Safe House (2012)

Director – Daniel Espinosa

Starring – Ryan Reynolds, Denzel Washington, Robert Patrick, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga, Joel Kinnaman, Liam Cunningham, Ruben Blades

What’s it all about? – When a story starts with a young agent in his first post, you just know things are not going to go smoothly.  Reynolds is the ‘housekeeper’ of the safe house where Denzel is placed and questioned.  After the house is attacked they go on the run, where they have one or two trust issues, not only with each other, but with pretty much everyone.

Notes & Scribbles

  • In one scene Tobin Frost shaves off his beard and cuts his hair down to look like Denzel Washington.
  • Reynolds, who I’ve predominantly seen in comedic roles, fared pretty well up against the legend that is Denzel.
  • Some good scenes in the shantytown areas of Cape Town.
