Denzel Washington adds a measurable amount of respect to any film in which he plays a role.  Ryan Reynolds is building a strong resume as a dependable actor in comedy or drama.  That is about all the good I can think of to say about "Safe House."  This film gives you more car chases and crashes than a documentary about the Indianapolis Speedway and more gunfire than was seen and heard in "Saving Private Ryan." 
They use to advertise films by saying, "never a dull moment."  This film could have used more dull moments, if only to hold down the body count. Folks were saver at The Alamo 
or on the Titanic, than in this saga of nonstop violence. 

There is really nothing very wrong with this film, but there is also
nothing new -- so, it really did not have to be made.
