Safe House: Not So Safe But Very Sorry
Can't get enough of pointless car chases? Hankering to see guys pummeled into bloody blobs? Do you think plot is a superfluous aspect of storytelling?
If you've answered "Yes" to any of these questions, then "Safe House" is a flick for you.
Not for the Movie Slut, who won't be giving away the end, not because she eschews the spoiler role, but because she has no idea how this foolish film ends.
She walked out.
Even the eminently charismatic Denzel Washington and the adorable Ryan Reynolds couldn't save this movie in which C.I.A. does not stand for Central Intelligence Agency, but Corrupt Incompetent Arses.
Washington is or is not a rogue agent and Reynolds is or is not too green to bring him in.
And then there was the bad guy, who did not profit from anything resembling character development, but was given a malevolently massive nose instead.
See for yourself.Scareeeeeeeeeee!
