Safe House Trimmed Review

Hello, Internet!  This review of Safe House will be my first "trimmed" review.  Rather than a full, "bearded" review, trimmed reviews will be short and to-the-point.  There are several reasons for me to write a trimmed review; perhaps I didn't quite like the film, don't have many thoughts on it, or just don't have much to say.  Sometimes more isn't always better.

Safe House is a perfectly adequate action/thriller that doesn't really bring much new to the table.  SH looks very much like a Tony Scott film (see: Man on Fire, Unstoppable, Taking of Pelham 123), and pretty much is, despite being directed by Daniel Espinosa.  The dialogue isn't all that terrific, the acting is perfectly fine, and the action is alright.  This film screams "meh."  There isn't anything intrinsically bad about the film; nothing to make me want to hate it.  It just exists.  And maybe that's why it took me over a month to write this...

Safe House is a fairly competent yet forgettable action/thriller.

Bullet out.
