Great actors, average plot.

I love Denzel Washington. However, for fans who love action/thriller movies, this one is very typical and predictable. The writers did a horrble job bringing the main characters close to the audience. I didn't in any way care about these people and their lives. On the other hand, if you are not familiar with such movies than you'll enjoy the mediocre suspense. Not for kids, and not worth buying a ticket to the theaters; just rent it, its a nice pass-time story.

Safe House

I did enjoy the movie although some parts were very predictable. Even though the ending was obvious, I was still hoping for a twist or a better outcome. There are still those of us who are tired of seeing what we perceive as super white man movies. Every time there there are main characters, why is it that the minority one always die or appear to be inferior in some way, but a white guy manages to save the day. I would put this in the same category as Brooklyn's Finest. I do feel that Denzel Washington's performance was superb.

Safe Story

About ten minutes into this movie you start to feel like you've seen it before. That's beause Safe House doesn't just borrow its storyline heavily from "The Bourne Ultimatum" but the frenetic filmmaking style is ripped off from that movie too. Ryan Reynolds dose a good job of basically reprisng his role from "Smokin' Aces" as a CIA fledgling who is supposed protect Denzel Washington, who may be a CIA traitor, but slowly learns that he can't trust anyone. But whose kidding who, this movie is simply about Denzel, and he delivers, though not quite enough to save this uninspiring film.

I really liked the story & the plot right up to the very end. One of Denzels better performances. The ending a bit vaguely familiar to a certain film recently released though ..
