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.

Saafe Haven

I loved this movie. As usual Nicholas Sparks doesn't disappoint. Josh and Julianne did an amazing job and I fell in love. But my favorite character was truly the adorable little Lexie. The twist at the end brought me goosebumps. I can't wait to buy Safe Haven when it comes to DVD. My husband even said for a chick flick it was pretty good. So there you have it in a nut shell.

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.

Great Feel-Good Movie

I loved this film. My husband, who enjoyed the book-on-cd, said one of the drawbacks was we weren't shown how psychotic the cop really was. Loved the plot twists and the ending was incredible! I don't know what movie the critics were watching, but I will see this again on DVD.
