The most dangerous renegade from the CIA, Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington), has been captured after a decade on the run and is taken to a safe house in Cape Town, where rookie  Matt Weston (Ryan Renolds) had been holding the fort in what has, until now, been a quiet, backwater post.

But all that changes when Frost arrives, and soon even the sanctity of the Safe House is compromised as mercenaries attack, forcing Weston to abandon the house and free with Frost, who has given up assets and sold military intel to anyone with cash since he turned.

The movie is a high paced action film set in South Africa and there are a number of lengthy chase sequences through the streets of Cape Town, a soccer stadium and the slums of Langa, which create a great backdrop to this exciting international Hollywood film.
