry their role. In the end it's about the betrayal, and framing of CIA where Denzel actually was good guy that the organization turned against and now on the run with damage provoking information It's up to Weston Reynolds to keep his integrity by blowing up the conspiracy. One of the most memorable lines---we'll take it from here--meaning you have been betrayed--cool. I enjoyed it, the action scenes are gritty and believable and keep you in the edge of your seats. I loved it I don't know what these other clowns are whining about, you try directing a movie, great action packed movies, great acting by the two leading actors, a lot of time depth is lacking in action movies, you actually feel for Denzel and Reynolds, go now and watch it!!!Reynolds should do more gritty roles and action, it actually suits him, stop with the comedy and Hollywoody movies like green lantern; good movie!!!!
I did not expect it to be this good. (by Nesvrstani)
I'll be honest. When I saw the trailer, I was madly excited. It looked fantastic. But then, after a while, I remembered, that the main point of a trailer is to do just that. Hype the film, while revealing literally all the main plot scenes and parts. I didn't know if it was the case with 'Safe House', since, hey, it's Denzel Washington. That man doesn't just do any role.I just got back from the movie theater, and am I glad that I was wrong. The movie is fantastic, electrifying. Do know that I don't just 'get off' on any action flick. In most cases, I just <more>
watch and forget. This was actually, fantastic. I don't have a single bad word to say about it, the way it was directed, acted or anything else. Everything was simply fantastic.I realize my words sound absurd, and the score looks the same, but it really is worth it. I didn't see an action movie this well written, and this well acted in a really, really long time. Of course, by the end of the movie, any experienced watcher will figure out the ending by himself, but even though you 'get it', it's still extremely fun to sit through and see how the pieces connect.I really hate long reviews, so I'm trying to make this one as short and sweet as possible. Lastly, have in mind that not one cast member failed his role. Ryan was fantastic, even better then I could've imagined a nice showing of his acting skills after Green Lantern and Change-Up , and Denzel, what to say that hasn't been already said about that man's acting. Phenomenal doesn't cut it.Go and see it. It's much better then anything else thats currently 'showing'.
"Safe House" is a exhilarating action thriller with explosive stunts and sequences. (by deanccastano)
One of the CIA's most wanted, Tobin Frost Denzel Washington , is back on the run after a ten-year disappearance. This alerts the CIA and sends their team to a gripping chase in Cape Town, South Africa. At a remote location, the CIA's safe house is guarded by a rookie operative, Matt Weston Ryan Reynolds . The house have been empty for years, involving no guests or action. At the arrival of Frost and the intelligence, a brutal investigation occurs. Phased by the presence of a notorious criminal, Weston becomes nervous and confused. In the midst of questioning, mercenaries invade the <more>
house and begins a killing spree in an effort to kidnap Frost as well. Frost reminds Weston, that as a house guest, he is to be protected. This sends Weston to a dizzying panic and eventually escapes along with Frost."Safe House" is a exhilarating action thriller with explosive stunts and sequences. The team behind the film stages multiple exciting scenes that involve beat down rooftops in the rural areas as well as heart-stopping car chases along the streets. Frost is an intelligent man. Being a former intelligence, who's gone rogue, he knows the rules and procedures. Most of the time, he's fascinated by watching Weston carry out his duties. Weston is continuously conflicted, looking for ways to hide Frost. Yet, Frost never makes it easy for him, as he tries to escape as well. Weston communicates with one of his supervisors, David Barlow Brendan Gleeson , to determine their next move. But, the gunmen are determined to kill Frost, forcing Weston to take matters into his own hands.Denzel Washington is an actor full of intensity. He can sit there and watch Reynolds do his thing and still convey the deepest of his character's emotions. He gives Frost both a terrifying presence and a sympathetic feel. Ryan Reynolds, on the other hand, manages to stand along Washington and give the same intensity. His wits and charisma works perfectly for his distressed rookie persona. The film succeeds best because of this tandem, allowing the actors to build a good enough relationship to carry out the entire film."Safe House" is a great action thriller with non-stop action. This is the first mainstream feature for Daniel Espinosa and he comes forth as promising due to his skillful camera work with the action scenes. One of the most impressive is the rooftop chase at night. The editing is pitch perfect as it allows the audience to feel the danger of the situation from each point of view. This film could have been bleak and predictable if the leads were miscast but Washington and Reynolds' enigma make the film satisfyingly fun and fresh.deanslisters.tumblr.com
Go see it. For the love of God. (by austincanfield)
After watching this movie at midnight there are several thoughts and emotions that hit me. First, the best 12 dollars I have spent on a movie in the longest I can remember. Second, I wish there was a way to convince ALL of my friends to go see it. An adrenaline rush with a great story to back it up. This movie does not leave you with that empty feeling that so many action movies do these days. Denzel delivers, and Reynolds steps up with an excellent performance. The continuous action and explosive plot are more than enough to keep you in your seat for 2 hours. I hope this is enough to <more>
convince all who see this review to fit this movie into their schedule in the near future. It takes a lot for me to even think of writing a review...go see it, please!
