Safe House: The Bourne Rip-Off

<i>Safe House</I>: The <i>Bourne</i> Rip-Off

The fourth installment in the Bourne series -- which will omit Matt Damon's Jason Bourne in favor of a new super-spy played by Jeremy Renner -- isn't due in theaters until August, but the franchise gets its first unofficial spin-off in the form of the new thriller Safe House, which stars Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds as CIA spooks. No, neither of them is suffering from amnesia or out to avenge the death of Franka Potente, but the film's depiction of the CIA as a hotbed of corruption and treachery as well as the handheld shaky cam aesthetic that director Daniel Espinsoa employs throughout, particularly in the action sequences, is very much in keeping with the Bourne legacy.
