Excellent unusual Spy thriller with Patrick Stewart
12 August 2015
Summary: This is an excellent spellbinding spy thriller superbly portrayed by Patrick Stewart. This thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. While it was a Showtime film it is not low budget or low quality. The entire production, cast, script & film quality are all first Class.
Summary: I remember seeing this movie in a video store a few years back and only saw that it had Patrick Stewart on the cover now as a fan of his I did consider renting it but never got the chance. A little time later I found it on TV and now here is my review of Safe House.
Summary: A great collection enjoyed the bone collector with Angelena Jolie If I were picking a favorite from this collection it would be The Bone Collector, Inside Mad with Jodie Foster was also very good
Excerpt: Tobin Frost: "I'm already in your head". Safe House is about a house under the protection of the CIA becomes a target and it is up to the facility's house sitter to extract the criminal in hiding and take him to a secure location.
Summary: A very solid action thriller, Safe House looked a bit Bourne-esque to me, with the plot revolving around CIA, with it being corrupt. its agents betraying each other and some "social stealth action" with main characters evading baddies using crowds.
Summary: The film provides the great acting of Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds' poor talent. Although in some ways the film is entertaining, in other respects doesn' t exceed expectations. Safe House is an inconclusive film.
Excerpt: One of the best films of 2012 so far in my own honest opinion! This is my kind of film you know the one with a kickass trailer and then the movie is twice as good? Safe House is one of those films.
Summary: The spy vs. spy plot is somewhat predictable (you can kind of anticipate most of twists from a mile away,) but the film's brutal action sequences are kinetic and the acting pairing of Reynolds and Washington holds a unique power that makes the movie better than its source material.
