Safe House (2012)
Safe House review
This flick doesn't capture your attention in terms of plot, but more on the action sequences. Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is an agent who encounters an ex-CIA agent named Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington). Frost is interrogated vehemently by Daniel Kiefer (Robert Patrick). Matt advises her girlfriend Ana Moreau (Nora Arnezeder) when trouble arises. The lead artists (Reynolds and Washington) were in character and pretty much solid with their performances. Action was fast paced and almost similar to Bourne Ultimatum with the chases and shaky camera. Only reservations this reviewer had were the direction in the storytelling which was almost non-existent until the climax. It made the conclusion somewhat tricky and non-nonchalant. Most fight scenes were dizzying, still looks authentic though. Best lines from Frost - "People betray people" and "People can change." Safe House is an action flick that emphasizes on corrupt government employees and telling the truth.
