From the acting to the plot, this movie was terrible. I read the book a day prior to seeing the movie. The book was amazing. Seeing the movie, makes me really wonder what happened. There was no chemistry in the 2 main characters. The directing was horrible. The movie did not stick to the plot of the book. The only thing they took from the book was a couple of names, the location, and the plot. They left out 3/4ths of the movies. And to be honest, if you were in a abusive relationship with a man for around 5 years, would you just go up to a guy and start dating and let down your gaurd in just 3 weeks. In the book it took her around 7 months!! I can honestly say that after reading the book, I was very excited to see the movie. And after seeing the movie, I can truly say that I am very disappointed.

I enjoyed this film. While not as bold as Sparks' "The Notebook," this film has its own center, just as much charm and romance. The cast does an excellent job of distracting you from whatever you were thinking about when walked into the theater. They engage and entertain you with a fair story with a surprise or two thrown into the mix. See it. You won't be disappointed

Safe Haven was probably one of the best movies i have ever seen. Then again, it was a Nicholas Sparks movie, so obviously it was amazing (:

Loved the movie, the scenery, the chemistry between the actors, the story, loved how they ended it which was hard to picture in the book. I live in Wilmington NC so it was a plus to see our beautiful area.

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.
