Let me start by saying that people keep knocking this movie, saying that the book is so much better, well it's not, not everyone reads books, some people actually like to see it on the big screen, and as the author of the book also served as director on the movie, I'm guessing he was pleased with it too. This film is absolutely stunning, the locations, the acting and the amazing twist I never saw coming! Julianna Hough is a rising star who shone throughout this film, and paired with Josh Duhammel, was very clever and worked! Beautiful story and stunning in HD. Dare I say it.... It may even be better than "The Notebook"

I have just seen this film at the Cinema, and is every bit as good as the write up for this film, It captures the heart and makes you feel like you are really there, It is about a young woman who is involved with the wrong man, and is abused by him, she leaves and settles in a small seaside town and eventually falls in love with the store keeper, (who is absolutely gorgeous), Her past tracks her down, and her abusive husband catches up with her but in the end, there is a happy ending, A great chick flick, well worth seeing. Far better than the Notebook and Dear John.

Read some reviews and was not expecting much. Thank you to all those people. Sitting down to it I thought well here goes for another by the books rom drama. How wrong was I, tension from the word go. Mystery as to what was happening, a beautiful girl in danger or is she? A great lead in Josh Duhamel. The film works on all points as you never know until the end which way the film is going and if it will be a happy ending or not. Lovely scenery to boot and a twist that verges just short of cheesy but really does its part.

Story involves a girl running away from a house where a body is laying in the lounge, she jumps on a coach and ends up in a sleepy town, meets a single dad with 2 kids who never really get obnoxious or irritating like in some films. Makes a new life with family and makes a friend who directs her in all the right directions in falling for the lead. The film never really gets too cheesy or slushy and always there is that what really happened earlier to quite late in the film which is only to the movies credit. There are some fight scenes and enough romance for everyone concerned

Being a guy it is difficult for me to say I loved this film, but thats the truth.

HANG ON maybe I should have given it 1 star and then people will really go mad for it like I did.

Katie (Julianne Hough) is on the run from a past she doesn't want to remember and can't forget, armed with a handful of belongings, a bus ticket and a new hair style she vows to try move on.

Katie finds herself in a small town called Southport, North Carolina and after securing a job at the local restaurant and settling in to a small home in the middle of nowhere. Katie is finally starting to move on but despite the intention of not forming any solid relationships, she becomes friends with her single neighbor Jo (Cobie Smulders) and the local store owners young daughter, Kristen (played by the adorable Mimi Kirkland) and his seemingly troubled son, Josh played by Noah Lomax.

Through her new found friendship with Kristen, Katie gets to know her father, Alex (Josh Duhamel). Where from the get-go you can sense that he is fascinated by her and her decision to stick around in a sleepy town. With the encouragement of Jo, Katie lets go of her fears and begins to fall for Alex, just like he has for her. They're happiness isn't long lasting as a threat from Katie's past rears it's ugly head and threatens to sabotage the new life that she's made.

Safe Haven is a great romantic movie, with hints of thriller and suspense that will have you guessing wrong and guessing again as to what's going to happen next. With twists and turns throughout this at first seemingly simple love story about a girl wanting to move on and start a new life and falling in love along becomes so much more.

This film really does deserve more than just 5 stars. Not only is it a thriller, but you get the romance side as well! Katie and Alex play the main leads so very well! The twist at the end was so unexpected. But its a beautiful twist. I have watched the film about a dozen times.

Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven is an enjoyable romantic suspense-drama with a few unexpected twists at the end. In parts I did use the fast forward button to skip over overly long unessential moments -it could have done with a bit of editing I think. Having said that, there were also a lot of good points: some of the shots are really beautiful.

Most of the acting is pretty good. I found the acting by the female lead to be a little cold and unconvincing; a little tv-movie-ish - but it didn't get in the way of enjoying the intriguing story.

Overall, I liked it.

This is a romantic film with a twist, and it is this that really makes it special!

The first character we are introduced to in the film is Katie (played by Julianne Hough). Running, obviously scared, she nervously gets onto a bus. The police soon arrive with a picture of her, asking people if they have seen her. Due to the girl's disguise (hoody, hair dyed) they have no luck, and Katie is on her way! Here the audience are busy asking herself what Katie could have possibly done. Even at this early part of the film, there are flashbacks which indicate what it is so the audience aren't guessing too long, although this doesn't ruin the film.

When she gets to her location she meets Alex (played by Josh Duhamel). Alex is a very likeable character, in no small part due to his excellent relationship with his on-screen daughter Lexie (who is fantastic in her own right). The couple fall in love and all is good in the world (despite Katie's constant nervousness at still being on the run), until Alex finds out what she has done.

The ending of the film is lovely, although the very final scene brings with it a twist (involving Katie's neighbour, Jo). This seems like an after-thought, like it has just been thrown in, and isn't in-keeping with the rest of the film. I really didn't care for it, but it shouldn't put a dampner on what is a very good film. 4/5 - Recommended!
