"Safe House" is a predictable, late-era Tony Scott wannabe.
This means it's plagued with the same problems that plagued Scott's final films; its editing is choppy, its colors desaturated, and its focus is on style over substance.
A film in a world where Jason Bourne films exist (a series that has twists and turns around every corner) cannot afford to be this safe. (Pun intended) If you haven't figured out how this movie is going to end within two minutes of the opening credits, you're not thinking.
All this is well and good if the movie is entertaining, but "Safe House" is not. It's dull and uninteresting.
