Awesome Movie

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.

Washington Post
Swedish director Daniel Espinosa isn't as adept at chase scenes as "Bourne" director Paul Greengrass: We sometimes lose track of who's supposed to be where and which direction the bullets are flying. Full Review

USA Today
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. Full Review
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. Full Review
Justin Chang
In contrast with the fragmented kineticism of Paul Greengrass' "Bourne" movies, there's no existential dimension to the shattered-glass aesthetic here; it's just raw, chaotic action, inelegantly shot and staged but no less unnerving for it. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Though Safe House may be too violent and nihilistic for everyone's taste, it does have several crackerjack action sequences. Full Review
