This movie was romantic. funny & spontaneous, not including the amazing, beautiful town it took place in. I thought it was alittle slow throughout the middle of movie! However the chemistry between them is thrilling!!

Pretty Darn Good.

This movie brought to the screen beautiful scenery and its a great adaptation of the book. As with the recent movie "Jack Reacher", the adaptation to screen cleaned up the plot and unneeded characters. These actors's have great chemistry together. I thought Duhamel was a bit stiff, but that could have been his yearning for Katie held back by his grief/guilt of a widower characterization. But loved the movie despite this. If you believe in the power Good and Love, then the "plot twist" is easy to accept and touching. Boo to the Critics. Its just a movie. Get over it. Perhaps the audience they advocate for should get a good dose of wholesomeness. Frankly I'm tired of Evil guys battling eviler guys. Enjoy something simple and sweet for a change. Roger Ebert thinks the cop was unrealistic. After this week with the Dorner cop affair maybe Roger should rethink his appraisal. Good triumphs over evil... Love it.

Best Movie so far based on any of Nicholas Sparks' book

Best movie I have seen in a while! I am not into romance movies that much, I took my wife to see this one as her Valentine's Day gift. We visit Southport, NC every two years for our summer vacation with her siblings. We love the quaint town of Southport! If I could live in any place on a sea coast, it would have to be Southport, NC! We saw so many familiar sights during the movie and the story line was exceptional, a dynamic mix of romance and action/adventure. Nicholas Sparks and the producers outdid themselves on this one. My wife had read the book, so she really enjoyed it. That is all that matters to me. Releasing this movie on Valentine's Day was most convenient for me and probably two or three million other husbands, so to whoever does that, a large thank you from me, try and do it again next year! I would rate this movie on a scale of one to ten, ten being the best, a ten plus!

The Man Card Review

By derek802

Safe Haven works on many levels; mainly engaging the audience with the characters and getting you to feel the emotions of the story. There is an inherent sweetness in the script including a selflessness that seems to be a trademark of Sparks’ stories. It does get a little slow in the middle, the foreshadowing is anything but subtle and much of the plot is predictable. Hough and Duhamel are not the next Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks but they are more than workable and give believable performances. Overall it is an enjoyable experience and fits the “date movie” genre like a glove. I can't imagine a wife, dreamy teenage girl or mother not enjoying this movie and likely there will be many facebook post from guys that start with, "I'm not going to lie..." and then end with saying something good about safe haven. Man Card Grade: Not confiscated: but if you cry it will be stamped. (10 stamps is a confiscation)
