The best thing I can say about Safe House is that it’s managed to get into an elite group of films that leave me completely cold.
Back in 2012 I might have expected Reynolds to pop up in something so vanilla, but seriously, what the hell are people like Washington and Gleeson doing in this?
The action scenes and camera are far too busy. Denzel’s sleepwalking. The twists are signposted a mile away. Safe House takes a non story and spends nearly two hours desperately trying to make something interesting out of it. Don’t bother with it unless you fancy getting to sleep.
