I don’t generally think of Denzel Washington as playing dangerous characters because there’s something very reassuring about him. “Comforting” isn’t quite the word that I would use to describe this feeling, though you trust him.
Which is probably why he oftentimes plays against type, such as his roles in “Man On Fire” and “Training Day.”
Looking at the “Safe House” trailer, I think we’ll be seeing more of the dangerous Denzel Washington, as opposed to the tough love Denzel Washington from films like “Remember The Titans” and “Unstoppable.”
It’s also nice to see that Ryan Reynolds is starring in a movie that will more than likely be very successful, since he’s been having a bit of difficulty lately. I think “Safe House” will show that Reynolds is stronger as a supporting player, and highlight that he does not yet have the box-office appeal to carry an action film.
