Utter Nonsense
I think 'Look Who's Talking' has a more realistic chance of happening than 'Safe House' ever would. The plot was laughable and the acting (minus Denzel) was atrocious. Ryan Reynolds role of being the pompous, talky and moronic hero is starting to become ridiculous. He plays the same role in every movie and every movie he's in sucks.

Also, I'm a fan of the whole shaky camera since it makes you believe you're right there in the action a movie provides to you but 'Safe House' uses it waaayyyy too much, even for scenes where it's just a bunch of people talking. I became distracted by it and this hampered my experience.

If you're a big fan of the Bourne series and want to watch 'Safe House', do yourself a favor and pop in one of The Bourne Trilogy movies into your DVD player and watch those again. They're more enjoyable, less preposterous, and all have better acting than this turd called 'Safe House.'

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.

Sissy Meltdown Shatters Tough Guy Veneer
Mild mannered Steve Harrigan, a TV talking head, underwent water-boarding on air. He should have been the protagonist, because junior spook Ryan Reynolds had a sissy fit when his organization decided to water-board rogue agent Denzel Washington.

"Is this legal?" Reynolds asked breathlessly, as the movie used camera angles, dramatic scene switches and shock-horror music, as if a government agency water-boarding an American perceived traitor were the same as beheading him.

This happened about ten minutes into the movie. I immediately stopped watching, weary of the agitprop prevalent in most movies, and more of the trivial Bush bashing. Pathetic.

Well Paced Tension With Good Chemistry From Washington & Reynolds
Though you've seen this story before, intelligence agencies running amok complete with moles, here you get compelling performances by Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Set in the post "wiki-leaks" aftermath, but before the Snowden debacle, it would seem the timing of a story about a host of rogue agencies and agents, who answer to no one, isn't too far fetched if somewhat hackneyed.

Safe House takes the viewer on a ride. Starting with Denzel's character, Tobin Frost, securing an ultra-sensitive file of who's who among international spies, it simply doesn't take but a few minutes to segue into heavy action. The filming of Frost's escape from a cadre of eastern types immediately engages the viewer. As Frost exhausts his "outs" he simply finds himself at the doorstep of the American Embassy in South Africa. Frost, a turned ex-CIA agent, realizes he'll be arrested. He'll take this outcome over the sure death which was quickly closing in. Being an extreme high-value target with, perhaps, a most damaging piece of in tel, Frost is moved to a "safe house". Naturally, the safe house is anything but and true to the steady pace of the action it quickly goes sideways. Enter Matt Westin, the safe house host, whose boring job is about to boil over into deadly territory - so much for boredom. What follows is a harrowing run from those who would seek to kill Frost with Westin still believing his job is to bring in Frost.

The problem is a mole from within constantly gives Frost's location away. Combine that with a CIA director who would rather "kill 'em all" instead of risk the file seeing the light of day and everyone is expendable. Thus, as Westin seeks to bring Frost in he begins to realize the real enemy isn't Frost. It's the excellent interplay between Denzel Washington's Tobin Frost and Ryan Reynold's Matt Westin that keeps a story you can basically guess urgent. As already mentioned, the story is constant motion. Inserted are some fully realized excellent chase scenes both on foot and in vehicles. Yes, these scenes are done really well as they drive home the dire situation Westin's job has suddenly become.

The ending has a few twists too which make for a satisfying finale. All in all, a recommended spy conspiracy film despite a lack of originality. Well done.

probably was best to see in a theater
Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington need to go to a "Safe House" - if they can find one - in this 2012 film.

Reynolds plays Matt Weston, a CIA rookie in charge of a Cape Town safe house. A rogue agent, Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington), is caught and brought there and after that, this is no safe house. Everyone wants what Frost has, including mercenaries who enter into a shootout. Frost and Weston take off for another safe house. As these things go, it's not long before Weston isn't sure who his friends are, especially when some of Frost's predictions about how the CIA will handle his escape turn out to be true.

I saw this as a rental, and it's probably the type of film that needs to be seen in a theater. There are car chases, shootings, beatings, and gunfights galore - solid action - probably better experienced in a theater.

Washington and Reynolds are both excellent, and create great characters. The rest of the characters aren't well developed - understandably, since Washington and Reynolds have the most to do.

The script is derivative and predictable, but the ending really wasn't. This is an entertaining movie if you like constant action. Unfortunately for me it wasn't as compelling or surprising as one of the Bourne films.

