Movies don't come any brawnier than Safe House, and all that chaotic mayhem eventually beats the plot to a pulp. By the fadeout, viewers are equally pummeled by a series of action set pieces punctuated by grim whispers of suspicion.
I enjoyed just about every second of it, this story - inspired by a real event - keeping me captivated no matter how many times the script came perilously close to jumping the shark or falling off the rails.
