"Safe House" — Is there anyone who doesn't like Denzel Washington?
He lifts every film he's in, no matter how dismal it might be in every respect — but this movie does him justice by giving him a nuanced role as an ex-CIA agent gone (apparently) rogue....
I won't give away the plot by offering any more details.
I rate it (watched this past weekend in hi-def on Apple TV) one of my top three so far this year.
OK, I hear you: "Yo joe — what's the denominator?"
I've seen perhaps 20 movies so far in 2012, give or take five or ten.
Bonus: "Safe House" takes place in Cape Town, and visits a wide spectrum of places therein.
Road trip on the cheap.
