  • Editorial Reviews

    The first hint that Safe House will be a notch above the typical thriller comes from the list of supporting actors: Brendan Gleeson, Vera Farmiga, Sam Shepard, Rubén Blades--that's a smart cast. Then the movie starts quietly: Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) holding his girlfriend's hand, Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) having a drink with an old friend… then that friend gives Frost a microchip and Safe House takes off, accelerating with every scene as legendary rogue agent Frost ends up in the hands of newbie Weston, who's just supposed to watch the safe house where prisoners are held for interrogation. But now Weston is racing across Cape Town and Johannesburg, pursued by ruthless killers, his loyalties tested and manipulated by the infinitely charming Frost. Director Daniel Espinosa skillfully orchestrates jolting action sequences and distills quieter scenes down to their mesmerizing essence. Washington and Reynolds both give their characters emotional complexity and a sense of actual thought going on behind their charismatic movie-star eyes. The plot has its clichés (legendary rogue agent, crucial microchip, CIA corruption and whatnot), but this cast and director make Safe House a genuinely gripping thriller. --Bret Fetzer

    Product Description

    Tobin Frost (Oscar winner Denzel Washington), one of the CIA’s most dangerous traitors, resurfaces in South Africa after eluding capture for almost a decade. During his interrogation, the safe house he’s being held in is attacked by brutal mercenaries forcing rookie agent, Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) to take the infamous Frost on the run. As the masterful manipulator toys with his reluctant protégé, shaking the young operative’s morality and idealism, the unlikely allies must fight to stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them both dead. Packed with intense action and thrilling suspense, Safe House takes you on a deadly ride through a covert world where no one and no place is ever safe.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining February 27, 2012
    When the title of a movie is Safe House, one can assume that this CIA safe house in South Africa is any but safe for its intended guest, Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) a rogue CIA agent. Daniel Espinosa keeps the movie moving at a good clip with smart cinematography. Denzel Washington is believable and classy. Ryan Reynolds provides a good supporting role as a CIA safe house keeper. Overall, one of the best thriller action movies in the past year.

    If you are interested in other great CIA movies, please check out Body of Lies(Leonardo Dicaprio), The Recruit(Al Pacino with Colin Farrell), and Spy Game(Robert Redford with Brad Pitt).

    4.0 out of 5 stars YOU'VE DONE A FINE JOB. WE'LL TAKE IT FROM HERE February 19, 2012
    The action/drama/mystery film opens with a quick character build up of the multifaceted CIA agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds). He operates a safe house with nobody in it. He wants a European field assignment, but lacks department seniority.

    The movie switches to Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) obtaining an embarrassing electronic file from the MI6 in South Africa. "Frost", because he is cold. Denzel uses his expected savvy to escape. He is a rogue super agent who free lances, buying and selling information. In order to escape the bad guys, Tobin surrenders to the CIA. Now the questions are: Was this his original plan? What is on the file?

    Tobin is taken to our aforesaid safe house for intense interrogation.

    I loved the opening of the interrogation scene. The interrogator says, "I'm here to advise you of your rights. You're being held under national security order 600 which means you have none."

    Frost is too important of a person and the top secret safe house comes under attack. The young low level highly trained Matt Weston is now on the run with a man who is a master manipulator of people. To our list of unanswered questions we now add, "Who is the mole?"

    Ryan and Washington give us excellent performances. It had elements of the Bourne series that made this story interesting, but it doesn't quite measure up to that film. Cliche ending. I would say if you are a fan of the trilogy, check this one out.

    Multiple chase scenes, torture, killings, shoot outs, minor "roof top" jumping, car wreaks without explosions.

    1 f-Bomb, no sex, no nudity. Rated R for violence.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Safe Bet May 24, 2012
    By AELee
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    The acting was well done. Denzel is as good as always. Ryan Reynolds did a fabulous job. The two characters actually worked well together. The action was better than most films. For once in a film someone fired a shot in public and the police showed up also. The plot was not as tight as it could have been; but it worked. Not much of a thriller. This really was an all around good film and worth the price. I will recommend it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars it's good March 11, 2012
    I thought it was good even if most professional reviewers hated it. Very exciting movie. I left the theatre saying it was better than the Bourne movies. The script is pretty tight and the acting is good.

    3.0 out of 5 stars good but . . . June 19, 2012
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    this mirrored the Bourne movies too closely . . . agent stuck in the middle of action, woman leader trying to find him, rogue internal agent giving away the secrets. And of course the CIA is the corrupt agency . . . tired of the same old

    3.0 out of 5 stars Safe Movie May 22, 2012
    By DFAyer
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    It was a good movie but not great. Much was made of Frost as the ultra spook in the beginning of the movie and that was where this movie goes awry. It devolved quickly into an action film rather than a thriller. I expected the plot to utilize his psychological skills; pitting him against the CIA; but instead it became one long chase seen with no real surprises. Safe movie, guaranteed payday with Washington as lead, but disappointing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Safe House June 27, 2012
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Safe House is an intense spy-themed action thriller about a young CIA agent, Matt Weston, (Ryan Reynolds) stuck at a dead-end job as a "housekeeper" of a CIA safe house. After an attack on his facility, he must protect a potentially deadly, and rather devious, traitor, Tobin Frost, Denzel Washington) who's being pursued by terrorists hoping to recover a secret document. Frost comes to Capetown, South Africa to receive a highly-sensitive piece of information from an MI6 contact, he finds himself surrounded by enemy assassins, with little other choice but to surrender himself to the American Consulate, lest he be shot down in the street. Matt and Frost go on the lam, trying to stay ahead of their pursuers, while also entering into a deadly cat-and-mouse game of their own.
