I Cannot Write a Review for Safe House

I saw most of Safe House today.

I say most because in what I think was the final scene (Ryan Reynolds was sitting in Sam Shepard's office), suddenly the screen went white. The final scene (if it was the final scene) did not conclude. No credits. Just a white screen and then the advertisements that play between showings. 

There were only about eight of us in this screen, but my buddy got up to alert someone from Shelbyville's [Not So] Great Escape 8 Theater regarding what had happened. A representative of Shelbyville's [Not So] Great came in to inform us that they would correct the error and someone would come back in a moment to update us on the situation. 

Two people left, but the rest of us waited for about 10 minutes until another representative of Shelbyville's [Not So] Great came back into our screen. She told us that unfortunately, they would not be able to take us back to the point in the movie where we were when the movie ended. In fact, we would not be seeing the end of the movie at all.

This also meant we would not be watching the credits either.

Now...I did take my so-called "free ticket," but honestly, I was a bit put off. I mean, who knows if I'll ever see the end of Safe House. I'm not going to take my free ticket and sit through the whole movie again just to see the ending. I'm not going to rent the movie in a few months just to see the ending. Who would do that? 

I guess that means that I think Safe House was a bit too tedious to watch again so soon. But overall, did I like it? I don't know--I didn't see the ending. And an ending can make or break a movie, but that was taken from me, and evidently the crew on duty was not competent enough to fix it.

But I know this: I definitely don't recommend Shelbyville [Not So] Great Escape 8.

That's terrible. I thought it was a good movie, but hey, I did get to see the end of it. Feel free to drop me an email and I'll fill you in if you haven't heard from someone else by now.
