Safe House is a 2012 action thriller directed by Daniel Espinosa and starring American actors Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. The film also features Robert Patrick, Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, and Joel Kinnaman in supporting roles. The film was released on February 10, 2012, and received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the performances of Washington and Reynolds but criticized the film's predictable plot.

The movie revolves around a young CIA agent named Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) who works as a "housekeeper" in a covert safe house in Cape Town, South Africa. He is responsible for maintaining the safe house and ensuring that it is always ready to house any rogue agent who may need to be debriefed by the CIA. Weston is a talented agent, but he is restless and eager for more action. His dream is to become a field agent and work on real operations.

One day, Weston's wish is granted when a dangerous CIA operative named Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) is brought to the safe house after being captured by a team of unscrupulous mercenaries. Frost is a former CIA agent who has gone rogue and has been on the run for the past decade, selling classified intelligence to the highest bidder. He is a master of disguise and deception and has left a trail of bodies in his wake. Weston is tasked with keeping Frost under control until he can be transported to a new location, but things quickly spiral out of control.

The safe house is infiltrated by a group of heavily armed mercenaries who are determined to capture Frost and kill anyone who tries to stop them. Weston is forced to go on the run with Frost in tow, leading to a tense game of cat and mouse across the streets of Cape Town. At the same time, Frost begins to manipulate Weston, playing mind games and trying to get under his skin. Weston begins to suspect that there is more to the situation than he has been told, but he has no idea how deep the conspiracy goes.

As Weston and Frost try to stay one step ahead of their pursuers, they are forced to confront their own pasts and the choices they have made in their lives. Weston begins to question his loyalty to the CIA and his commitment to his job, while Frost reveals that he has a personal vendetta against the agency that goes back years. The two men begin to form a bond, and Weston starts to see Frost as more than just a dangerous criminal.

Meanwhile, senior CIA officials back in Washington, D.C., realize that there is a leak in the agency and that Frost might hold the key to uncovering the identity of the traitor. They send a team to extract Frost and take him into custody, but Weston discovers that the team has been compromised and the leak is still active. He and Frost must work together to survive the night and bring the corrupt agents to justice.

Safe House is an intense and action-packed thriller that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats from beginning to end. The dynamic between Washington and Reynolds is electric, and both actors deliver powerful performances that are sure to impress. The film is filled with explosive action scenes, car chases, and shootouts, but it also delves deeply into the characters' psyches and explores themes of loyalty, betrayal, and redemption. Overall, Safe House is a must-see for fans of the action genre and anyone who enjoys a good spy thriller.
