Safe Haven (2013)

Title: Safe Haven (2013)
Starring: Julianne Hough, Josh Duhamel
Directed by: Lasse Hallstrom

As for someone who read the book, the movie just gave the right amount of justice to it. I praise Josh Duhamel a lot, not because of his very manly aura and hot bod (okay, aside from these two :p), but because he's so into character that he really convinced me as a real father to his kids. Same goes with Julianne Hough who I started to really like. She's so talented it makes my life so unfair. Haha. She's got the bod, the voice, the dancing skills, and could really act well. I also want to address Cobie Smulders' performance. And how I see her acting so stunning. I haven't seen her in films like this (well, The Avengers doesn't count) so this was all new to me. Way to go, Robin Sparkles! :p

Kudos to Mr. Nicholas Sparks for a very different approach on his writing. Well, you could still see his trademark but this one's fresh to the eyes of his readers, I bet.

Safe Haven is not your ordinary drama-romance film. It would catch your breath at some point and gives you chill. I love how they adapted mostly what's in the book. Yes, there were flaws. Nevertheless, you'd still get that intense feeling the movie's supposed to give. 8/10.
