Review: Safehouse, (15)
3:46pm Friday 24th February 2012 in Reviews
Agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is caretaker of a CIA safe house in Johannesburg.
Humdrum routine is thrown into disarray by the arrival of agent Daniel Kiefer (Robert Patrick) with a prisoner: rogue operative Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington), who famously sold out the agency to the highest bidder.
The building’s defences are compromised by a gang of gun-toting thugs led by Vargas (Fares Fares).
Matt escapes the hail of bullets with Tobin and a protracted game of cat and mouse begins through the streets of South Africa.