Criminally Underrated
Judging this movie strictly on the basis of entertainment value would surely give a 10/10. The action is non-stop and certainly intense throughout. The fight choreography is also extremely well done, while they don't adopt the "Bourne" method of just shaking the camera rapidly throughout the scene to give the impression of quicker and more complex fighting moves. The fight scenes with Ryan Reynolds, in particular, are shot in a way that show each individual move, which was incredible to watch.

As for the acting, Denzel needs no description and was absolutely ideal for the role. I knew exactly what kind of stellar performance I was going to see immediately upon his first line with the MI6 agent. Ryan Reynolds was the surprise here, as I had little to no respect for his acting ability prior to this role. His casting as the protagonist actually slightly deterred my interest in seeing the movie initially. I've now been on the Reynolds bandwagon since viewing Safe House due to how well he portrayed this character. His acting specifically after the last fight scene in the desert safe house was quite impressive. The chemistry between Denzel and Ryan carries the film and makes their gradual character development all the more believable. Safe House should be recommended to any viewer hoping for some action packed entertainment.

I'll take it from here.....
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 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.

Safe house oh yeah.. Not so safe movie.
A stupid movie. I managed about 35-40 minutes. And the rating is 6.8?

Safe house are not safe. Car chase where the "hero" driving like an idiot, to call attention? Our hero call headquarters during car chase. What a script.?? In The headquarters are many people who pretend to work with this case , headquarters does not not have permission to use surveillance satellite, it is just for the military. What a script.?? Something headquarters did not know. What a script.?? Remember people we are talking top secret service.

Wild driving and car crashes, our hero takes no damage, bullets flying around his head, car windows shot out. Our hero are in one piece, not a detriment. What a script.?? More wild driving. The car (BMW) are full of bullet holes, our hero has come away and into a garage where he opens the trunk and the person in the trunk are not damaged, like a miracle, he also escaped the bullets. Here I stopped the movie - enough are enough.

What I wonder is: Why do Adults play in such a lousy movie? OK for the money I understand it, but not my money I have not paid anything to see this parody of a film

Found myself waiting for the movie to end.
I decided to see this film with my brother because the TV networks (not that I watch huge amounts of TV, but sometimes you simply cannot escape the ads) had been constantly playing the trailers, and in a way it intrigued me. However, once again, the axiom 'you can't judge a book by its cover' or in relation to movies, 'you can't judge a film by its trailer' come into play.

This is a spy thriller, and I must admit that I am become quite bored with these type of movies. Sometimes they are intriguing and exciting, other times, as in the case of this film, they are not. I did love the James Bond movies, and in many cases a lot of these movies (and the authors of the books behind them) are trying to capitalise on the success of the James Bond franchise. However, as can be expected, they do tend to make changes to the script to set it apart from the original.

As I said, some spy thrillers are really good (From Paris with Love, Chuck) but many of them end up being quite dull and long. This film does fall into the category of the 'Chuck clones' as I tend to call them. The reason that I set Chuck as a standard is because I really enjoyed the series. The clone aspect of it is that the protagonist tends to me a young man who wants to break into the spy world, and the movie is the first mission that he goes on, and upon success, he graduates to become a spy. In a number of cases though, the graduation results in huge embarrassment to the spy community (as in the case of this film).

Thus we can see the quest narrative playing out again, along with the theme of the character coming out on his own. In this film, the protagonist is a safe-house keeper, and is job is pretty much to mind a safe house. However, a former agent appears in the safe house, is tortured, and in the middle of the torture, the house is attacked and all the occupants, expect the former spy and the protagonist, escape. Seeing this as an opportunity to prove himself, the protagonist disobeys orders, and goes out to complete the mission.

Another theme is the idea of the passing on of a baton. We see this a number of times in Hollywood movies, where a major actor (say Sean Connery or Harrison Ford) come in as a supporting character, while a younger, up and coming actor, plays the role of the main protagonist. In a number of ways it can be seen as a major Hollywood star introducing a new actor, with a lot of potential, to take over his roles. Sometimes this happens, other times it doesn't. In my view, though, having grown up in the Eighties and Nineties, my mind tends to drift back to these famous actors of yesteryear, however the newer actors don't really impress me all that much.

Disappointing and weak story
I have seen the directors biggest success fast cash(snabba cash)which shows that Espinosa has potential but this is a weak international debut. Only Denzel saves this from to be turned into a TV movie. 90% of the shots are close up regardless of angle or point of the story which made me bored and tired. The story does not explain why Denzel is hunted and what for, the villains motives are not explained. Lot of unexplained fights and shootouts, the car chase was though a plus and edited well. The character learns nothing from their experience and do not change in anyway, there is no mutual respect and no chemistry in their relationship. all the plots are explained in the last 5 min of the film which makes it uneven and non committal.
