But I love it. The directing is brilliant and Orlando Bloom is at his very best in acting along with the rest of the cast. It's multi plotted so you get all these different perspectives and when everything ties in nicely at the end you're left really impressed. It's one of those films you can watch over and over to pick up the clues and links.
It's a shame this film didn't get the wide release it deserved because it could've really done wonders for Orlando Bloom's credibility as an flexible actor and also give some much deserved limelight on the rest of the cast, including Frank E. Flowers the director and writer.
The soundtrack is also very good and fits in perfectly. Although there are quite a few different storylines going on at once they are all easy to follow. The beginning may drag on a little bit but when the film is viewed in its entirety you can really appreciate it.
The ending. Well. It's brilliant in my opinion, but it's one that will have most people divided... it's open to interpretation and I also think that every character gets just about what they deserve. This really is a timeworthy film, one of those little gems that never really get discovered.
The film contains a few interwoven strands and tries to be both exciting and involvingly deep, but fails totally on both counts and really all others too. The stories revolve around the drug-soaked underworld of the island. There may well be such a demi-monde there, though my own impression was of a kind of Americanized Caribbean Switzerland, where the roads (well, the one road) are actually patched-up properly, where the main problems are traffic jams and boredom and where the people I met (admittedly, lawyers and secretaries rather than drug traffickers and violent marginalized robbers etc) seemed, if anything, markedly prissy.
In the end the end came, of course. I was glad. No thanks.
Orlando plays a small time fisherman living a peaceful life in the tropics, when he meets a beautiful girl his actions start a turf war amongst the bent businessmen around the carribean islands.
Full of guns, girls gangsters and of course piles of money and drugs, Haven should not pass you buy and is well worth a look. Boys should watch this just for Zoe Saldana, she is seriously stunning!!!
The film was slow to start and stayed slow throughout. This film follows a similar format to the the film crash, The only difference is that when the film comes to an end and the multiple stories are connected you feel it just wasnt worth the wait. The acting was ok and you can't blame them for an uneventful story.
this film tried to be cool and deep, but failed due to the lack of story.

I liked the way the story lines were chopped up so that segments were organised to build up to a climax in the central and sub plot. Read morePublished on 24 April 2007 by tatty oola
