I saw the movie and I had liked it
this is based on a true story but not for children to watch

The story line was similar to another movie starring Julia Roberts, Sleeping With the Enemy. Abusive husband searching for wife who has left him for a good reason.
A bit too long, but another love story by Nicholas Sparks.
Chick Flick, can't see a man enjoying this movie.

Tread lightly. You're in the cliche-ed land of Nicholas Sparks stories now. Star-crossed lovers with terminal illnesses is his bag. I'm sure you know him: MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE, A WALK TO REMEMBER, THE NOTEBOOK, NIGHTS IN RODANTHE, and so on and so forth. This SAFE HAVEN is a mere continuation of that. A young lady appears all of a sudden in a pokey little town, running away from something (details emerge as the story plods on), and happens upon a widower with two young kids who together run the gas station. She is standoffish but is urged by her neighbour to let him into her heart. All the while, she is being chased by an obsessive cop. Why? Well, the answer is no shocking surprise; it actually feels formulaic, as if generated by the Nick Sparks 3000. Plug stereotype A into situation B with conflict C to result in ... wuv. Very reminiscent of far superior Julia Roberts picture SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY, I recommend you watch that instead of SAFE HAVEN.

Wonder why IMDB's ratings are only about 67% as there are all those elements in this amazing movie: Surprise, sentiment, suspense, action, romance, beautiful setting, and paranormal character. No, it's not a blood-boiling, adrenaline pumping, fleshing flying film but the movie is sure a spirit-lifting romance that deserves a thumbs-up recommendation.

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