Critic Reviews for Haven

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (27)

The goal seems to have been to create a multilayered thriller, but the senseless, verbose and convoluted saga never generates simple suspense, let alone tension.

Bloom is the giant void at the center of the film, and his laughable histrionics pull Haven firmly into camp territory.

The presence in the ensemble of Orlando Bloom, who also serves as a producer, could be an initial enticement, but his performance is one of the weakest in a mixed bag.

An ineffective experiment about ugly things happening in a beautiful place.

It's a muddled, disjointed and fairly undramatic film.

Audience Reviews for Haven


Interesting - a little hard to get into, but worth it. A little too abrupt at the end though.

"Can love survive the fall of paradise?"

This really, really surprised me...as I'm not quite fond of Orlando Bloom. However, this film is not just about him...it's about so much more.

It's strange how such a paradise can become...like such a prison.
