About this movie

Tobin Frost (Oscar-winner Denzel Washington), one of the CIA's most dangerous traitors, resurfaces in South Africa after eluding capture for almost a decade. During his interrogation, the safe house he's being held in is attacked by brutal mercenaries forcing rookie agent, Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) to take the infamous Frost on the run. As the masterful manipulator toys with his reluctant protégé, shaking the young operative's morality and idealism, the unlikely allies must fight to stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead. Packed with intense action and thrilling suspense, Safe House takes you on a deadly ride through a covert world where no one and no place is ever safe.

For some reasons had low expectations, the title 'safe house' is just so blah, however as always Denzel was nothing but! On the contrary the aging actor put his younger counterparts to shame (if he even has counterparts) Ryan renolds was also very good.. In short for the money fabulous action good/great story and excellent acting.. Yours in health Jeff 'lovits'.... Although it should be said ROBERTS review has merit

I like Ryan Reynolds in this and you really can't go wrong with Denzel Washington. The story is good if a bit predictable and at times reminds me of the Bourne films. I would've liked to have seen more of Frost's background through flashbacks. Examples of what made him notorious. Having the CIA explain it is one thing bit seeing would be another. The ending was a bit anticlimactic but it'll do.

Paid for movie. Downloaded movie. Plug HDMI into HD TV and only get a big red X displayed on TV. Could previously rent and watch Google play movies on the same HD TV. Now there has been some sort of update and I will no longer rent movies through Google. Nice job Google.. no wonder your stock price is dropping.
