Denzel Washington Is Smooth As Ever In Safe House
Of course, Denzel Washington‘s name alone probably garnered quite a few clicks from his ubiquitous adoring female fans. In the new film Safe House, due out next February, the unmistakable veteran actor plays a compromised secret agent, Tobin Frost, who is one of the most wanted and dangerous men on the planet. He’s also sporting a look – for most of the film, it seems – that might take time to grow on the ladies.
After 10 years on the run, Frost inexplicably turns himself in. Washington’s co-star in this film, Ryan Reynolds, plays Matt Weston – an unseasoned CIA operative who’s been waiting for his chance to become a true agent. His current job is patrolling a CIA safe house, set up to maintain custody of international criminals. Set in Cape Town, South Africa, the central plot of the film is that Frost is brought to the safe house, which is subsequently attacked by unknown assailants who want him dead. It is up to Weston to keep his prisoner safe or so he thinks while both men try to discover who’s after them and why.
Kinda seems a bit like Training Day on an international scale, doesn’t it? Safe House hits theaters February 10.
