SAFE HOUSE Movie Review

For the past year, Matt Weston has been frustrated by his inactive, backwater post in Cape Town. A "housekeeper" who aspires to be a full-fledged agent, the loyal company man has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When the first and only occupant he's had proves to be the most dangerous man he's ever met, Weston readies for duty. Tobin Frost has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIA's known, the ex-intelligence officer has given up assets and sold military intel to anyone with cash since he turned. From trading secrets to North Korea to aiding splinter cells, the damage he's done to the U.S. is immeasurable. And he's now back on the reservation with a secret. As soon as Frost is brought in for debriefing, mercenaries come and tear apart Weston's safe house. Barely escaping, the unlikely partners must discover if their attackers have been sent by terrorists or someone on the inside who will kill anyone standing in the way. Now it's up to Weston to figure out who he can trust before they're both eliminated from the game.

The movie started in a Safe House and ended in another Safe House, short but action packed movie. The mixture of action, drama and mystery makes the movie an exciting one to watch. You will look forward to the star rated actors Denzel and Ryan. I have seen Denzel the enemy in some movies but he did very well in Safe House. You would appreciate how Denzel studied his character in the movie, his acting was indeed flawless. Ryan on the other hand is doing well in his career as an action star.  I was actually thinking of some other actors that should have been in his role but while I was watching the movie, I felt he is a good combination to Denzel too. They both genuinely clicked in the movie and I enjoyed watching and unravel the mystery throughout the movie. The action scenes and the script though are simple and safe though there are killing in most parts of the movie and as for me the ending is quite predictable towards the end of the movie. Overall it was a good movie with just enough elements of action for a conspiracy-drama driven movie.
