Excellent Story

Read and liked the book and was even more pleased with the movie. Always prefer a movie that presents a real story. Safe Haven did that extremely well. Well produced, well acted and filmed in an environment that delivered on the small town atmosphere described in the original book.

I saw this movie with my wife and I was very surprised. I was expecting a chick flick type movie, but it had mystery and drama. Superb story. This is an excellent movie with excellent actors. I definitely recommend this movie. God bless!

I dragged my husband to the movie yesterday. And surprisingly, he did not hate it. While this movie is not The Notebook, it was really good. It is a perfect movie to go see with your girl friends.

Safe Haven

By Lindsey_

Safe haven is my favorite film. It's intense but has has a protecting love story that you wish you could keep watching. The acting is one of the things that makes it so great. They chose the perfect roles for the characters. It's age appropriateness is a little limited being sexual and alcoholic. Over all I say must go!

Safe Haven Review

By beachbum23831

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.
