Plot and Synopsis
Washington plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he's remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.
For the past year, Matt Weston has been frustrated by his inactive, backwater post in Cape Town. A "housekeeper" who aspires to be a full-fledged agent, the loyal company man has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When the first and only occupant he's had proves to be the most dangerous man he's ever met, Weston readies for duty.
Tobin Frost has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIA's known, the ex-intelligence officer has given up assets and sold military intel to anyone with cash since he turned. From trading secrets to North Korea to aiding splinter cells, the damage he's done to the U.S. is immeasurable. And he's now back on the reservation with a secret.
As soon as Frost is brought in for debriefing, mercenaries come and tear apart Weston's safe house. Barely escaping, the unlikely partners must discover if their attackers have been sent by terrorists or someone on the inside who will kill anyone standing in the way. Now it's up to Weston to figure out who he can trust before they're both eliminated from the game.

Safe House Trailer Review
It has been a while since we've last seen Denzel Washington do what he does best, superb acting on an action film. After two years, he is finally back with a new espionage film together with a more contemporary actor Ryan Reynolds. This might be another espionage themed film but what will probably make film fans excited is the Denzel-Ryan team up.
Well for the trailer I say it summarizes the entire film in it. Most cases I consider it to be a big taboo but this is an exception to action films. What attracts action film fans are the car chases, fighting sequences, and the conspiracy and the plot of who is behind it all. Seeing both great actors sharing the same screen is already a fans dream come true, but besides that what makes this a promising film is the superb acting and the interesting plot. What will happen to Reynolds character who finally gets what he wished for with so many things added to the mix? What is this secret that Denzel's character know that made him surrender after years of hiding? That is what the general hype that this film is cashing on and it works. This is definitely on my list of the most anticipated film for 2012.
