In “Safe House”, Denzel Washington plays the improbably named Tobin Frost, described as “the most dangerous man alive”, which is a tad hyperbolic. Then again, the evil CIA could just be factoring in Denzel’s awesome ability to go all “man on fire” on people when the situation calls for it. Here’s your first clip from the action film, due out next month. Ryan Reynolds certainly looks like he has his hands full, but the young buck might just be up to the task. Maybe. Too bad he doesn’t seem to have his trusty magic ring with him…
The film finds the two men teaming up after bad guys with machineguns crash their safe house. Thus, the title. I could be wrong, but I suspect that by film’s end they come to appreciate each other and, heck, might even become friends. Birthday gifts and all-night slumber parties are to follow, no doubt.
Also starring Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga, Fares Fares, Robert Patrick, Nora Arnezeder, Liam Cunningham, Joel Kinnaman, Ruben Blades and directed by Daniel Espinosa.
