Safe Haven Review

I thoroughly enjoyed Safe Haven. Like the book on which it is based, it was well-written. The cinematography was superb, especially the parts on the beach and water. The climax had me on the edge of my seat, although I already knew how it'd turn out because I'd read the book. The directing was very good, and the actors seemed very sincere. I don't remember seeing Josh Duhammel in any other roles, but I thought this role was good for him because he came across as a loving, protective father. The part where he is in the room above his store, struggling with his grief over the loss of his wife and realizing how much he loves Katie and is about to lose her, is very poignant. I've seen Julianne Hough in some other roles and I thought this was her best one. When the identity of Katie's friend Jo was revealed, it surprised a lot of people. One young man down the row from me shouted, "I'm outta here!" and stalked out of the theater to a chorus of laughter. He should've read the book.

I had no idea that Julianne Hough was such a great actress. There was lots of chemistry here, and the buildup was great. I loved the movie. Will probably watch it again when it comes out on video.

Amazing movie! I was riveted the whole time never wanting it to end! Very emotional and I will get this when it comes out! MUST SEE movie! Amazing acting and Julianne blew me away! Josh as always kept me glued to the screen. I was simply captivated by Colbie...wow! Great casting! You will laugh, cry, and your heart will pound in fear and hope. I had some idea about the plot. but I guarantee that it is an amazing love story that heals and gives hope to those who struggle with this very thing in their lives. Just see it. You won't be disappointed.

We saw this show on a Saturday night and it was excellent. I love the main characters and the story line was fantastic. I have been a fan of Josh Duhmel's since his All My Children days and Julienne, in my opinion, showed that she is a serious actor as well as an incredible dancer. The kids were so cute! I highly recommend this movie for a date night - or any other night! The town it take place in looks like a vacation spot that I would want to check out. The ending will really surprise you!!
