With the hype of the New Year and the best films of 2011 along with the much anticipated films of 2012, some films haven’t received as much excitement as perhaps they should of, one of which being Safe House. The film follows Denzel Washington as a highly dangerous renegade from the CIA, who after a decade on the run comes back onto the scene. However, the South African safe house he’s located at is attacked by mercenaries and he only just manages to escape with a rookie operative (Ryan Reynolds). Now, the two must try to stay alive long enough whilst uncovering the identities of those who want them dead.
It doesn’t sound groundbreaking but it does sound like it could make for a good few hours at which to ogle at Washington’s awesomeness and Reynold’s gorgeousness. If you’re still not hooked, check out the rest of the cast! They include Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga, Fares Fares, Robert Patrick, Nora Arnezeder, Liam Cunningham, Joel Kinnaman and Ruben Blades.
Have a look at the poster Universal Pictures have released.
Now who can deny that it’s a pretty cool poster? It’s not got much to it but you have to admit it’s pretty darn suave. I mean, anything with a beard and gun in it and I’m sold. Are you?
Safe House thrills cinemas February 10th.
