#ISawThat – “Safe House” Movie Review By Lana
My name is Lana Adams. I am a writer, by definition. I am a twenty-something year old, recent graduate of Temple University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and I am interested in helping people. I want to help people in whatever way that I can, whether it’s informing people about pertinent issues, or lending them a helping hand, or helping them to reach their personal goals, the one thing I love to do, is help. I hope to bring clarity to the things that we sometimes overlook; I want to shed light on the stories that aren’t told in hopes that we will begin to pay attention and make a conscious change.
MOVIE REVIEW: SAFE HOUSE
I had the pleasure of attending an advanced screening of Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds new film “Safe House”. Reynolds plays a young CIA agent who is responsible for guarding the Safe House that a dangerous fugitive (Washington) is transported to, but when the Safe House comes under attack, the two find themselves on the run together.
I loved the film. If you are looking for an action-packed film, this is the movie for you. However, if you are looking for an action-packed film AND a new, fresh, storyline, you may want to wait for the DVD of this one. The plot isn’t much different from the Bourne films, or your typical “good guy, gone bad” film. At any rate, I would recommend it to anyone. It’s nonstop action from beginning to end, and just when you think you can stop clenching your fingers together—BOOM, the film draws you back in. After all, it IS Denzel, and he doesn’t NOT disappoint, not in the past and certainly not in this film. It’s the perfect film to see with your friends or with your honey on this pre-Valentine’s Day weekend!
