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.

Awesome movie, a romantic, suspenseful movie with an awesome surprise at the end.

Love Nicholas Sparks' stories. The last 15 minutes of this movie is well worth putting up with the slow, drawn out parts. Sweet love story of trusting again after spousal abuse. I love North Carolina for the setting - scenery was gorgeous. Lexie (the daughter) was a cutie. Would definitely watch it again.

Typical Nicholas Sparks. Two emotionally wounded people meet, fall in love immediately. Past comes to haunt them, they overcome problems. Sappy story. No logic either. If she left in a hurry where did the money come from for the house, bad as it is??? I used to love Nicholas Sparks... no more!!!

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.

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.
