Not every film needs to be revolutionary; sometimes films are entertaining but disposable. They can be comfort food. Safe House, from director Daniel Espinosa, touches this category. Safe House tells the story of CIA operative Matt Weston (played by Ryan Reynolds), who is in charge of a safe house in South Africa. After twelve months of doing nothing, he gets his first “house guest,” who happens to be the notorious former CIA agent turned traitor Tobin Frost (played by Denzel Washington). After Frost’s arrival at the safe house, they are immediately hit by an attack by some people in search of an item that Frost has obtained. The attack causes Weston and Frost to go on the run, while trying to figure out who sold them out.
