Danzel Saves What Really Is A Mess
It’s an interesting albeit predictable action flick that’s nothing special but delivers enough to make it worthwhile. It does feature what has to be the dumbest CIA operatives/handlers ever put on film. What transpires, especially early, will make most viewers say “why in the world didn’t they just ” but getting past that means enjoying a film where Denzel Washington perfectly menaces and charms his way through every scene. Put just about anyone else in this role and the film would lose a lot. Ryan Reynolds was good enough and the rest of the stellar supporting cast is absolutely wasted. Again, I found it interesting despite it being three repetitive acts of mindless turns highlighting that the government is pure evil and they apparently keeping hiring the same set of mindless goons who race around guns blazing everywhere with little effect or competence whatsoever. Also, the camera work was AWFUL in terms of the overuse of the shaky cam.
Another turd for the American public
One definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results.
Therefore, I must be insane because I keep thinking American-made espionage movies are going to have a consistent, believable plot instead just a bunch of hyped-up, glossy BS.
I have learned my lesson this time.
Safehouse kept me and the rest of the audience laughing incredulously at the sheer absurdity that unfolded again and again in this tremendously silly film. Allow me to diagram the plot for you:
01. A hit squad – hired by the CIA – knows where their rogue agent is and converges on him to kill him.
02. Rogue agent escapes, only to turn himself in to US government.
03. Bumbling CIA team tries to make him talk, only to be ambushed by original CIA team.
04. Rogue CIA agent is saved by silly patriotic CIA agent.
05. Bumbling CIA leaders argue.
06. Silly patriotic CIA agent tries to turn in rogue agent only to be attacked by original CIA team.
07. Rogue agent escapes and is later recaptured by silly agent.
08. Silly agent is attacked by another CIA agent.
09. Silly agent learns CIA is corrupt.
10. Rogue agent dies and silly agent goes rogue.
So, in other words, the CIA attacks the CIA to try to prevent the CIA from learning that the CIA has dirt of the CIA. Yeah, that makes sense!
In addition to all this garbage, the CIA strike team kills a boatload of innocent civilians, does millions of dollars of property damage, gets two of their top people killed, and then just lets the guy with the damaging intel just walk away at the end. So what was the point of the whole movie?
Also, if the CIA knew where rogue agent Denzel Washington was at the beginning of the movie, why didn’t they just kill him up front and be done with it?
The only saving grace this movie has is Denzel Washington who, as always, is a fine actor who conveys depth, empathy, and strong acting. Ryan Reynolds’ acting, however, is pretty awful. Throughout the whole movie, he looks constipated and is entirely unbelievable.
The sub-plot, if you want to call it that, with his girlfriend is completely pointless and adds nothing to the film.
This film had a $85 M budget. That money could have been better used teaching bullfrogs how to play the ukulele.
