Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds took their thriller Safe House to box office success last weekend. The duo’s flick earned over $39 million leading to a record-setting box office. The film follows Washington’s Tobin Frost, a rogue CIA agent who comes in from the cold after a decade selling U.S. secrets to our enemies. Reynolds’ Matt Weston runs a CIA Safe House in Johannesburg, South Africa that has not seen a single soul in almost 12 months. When Frost arrives at Weston’s “office,” the action thriller kicks into high gear.
The film is a jaw-dropping roller coaster ride and has also provided us with a stellar list of Safe House quotes.
