Safe Haven – movie review


Grade: C-

The movie starts with Katy running for her life from what? We don’t know. She takes a bus and ends up in a bucolic seaside town. There she manages to get employment and a place to live within 24 hours. Really!

She immediately finds a guy who wants to love and take care of her. Really!

But she has dark secrets that could place him and his kids in harms way but this doesn’t keep her from moving in. Really!

And her dark secret does find her and yes, everyone is put in harms way – which surprises no one. The movie was about 45 minutes too long and only the last 5 minutes gives the audience an eyebrow raising moment that is only slightly more inconceivable than finding a job in a ocean front town.

Since today is Valentines Day I’ll be generous and give it a C-.

RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the blog, and Assistant Facebook Manager for our social media efforts. If you’ve interacted with someone on our Facebook page, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
