A double bill of action thrillers starring Denzel Washington.
In 'Safe House' (2012) rookie CIA agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is assigned to manage a South African safe house for renegade former operative Tobin Frost (Washington).
The two men are forced to go on the run, however, when the house is attacked by mercenaries.
Now, these unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to figure out exactly who it is that's trying to kill them. 'American Gangster' (2007) is a biopic of 1970s Harlem drug baron Frank Lucas.
When his boss dies, underworld driver Lucas (Washington) seizes his chance and begins to build his own criminal empire.
Utilising the bodies of dead US soldiers, he begins importing heroin direct from Southeast Asia, increasing purity on the street and undercutting his rivals in one swoop.
Before long he's amassed a fortune, bringing him to the attention of maverick policeman Ritchie Roberts (Russell Crowe), an honest cop in an otherwise corrupt force, who makes it his business to shut Lucas down.
