Cinematic Releases: Safe House

Stripped directly from the Jason Bourne playbook of action loaded espionage thrillers, we are treated to another Denzel Washington film in which he once again delivers the same performance. Don't get me wrong. Safe House is not necessarily a bad movie. It's just not that good.

The main short comings of the movie are the predictable conspiracy plots, the over emphasis on Bourne style action, and the typical story we've all come to know in these types of film. Also, Ryan Reynolds does not make a believable CIA agent or action star. As a post Christmas season release, it's an entertaining film that's not ever going to test your brain power but might entertain you at an over inflated run time of an hour and fifty five minutes.

See it when it's available as a rental.
