Safe House Reviews

Adam Ross
The Aristocrat

With a small amount of tweaking, Safe House could have been a knockout thriller. Instead, we have a film that shares the same notions as my school report cards: ' ...has potential, just needs to focus'.

Denzel and Reynolds keep the bulk of the film fresh, gritty and intense.

R. L. Shaffer

Safe House is fairly predictable at times, but it also boasts brutally intense, edge-of-your seat action and great star performances from Reynolds and Washington.

2UE That Movie Show

This is Ryan Reynolds best performance that I've seen since Van Wilder and the wonderful, iconic, legendary Denzel Washington getting screen time and playing the 'badass character' that we love to see him play.

Roger Moore
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

The photography and editing are state-of-the-Bourne-art exciting - breathless chases, brutal, blurry fights and unnerving shootouts.

If you're craving a bit of action or just want to clear a few internal blockages in your circulatory system, 'Safe House' will suffice.

Cinema Signals

Wall to wall action and all the betrayals and bullets to play the CIA spy game with an exceptional cast. Just don't let an inventive story get in the way.

Jason Best
Movie Talk

A frenetic action thriller whose chases, gunplay and hand-to-hand combat flash by in such a furious blur that the viewer barely has time to register the plot's shortcomings.

If you like an explosive, action-packed game of high-stakes cat-and-mouse that keeps you guessing until the very end, you'll love skipping along to the slam-bang surprises of Safe House.

Fan The Fire

It's derivative of many thrillers we've seen in recent years, but the strength of its cast and the technical quality of the action do a lot to make us forget those similarities.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

A solid thriller, 'Safe House' isn't extraordinary. But it's a safe bet for those who enjoy 'Bourne'-type espionage movies.

Less of the juggernaut that was Unstoppable, but still a highly digestible Washington affair ...

Washington and Reynolds genuinely click into their characters and provide several shades of grey between them.

Terry Staunton
Radio Times

Espinosa occasionally gets bogged down in the complexities of the plot, but is on more confident footing with a series of white-knuckle chase scenes and shoot-outs.

Safe House hits top gear in the frenetic opening 10 minutes and barely touches the brakes for two hours.

It is loud and entertaining enough to watch, even if it does all feel rather familiar.

The first 60 minutes are tense, exhilarating and exciting with several truly memorable car chases.

Washington is always watchable and no less so here, making Frost an interesting character.

Shadows on the Wall

It's sharply well-made and acted, but nothing about it remotely scratches beneath the surface.
