Safe House Movie Reviews
User reviews on Safe House
Lets get this straight I am the biggest Denzel fan, but I give the movie a f-. You don't really get the plot until the end, so there's nothing but violence and chase scenes until then.
No sustenance. In fact, I fell asleep. Says it all. Still love you Denzel
Good movie for an action flick. Nothing special, but keeps you in there
This could have been a pretty darned good movie. Denzel was great and Ryan Reynolds held his own. The story was pretty intriguing . However...1) It was mostly a two hour chase replete with just about everyone being killed 2) The mostly hand held camera filming is dizzing. When will filmmakers realize this is NOT creative? 3) The scenes change about every 2 seconds which is horrific. Do filmmakers think we are all ADD? 4) At key points in the movie I couldn't understand what the actors were saying.
I was close to walking out after about 20 minutes but stuck with it because of Denzel's performance. Being generous with 2 out of 5 stars.
There was nothing really new in this picture but I still had a pretty good time watching it and if you are looking for a thriller then I suggest you see this film. The movie is very energetic and you will definitely not be bored, I was very engaged throughout the whole film and i enjoyed watching Washington and Reynolds working together on the big screen, they had a good chemistry together. Denzel Washington definitely holds the whole movie together and the director heavily relied on his talent. I think this film is worth the price of a movie ticket and you will be definitely entertained.
