Ryan Reynolds plays Matt Weston, a CIA operative who has spent a year sitting in a safe house, bouncing a ball against a wall and listening to tunes. He longs for a big assignment in the field, but the organization seems content to keep him out of the way and performing menial tasks. Things change when Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) is brought to his house for some questioning—and some good old-fashioned waterboarding. Frost is a former agent gone rogue who has been selling secrets to enemy countries. He’s also a dangerous, murderous son of a bitch. Throw into the mix that he’s also virtuous, and you have a typically complicated Washington character. Reynolds and Washington complement each other well in this action thriller.
