“Safe House” Movie Review

(Outstanding Thriller)

Chau is going to see “Safe House” soon, I will update her rating here…

Ryan Reynolds (as Matt Weston) is a newbie CIA agent in charge of a safe house in Capetown, South Africa.  A very boring job.

Denzel Washington (as CIA legend, and traitor, Tobin Frost) has just picked up information that could bring down the leaders of many intelligence agencies around the world.

Problem is:  There is a mole in the CIA who controls a very nasty group of special operatives.  This mole wants to get that information and will kill anyone to achieve that goal.

Escaping the first attempts, Frost, walks into the U.S. Embassy where he is “protected” (even though he is a traitor).  The CIA moves him to Weston’s safe house and start interrogating him (using waterboarding) to learn what he knows about the information.  Before he yields, the safe house is attacked killing almost everyone.  Luckily,  Reynolds escapes with Washington with everyone searching for them.

“Safe House” is rated R and, truthfully, the action was so intense, I do not recall an f-words (I am sure there were some).  Bloody, but not gory.  Not for kids.  I actually guessed the mole very early on…..Harry, Hermione, and Ron would be disappointed.

Denzel Washington has hit another home run.  He is TERRIFIC, as is Ryan Reynolds.

This a a great “escape from reality movie” worth seeing in the theaters.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched the movie at the Tracy, CA CineMark where our poster is STILL UP!  :-))))

Drive Safe!  Never Forget.
