AGENT Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is the caretaker of a CIA safe house in Johannesburg in
Safe House (tomorrow, ITV4, 9pm). Routine is upended by the arrival of grizzled agent with a prisoner: rogue operative Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington), who sold out the agency to the highest bidder.
In the middle of a highly charged interrogation, the building is attacked by a gang of gun-toting thugs led by Vargas (Fares Fares). Matt escapes the hail of bullets with Tobin, bundling the prisoner into the boot of a car, alerting his boss David Barlow (Brendan Gleeson) to the clear and present danger and a tense game of cat and mouse begins through the streets of South Africa.
