Movie Review: 'Safe Haven' Is Quite Good

Movie Review for new movie "Safe Haven' - never heard of before but hit a home run for me.

Haven't been to flicks in a few weeks and recently had a very slender window of time to go see something. Hadn't heard a buzz on anything recently and wasn't very optimistic about finding anything good. Figured I would just end watching something not very good and taking a good nap.

Visited old friend moviefone.com and the only movie that fit the schedule and had
decent reviews was a film called "Safe Haven". In fact, moviefone.com only had 8
viewer reviews (4.5 stars out of 5 which is very good) and 0 critic reviews which
scared me.

Had absolutely no knowledge of this movie's story nor any of the actors.
For some reason, right when the movie started it was compelling. Clearly there
was the this love story/romantic comedy angle to about 90% of the movie. The 2
stars (Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough) looked familiar but I couldn't place them
in anything. She was a knockout/girl next door to look at and and I'm sure for
many, he was the same.

The other 10% was a darker/thriller part and it was really well woven into the story in the smallest of snippets so you knew it was there.

An ending that totally shocked me. This was a really, really enjoyable and different sort of movie. Compelling and captivating, you were really rooting for this couple to find each other (and happiness) at the same time knowing trouble lurked around the corner.

If you like chick flicks with a slight edge, I would see. I really enjoyed.
