Plot: Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in the action-thriller Safe House. Washington plays the CIAs most dangerous traitor, who stuns the intelligence community when he surfaces in South Africa. When the safe house, to which hes remanded is attacked by brutal mercenaries, a rookie (Reynolds) is forced to help him escape. As the masterful manipulator toys with his reluctant Protg, the young operative finds his morality tested and idealism shaken. Now, they must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead. Legendary spy Tobin Frost (Washington) has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIAs ever trained, the brilliant ex-intelligence officer has betrayed assets and sold military codes to enemies of the state since he turned. From aiding splinter cells to trading incendiary secrets to the highest bidder, the damage hes done to the U.S. is immeasurable. Now, Frost is back on the grid with the most explosive intel hes ever gotten his hands on.

Safe House Review - Loads of action and thats about itFeb 17, 2012NewsSafe House has nothing new to offer in terms of story or plot and yet watching it is not such a pain.A CIA agent (Denzel) is branded traitor and kept in a safe house, under the watch of another CIA agent played by Ryan. Predictably, Denzel is not a traitor, while the safe house is not all that safe, and both he and Ryan are on the escape route to a place where they would find their rightful dues. The film moves through stadiums and roads and high rises, with snazzy action set pieces. Gun shots galore, blood splattered liberally, and car chases abound making the proceedings on screen fun to watch. Coupled with this, is Washington's gravity as a performer, and Ryan's screen presence that add value to an other wise predictable storyline.If you are looking for some depth in characterization or even sense in the film, Safe House is not for you. Denzel reprises his tried and tested man-on-the-run act. Ryan plays his part without rising above the mediocre script. The action sequences, though enjoyable, are not something one hasn't seen lately-making one wonder what exactly was the director trying to prove in the first place.However, if one is looking for some mindless adrenaline rush and a pass time for the weekend, Safe House doesn't disappoint. Watch it only if you fall into this latter category.Ameet Bhuvan Safe House Review - Loads of action and thats about it Feb 17, 2012
