Critics Consensus

The plot's gratuitously nonlinear structure only ends up confusing viewers of this island thriller.

Movie Info

With federal agents on his heels, a corrupt Miami businessman tapes a million dollars to his midsection and flees to the exotic Cayman Islands, his unsuspecting daughter Pippa reluctantly in tow. But while her father is desperately laundering his dirty money with a British investment banker, who is skilled in washing ill-gotten gains, Pippa runs off to explore the island and its wild party scene with native Caymanian Fritz. This island bad-boy is a real charmer with a dark side that's liable to get Pippa and her father in serious trouble. He's also an ominous thread connecting a sinister drug lord to Shy and Andrea, two innocent lovers. Their forbidden passion ignites a violent chain reaction across the West Indies paradise and turns the tropical haven into a refuge that's anything but safe.

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (23)

  • 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.

  • A long-shelved, watchable but mediocre Mobius strip of a thriller.

    Sep 22, 2006 | Rating: 2/5
  • Flowers' 'style' suffers from attention deficit disorder, leaving just enough vital information for you to follow the convoluted plot. But just when one story gets rolling, he's off and chasing another.

Audience Reviews for Haven


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

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. Review...TBC.

Absolutely and a very first-rate, stylish, sexy thriller with an all-star cast on the idyllic shores of the Cayman Islands and my best one of three scenes on the same time starring Orlando Bloom as Shy. It's a tradition to Crash.
