No one is safe in the "Safe House," with Ryan Reynolds as Matt Weston, a young buck CIA agent looking to prove his worth when notorious criminal mastermind Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) is brought into his charge. The two go on the run together, and Weston has to play some mind games to figure out whether Frost or his own CIA bosses are the real bad guys.
A white-knuckle shaky-cam thrill ride in the "Bourne" mold, "Safe House" proves that Reynolds can go head-on with Bond in the intensity department, and Washington is his usual icy, charismatic self.
1. Denzel and Ryan have a little tête-à-tête about who gets to pick the radio station.