Safe House Sticks To The Formula, And It Works (by skitz1015)
A sign of a good CIA-operative-gone-rogue movie is that you never know who to trust until the end. And said movie is still good even if it doesn't stray far from the usual formula. Safe House sticks to the tried and true plot structure of this sort of movie, complete with that "wait, who's the bad guy?" twist and a super secret file that someone is killing to get their hands on, but it's engaging and both Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds are perfect in their roles. Very believable and you'll feel loyalty for them both. Oh and there's a romantic side story but <more>
it's almost, if not completely, irrelevant. I believe it's just supposed to give Reynolds' character some depth. You know, so we care about him.Anyway, gun fights aplenty and fantastic car chase and crash scenes will distract the audience from a few nonsensical plot holes. And just when I thought there was a lull in the excitement, about an hour fifteen in, crazed gunmen burst into the scene and startled me out of my lazy blinks and wandering mind right back into the action. The ending was satisfying, despite a couple more plot holes and a corny line or two. Overall, a go-see. Action/suspense seekers won't be disappointed.
Tobin Frost is a CIA agent who's turned rogue. When he is pursued by men who want to kill him, he goes to the American Consulate where he knows he will be arrested.When the CIA learns of this, it's decided to bring him to a safe house in Capetown. Shortly after they arrive, the men who chased Frost storm the safe house and kill everyone there.Matt Weston, the agent who's tasked with looking after the safe house, is the only one left, so he takes Frost and they go on the run. While on the run, Frost tells Weston that the only way those men found the safe house was that someone on <more>
the inside told them about it.Eventually Frost escapes and Weston is told to report to Langley but just as he's about to, he recalls something that Frost did that helps him figure out where he could be going.But just as he arrives, the men who are after Frost show up but Weston saves him and they head off. But Weston knows that Frost is holding something back....Denzel Washington is one of those actors that can open a movie regardless of the content. And here is another example. It's your usual story of corruption in the government, and Washington holds the answer.It's another great performance from the actor, but Frost is a different kind of character to the ones we are used to seeing.If you mix Harris from Training day and Creasey from Man on Fire, you comes up with the closest answer to Frost. The character on paper is despicable, but once the film gets going, he's not all bad after all, but still carries an evil streak with him.Reynolds has never been better than his performance here, and proves he has acting chops as well as the looks. The narrative is good, and the action is very loud and up close, but not as irritating as some are saying.So all in all, it's nothing special, you can pretty much work out who the bad guy is in the first five minute, but thanks to Washington and Reynolds, an average thriller, becomes thrilling.
Denzel Washington plays a rogue CIA agent hotly pursued by enemy agents who hands himself into the US. embassy in Cape Town as a way of escape from them. He is then taken to a "safe house" where he is to be interrogated but things go awry when the house is attacked by other agents wanting him. A young inexperienced CIA agent Ryan Reynolds must then try to take control and get the rogue agent to another safe house.This is the kind of film in which the audience doesn't know the good guys from the bad, including the CIA agents. There are double crosses and tons of explosive <more>
action, with plenty of hand held camera fast edit action scenes from director Daniel Espinosa there's a certain edgy power here, though too much of it can get on my nerves after a while . There is also a harrowing waterboarding scene.Washington's character, while considered a traitor to the U.S., is also regarded as a legend within intel circles, having been successfully on the run and eluding all attempts to capture him for a decade as he spills out secrets on various intelligence agencies for the money. Washington plays him as a cool professional, virtually unruffled by all around him, even during an interrogation in which illegal methods are employed against him.In a film in which so many characters are scummy or potentially scummy, I found myself rooting for Washington. Rogue agent or not, he is one cool customer, and I had to admire his style. Of course, Washington is a powerful screen presence. Any time he's on screen it's all but impossible to take your eyes off him.Ryan Reynolds, as the somewhat naive CIA agent dealing with him, is adequate, no more. The rest of the cast, including Sam Shepherd as the head of the CIA, is quite good.
