If you're thinking about seeing "Safe House" because you like Denzel Washington's work and you think he can't be in a bad movie, don't. If you're going because you love ridiculous car chases, endless gunfights and beatings, with a nonsense plot that exists merely to feed the violence (not that there's anything wrong with that), by all means partake. Denzel's performance keeps the film watchable. Otherwise it's just an action blur. A well-made blur, but still.

Excellent movie, we enjoyed the show it kept us on our toes throughout the whole movie. Lots of action and suspenseful. It was just a great movie.

The movie was shot incredibly close and was almost entirely made up of men shooting guns from beginning to end and there were not even good shots of the actors. They left the safe house almost immediately so the title is misleading. It was so loud I left early and the entire row I was sitting in followed suit. Put me off going to the theatre for a while.

This was a really good movie. Lots of action and suspense. I would not mind going to see it again. I love me some Denzel especially when he plays the bad guy.

Ive read reviews giving this movie an A+, I dont rate it that high, but its still a fantastic movie! The plot is pretty straight forward and you'll figure out who the real villain in is within the first 15-20 min of the movie or so, but that doesnt matter as this movie is all about the non-stop action and the dynamic relationship between or two co-stars! There are amazing fight scenes in this movie that, although not as good, are on par with those from the Bourne series. Denzel once again proves that he is as smooth at weilding a gun as silk on an Italain in an Atlantic City casino! Ryan Reynolds' character is spoon fed along the way while a veteran Tobin Frost (Washington) tries to school the young rookie on the way the world works a la Training Day. The whole cat/mouse game between the two is really where the movie is centered and excels as Reynolds' character learns that the world of the CIA has many subtle shades of gray and is not just black and white.
