When was the last time Denzel Washington made a bad movie?
Sure, "The Book of Eli" had its flaws, and "The Manchurian Candidate" couldn't live up to its source material, but few actors churn out as many consistently watchable movies as Washington.
The actor's latest project looks like more of the same, and that's a pretty darn good thing.
In "Safe House," Washington plays a rogue CIA agent teaming up with a newbie (Ryan Reynolds) to smoke out ... well, it's clear there's been some double crossing going on.
The film boasts a capable support team including Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick and Sam Shepard.
The trailer makes it look like "Safe House" is Washington's latest collaboration with director Tony Scott - minus the color saturation gone wild. Think again. The man behind the camera is Daniel Espinosa, a veritable unknown who clearly watched a few Scott films before yelling, "Action!"
