Movie Reviews

  • 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 ]
  • things drag considerably as the plot mechanics start to heave into motion
    Review rate : D by Josh Bell [Las Vegas Weekly ]
  • the pacing is uneven, the frenetic action is rarely suspenseful, the dialogue is neither witty nor intelligent
    Review rate : D by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • looks and feels like a thousand other similar movies, and does nothing but tread water in the genre
    by MaryAnn Johanson [Flick Filosopher ]
  • grainy and hyper-saturated, Safe House has the distinct look of deliberate "amateur" cinematography
    by Karina Longworth [Village Voice ]
  • dramatically, the film hangs together well enough but the repetitive nature of the action and lack of stylistic shadings and nuance ultimately prove rather grinding
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • 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 [ ]
  • Basically, the movie is a fizzless Bourne episode crossed with Training Day
    Review rate : B- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • a competently-acted but utterly forgettable procedural that's full of exasperatingly idiotic character decisions due to lazy scripting
    Review rate : D+ by Shaun Munro [What Culture ]
  • a "February" script with a "December" cast
    by Joanna Langfield [The Movie Minute ]
