    Worse, Safe House asks us to believe that Ryan Reynolds can outclass Denzel Washington in the art of being a hard-ass. Not on this planet, baby. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Safe House is an idea for a movie. It's a few blustery gestures in the direction of a story, with five good actors doing their best, trying to hold up the barest frame of an idea, while investing the surrounding emptiness with all the truth they can muster. show more

    Safe House has two powerful performances at its core, a hectic plot, a huge body count and a mild sense of déjà vu amid the pulse-quickening tension. show more

    John Anderson Wall Street Journal

    Safe House is a sturdy enough thriller, but one that consistently defaults to the less interesting of its two lead characters. show more

    Safe House rockets along, taking a familiar formula and making it work - hard. show more

    Safe House devolves into unexciting action scenes that feel left over from the "Bourne" flicks and are peopled with cloak-and-dagger stereotypes. show more

    Terse and understated, this is a spy vs. spy tale designed to minimize talk and maximize action, not at all a bad thing in movies but over-worked to near-exhaustion here. show more

    It was only a matter of time before someone made a Tony Scott movie without Tony Scott. show more

    Safe House is a twisted claw of a movie, a picture so visually ugly that, to borrow a line from Moms Mabley, it hurt my feelings. show more

    Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    The action is contained within a coherent dramatic structure and the puzzle-box paranoia of spy-agency protocol. show more

    Storyline was okay. Solid performances by both Washington and Reynolds. Near non-stop action and the CGI graphics weren\'t distracting as in so many action flicks. Very entertaining movie.

    I just adore Denzel, great actor, sexy as heck, and a great american. But unless you read the story befor hand you do not know what is going on, I was completely ignorant. Maybe I will see it again.
