Safe House: Busby's Review
King Kong ain't got SHIT on ME!!
Denzel is one of the best actor's of ALL time, there is no denying that. After Training Day, Denzel has done more roles to show how much of a smooth killer he can play. This movie is no exception, Safe House is a story about a rouge CIA agent (Denzel) who escapes from a CIA-operated safe house with the help of the house's house sitter (Ryan Reynolds) after it gets attacked by terrorist. Through out the movie Ryan Reynolds's character play a cat and mouse game with Denzel when he discovers that there is more to Denzel's character that meets the eye, and uncovers a whole mess of shit that he wished he never found out.
The movie was decent for what it was, it was lightweight predicable. I saw the twist coming a mile away, actually i figured it out 10 minutes into the movie. Anyway, if you can get beyond that, the movie is a pretty good action flick, not gonna lie. Denzel and Ryan really do play good off each other, however Denzel really does carry the flick, like he always does in damn near all his movies. Ryan Reynolds did alright for what its worth, but to be honest I think he was miscasted. To be honest I could have seen Leonardo DiCaprio playing that supporting role, but hey that is just me.
All in all, it is what it is, you know what you gonna get coming in. Denzel beating niggas asses, car chases, and explosions. That is pretty much the jist of it, decent flick.
Busby's Review: 3.5 out of 5
