New Safe House Movie Delivered Tons Of Violence,Intense Drama & More
New Safe House movie delivered tons of violence,intense drama & more. Universal Pictures released their new action/thriller flick “Safe House” into theaters this weekend. I just got done checking it out,and I thought it was just,ok, for me as I found myself,dosing off quite a bit.
The plot just didn’t really hold my attention well. The only thing that kept waking me up was the loud,freaking gun shots that rang off,constantly,throughout the entire film. They were pretty wicked. The movie stars: Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga, Fares Fares, Robert Patrick, Nora Arnezeder, Liam Cunningham, Joel Kinnaman,and Ruben Blades.
In the film, rogue ex-CIA agent Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) flees to a US embassy while under fire after acquiring a seemingly invaluable file. He eventually gets apprehended and placed in a safe house in South Africa, where young CIA-operative Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) acts as its guardian.
Operatives interrogate Frost in order to find out all of his criminal contacts by water-boarding him. Then a group of rebels interrupt the torture and kill everyone inside as Weston and Frost flee outside. Weston snatches up one of the civilian vehicles and orders Frost to get inside its trunk. Frost obeys as the rebels step outside and Weston leads them on a high speed chase around the town.
They eventually make a successful escape,and Weston is ordered by the CIA to retrieve a bag with a GPS inside,detailing the location of another safe house where Weston is supposed to escort Frost to. However, Weston and Fost are eventually broken up when Frost gets police officers to think Weston kidnapped him.
Weston eventually takes out all the cops,and catches back up with Frost,only to get taken out by Frost. However, Weston doesn’t give up,and eventually goes back after Frost,and tracks him down at the slums,where he ends up helping Frost escape from a massive rebel,gunfire, attack. Weston learns from one of the rebels he took out, that the CIA actually ordered the gunfire attack on Frost
From there,Weston takes Frost to the other safe house where another CIA agent was residing at. However, the other agent ends up attacking Weston after a coffee exchange. This leads to a huge twisted conclusion where Weston kills the agent,and other deaths take place with,you guessed it,more very,loud,gun shots. I mean,they were some of the loudest gun shots I’ve ever heard.
Again, I thought the movie was just ok. It actually sounds better on paper than how it actually played out on screen. It seemed sort of slow-moving for me,and I could just never really get into that much. I did like when the action picked up in some parts. It served up some very wicked fight scenes,car chases,and gun shootouts. Overall, I gave it a solid C+ grade. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
