Story


Oscar winner 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.

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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..grainy and hyper-saturated, Safe House has the distinct look of deliberate "amateur" cinematography..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
“..together, Washington and Reynolds make a watchable team - and make the occasionally exciting "Safe House" more watchable than it deserves to be..”
by Marshall Fine [Hollywood & Fine]
“..doesn't try too hard to hide that main objective while creating more of a two-handed modern-day spy thriller returning Washington to the role of anti-hero ala "Training Day" and "American Gangster"..”
by Edward Douglas [ComingSoon.net]
