Safe House (2-Feb-2012)

Director: Daniel Espinosa

Writer: David Guggenheim

Music by: Ramin Djawadi

Producer: Scott Stuber

Keywords: Action/Thriller, Espionage

A CIA agent tasked with guarding a white-collar criminal's safe house finds his boring job suddenly turning into a perilous one when the house is attacked by mercenaries.

Ryan Reynolds stars in this action-packed thriller as Matt Weston, a low-level CIA grunt assigned a seemingly-monotonous job as the "housekeeper" of a South African safe house containing Tobin Frost, a criminal who is forced to surrender himself to American authorities after his then-partner in crime was killed by mercenaries. All semblances of a lack of excitement fade for Weston, however, when the same band of mercenaries attack the safe house, forcing him into a position where he must defend both his and Frost's respective lives.
