Tobin Frost (Oscar® winner Denzel Washington), one of the CIA’s brilliant officers turned dangerous traitor, stuns the intelligence community when he resurfaces in South Africa. While being interrogated in a safe house, brutal mercenaries attack, forcing rookie 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 two unlikely allies must fight together to uncover who wants them both 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.




  • Another Good Denzel Movie

    By Patejosh
    Once again, Denzel Washington shows why he is one of the best actors out there. Ryan Reynolds also shows he is capable of playing a serious role. This movie is filled with action and a great storyline. Well done.
  • Brilliant

  • Denzel Washington - missing movie

    By Vegas191
    I’m looking for the Denzel Washington movie called “Ricochet”. This is the first Denzel Washington movie I remember. It’s awesome! This movie made him a star! Please add it to your Movie library so I can purchase it. Thank you very much!
  • Extraordinary action flick

    By Feminine Divine
    I have no idea why this movie didn't pack more punch when it opened. It's....listen to me...REEEEEEAAAALLY GOOD. Toward the end it spun into a forced little tidy package (what happened??) but before it started drawing to a conclusion: Unlike anything we'v seen in recent days. Just amazing. I just wish the writer had let the ending stew before deciding on it. This would have been over the 5 star rating with a stronger ending. Oh well. **Still glad I finally watched it.****
  • In A Class Of its Own !!!!!

    By Al Andrew
    Just finished watching Safe House. I simply can not understand why this film received such poor reviews. Excellent cast,excellent story,excellent,stunts,excellent quality !!!!!!!!!! The film has a great feel and awesome style, shot mostly in Cape Town which gave it a fresh and very unfamiliar temperature. The stunts were original and different, gave the film some individual edge ! Washington and Reynolds were superb !! The tension between them was addictive. This was not your normal crappy conspiracy flick….. it was in a class of its own !
  • Meh

    It all hinges on people not being able to shoot the person they are aiming at, unless the story needs it.
  • Packs a punch

    By Rubber2theroad
    I have no idea how this movie could be given 4 stars or less, maybe 3 if one is an over critical jerk. It's an action packed punch film that will keep you on the edge. Good acting, good story and the end just doesn't dissapoint.

    Of all the DW movies this was probably my least favorite. Still liked it but not a good example of what DW is capable of.
  • Very very good movie

    By hgwags
    This easily one of my top 10 favorite movies. It had a good plot, great action, nice ending and very good/handsome actors. It had surprises and explosions. It was everything you could want in an action movie.
  • Wow!! Great Movie. :)

    From start to finish, the movie keeps you engaged, Great acting by Denzel & Ryan. I thought this movie was gonna be slow with just shoot em up bang bang sequences. But, there's a plot, with a couple of twists here and there and its a well-made movie. You won't be disappointed if you like action-thrillers get this movie. By the way, rotten tomatoes couldn't be more rotten with their reviews.
