Slow. Predictable. Pace picks up in last 30 minutes or so, and barely saves the film from a one star rating.

Great movie. You'll never guess the strange ending.

Safe Haven Summary: Katie Feldman (Julianne Hough) is a young woman trying to run away from her haunting past. She escapes into a small town down in North Carolina. Katie gets off at a pit stop where she meets a little girl named Lexie and Lexie’s father Alex who owns this pit stop; turns out she becomes more than just a costumer to this family. She finds herself falling in love but eventually her past will come back to haunt her. Review: Lasse Hallstӧm (director of film) has definitely outdone himself with this one. Perfectly timed and beautifully set, watch as the Nicholas Sparks book comes to life. It is such a simple yet intense drama/mystery that will hook you from beginning till end. Like all amazing mysteries, Katie’s past is shown throughout the film as she dreams or tells her story. Your perspective of Katie will change continuously. Hints drop to what actually was happening and you would not be able to understand until you have watched the whole movie. Guessing what was happening, you will definitely want to finish this movie. You will understand and enjoy this film very much. If you love dramas, mystery and family type movies, this is highly recommended. It will give you different types of emotions and I have not exactly read the book, but the film is definitely worth watching even though everyone always says “books are always better”. Even though I did not get to read the book I know for a fact that this movie got everything down. I was never really interested in Nicholas sparks books until I watched this movie, I feel like I need to read his books just to see how amazing it was on pages like it was on screen.

basically just another version of "sleeping with the enemy". didn't seem to be a lot of chemistry between the 2 main characters and i couldnt really see a reason that they would fall in love with each other. oh well.

This is a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks book, now when we think of Nicholas Sparks books we automatically start remembering all of this great romantic theme that the stories usually have, so this is another romantic movie with great storyline, there is mystery, action, family love, and romance throughout the movie. However the ending of the movie is what makes you open up your eyes and say “wow that did not just happen”. It’s about a girl who is forced to flee her town in a lot of secrecy and is being chased by the police for something that she’s done, she gets off in a small town makes changes to herself physically like cutting her hair and dying it a different colour so she’s not recognizable easily. The romance begins when she meets “the guy” from the corner store who is a widow with two great cute children, she falls in love with him, and things seem to be looking great until all of her secrets and nightmares become true and out in the open, which puts her current changed life in jeopardy. The actors have done an amazing job playing the characters and it even fits the image of the books description. Watching this movie could have two possible effects, it either leaving the audience in tears and all into the love bringing the world down, or people will be bored out of their mind until the climax which sort of at the end of the movie. The ending is the greatest twist in a movie ever seen, and that’s according to me, it is a great movie to be watched with kids around or just a romantic night with your significant other. Well worth it.
