Reviews

88
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Joe Williams
The action is contained within a coherent dramatic structure and the puzzle-box paranoia of spy-agency protocol.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
Safe House rockets along, taking a familiar formula and making it work - hard.
70
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
Though Safe House may be too violent and nihilistic for everyone's taste, it does have several crackerjack action sequences.
67
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Compared with a superior potboiler like "Salt," which messed with your brain in entertainingly far-fetched ways, Safe House is action-movie porridge gussied up into a less-clever-than-it-seems mystery.

Safe House (2012)


Matt Weston ('Ryan Reynolds' ) is a CIA rookie who is manning a safe house in Cape Town, South Africa, when Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) the CIA's most wanted rogue agent is captured and taken to the safe house. During Frost's interrogation, the safe house is overtaken by mercenaries who want Frost. Weston and Frost escape and must stay out of the gunmen's sight until they can get to another safe house.
