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.

They changed several things from the book, which always annoys me. However, I just love Josh Duhamel and he is reason alone to see the movie! :) Plus, as an added bonus, Julianne Hough was quite delightful. I have never seen her in anything before and I really liked her.
I can see where people who are not fans wouldn't much care for this movie, but I thought it was worth it since I had invested time in the book and I kept up with the hype on the Safe Haven Facebook page. I'm a sucker for a good romance. :)

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.

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 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!
