Safe House (2012) Review Aggregator

Submitted by on February 18, 2012 – 5:04 pmNo Comment |

Safe House is a 2012 action thriller film directed by Daniel Espinosa, starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. The film that was released this week in India has opened to mixed reviews in the subcontinent.

Rediff says its a stylish thriller: “For all its action, body count, and blood, Safe House is still a character-driven movie, and though some may think that they have had too many films featuring a black guy and a white man in the lead, there is a lot of vibrant chemistry between Washington and Reynolds. “

Hindustan Times calls it a dark-edged caper: “Veering from cloying to crude, the narrative sometimes strains the viewer’s credibility. The first half of the film is fast and furious. However, the rest of the picture is a let-down, subjecting us to coincidences and violence galore. “

Mid Day thinks of it as a dull film: “Oliver Wood’s cinematography grates on the nerves through the two long hours – practically every other shot is a jerky shaky camera delayed shutter speed blur that has none of the artistry of the Bourne films. Safe House is as dull as ditchwater and has very little entertainment value, let alone a trace of intellect.”
