Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in the Safe House trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
About half way through SAFE HOUSE, I paused the trailer and looked up the last story I wrote about the Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds film because I didn’t remember Tony Scott being involved with it. I looked at the story and noticed that it was directed by Daniel Espinosa and thought maybe I made a mistake. That’s how much this film looks like a Tony Scott movie. But sure enough, this is all Espinosa. But looking like a Tony Scott movie is not necessarily a bad thing. SAFE HOUSE actually looks like a decent time and seems like it would fit in nicely with some of Scott’s better films. Again, Tony Scott did not direct this. I have to keep reminding myself of that. And really, you can’t go wrong with Denzel Washington.
Along with Reynolds and Washington, the film stars Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Tim McGraw, Sam Shepard, Robert Patrick, Ruben Blades and Nora Arnezeder. SAFE HOUSE hits theaters everywhere on February 10th, 2012.
