Movie review :Safe house


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.


  • This movie being set in cape town, south Africa was a good choice , had good scenery .
  • Denzel Washington was excellent in his role as always ,  Ryan Reynolds also put up a good performance.
  • It has non-stop action and the story line will keep you at the edge of your seat.


  • Some of the action scenes were seemed force and not really necessary.


Matt Weston: Don’t Worry, I’ll take it from here.

Tobin Frost: First rule is to protect your house guest. I’m your house guest.


It is not the best movie Dezel Washington has stared in , but it is still a very good movie. The story line has twists and turns , it is not predictable .  Ryan Reynolds was great in this movie , in most of his other work he is some-what of a comedic character ,but in this one he had a more serious role. He plays of a young, idealistic and ambitious field agent on his first assignment that is desperate to impress and get out of the boring ‘babysitting’ safe house job.

  1. :) An entertaining movie which is why we go, isn’t it. I enjoy Denzel and Ryan Reynolds gave a good performance in a serious vein. It’s the first movie I have seen him in and I think he could be a good Jack Ryan or maybe a a Jason Bourne if given the role. 
    Lots of action, explosions and gunfire. I always have a problem with these scenes where millions of bullets fly but no one seems to get hit and where a pistol holds an unlimited number of rounds but everyone seems to do it.
    I knew five minutes in who the bad guy was going to be, though.
    The show is worth a couple of hours. Go see it.
