"Safe House"

This action/thriller stars Denzel Washington as Tobin Frost, a rogue CIA agent. He gets his hand on a computer chip with damning information that he plans to sell to the highest bidder while in Cape Town. When his deal falls apart and assassins are after him, Frost resorts to the U.S. consulate. They send him to a CIA safe house for interrogation by young agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds). Weston is just biding his time, waiting for a more exciting assignment in Europe.

Then, the assassins attack the safe house and Weston must go on the run with Frost. Frost plays a cat-and-mouse game with the young agent, as the duo fight for survival. The film features exciting car chases, gun battles and action sequences.
