    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

    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
