Safe House

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Mace Sowell (Patrick Stewart) used to be one of the top agents for the Department Of Intelligence, but now he has become an old man battling the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. This disease is usually blamed for Sowell’s eccentric behavior patterns, such as his constant paranoia that his past and knowledge will cost him his very life.

DVD Verdict
24 July 2009
  • Excerpt: When I say "bad," of course, I'm talking about the traditional use of the word, the one that's synonymous with "terrible," "awful," and "dreadful." I don't mean, "so good he's bad" or "so bad he's good," or cool bad, as in "They say that cat Shaft is a bad mother." This guy is really bad, and his "why is this even on DVD?" film, worse. The first rule of Make an Action Movie Club should be: know the limits of your budget.

  • Conclusion: Tolerably exciting spycraft, but stuck with a see-through plot. Washington and Reynolds are watchable, but not exactly stretched by these roles.

FILMDUDE

  • Excerpt: You can't help but laugh at the irony of "Safe House". What is supposed to be a temporary detention and interrogation room for captured criminals is a mere launching pad for the first of many intense shoot-outs and car chases. The action doesn't stop, and the film's suspense remains taut throughout thanks to some handy camerawork, a pumping soundtrack and the frenzied senior officials all pointing fingers at one another. Guns, lies, espionage… nobody's safe.

Film Guide
16 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington are together in an action packed spy action thriller. Is it a match made in action movie heaven? Reynolds plays the part as a CIA agent, Matt Weston, stuck in an endless wait for promotion as a safe house operator. After twelve long months of hum drum existence, staring at the walls and waiting for a phone call, everything changes with the introduction of his first guest, Tobin Frost (Washington).

  • Excerpt: Jag skulle vilja säga att storyn i Safe House är enkel. Men den är skitkrånglig. Gröngölingen Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) är ett stycke CIA-agent som mest skrotar Weston runt i Sydafrika med sin franska präktiga flickvän. Weston ansvarar även för ett så kallat safe house dit kreti och pleti som behöver specialskydd eller specialtortyr förs under mycket hysch-hysch och med en svart säck över huvudet.

  • Excerpt: Hollywood is altijd gefascineerd geweest door de CIA, denk aan de Bourne- trilogie, Body of Lies  en natuurlijk Mission: Impossible . Spionnen spreken tot de verbeelding: ze moeten in vreemde landen geheime missies uitvoeren, en zijn niet gebonden aan conventionele wetten. Eén van de laatste in de lange rij films over geheim agenten is Safe House , een film van de nog vrij onbekende regisseur Daniel Espinos a.

  • Summary: Safe House is geslaagd in wat je ervan mag verwachten: één lang shot testosteron. Het verhaal is zeker niet slecht, maar het zijn toch de hoofdrollen die deze film net die halve ster meer geven. Vooral de hoofdrollen ook overigens, want op wat hoge pieten bij de CIA na zijn Reynolds en Washington eigenlijk de enigen die ook daadwerkelijk acteren. De bad guys krijgen daar nauwelijks de kans toe, hun enige taak is achter de blikvangers aan jagen.
  • Pros: Reynolds, Washington
  • Cons: De bad-guys, Clichés

Safe House

23 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Safe House har mye å takke Jason Bourne -filmene for. Noen elementer er forandret, men mye er åpenbart sterkt inspirert av Bourne. Den svenske regissøren Daniel Espinosa har forsøkt å tilføre filmen så høy energi som mulig, og det er vitterlig få dødpunkter mellom actionsekvensene. Denzel Washington og Ryan Reynolds er gode i hver sin hovedrolle. Men historien er nok litt for enkel å gjennomskue, samtidig som den kunne vært filmet med mer finesse.
