Product Description

From the makers of Crash comes this electrifying thriller with an all-star cast. On the idyllic shores of the Cayman Islands, Shy (Bloom) and Andrea (Saldana) share a secret her parents can never know – they are in love. But a night of passion leads to their discovery and a devastating act of vengeance by Andrea's brother (Mackie). Meanwhile, a shady American businessman (Paxton) has fled with his daughter to the Islands to avoid federal prosecution, only to be drawn into a dangerous web of deceit. As lives intersect and truths are revealed, a chain reaction of violence is set in motion that will determine whether love can survive the fall of paradise.

Fans of Orlando Bloom will get a chance to see the youthful leading man venture into darker territory in this intriguing crime thriller set in the exotic Cayman Islands. Though Bloom is top-billed in Haven (and shares a producing credit), his role--as a lovestruck Briton who falls in love with a local girl (Zoe Saldana), much to her family's consternation--is less of a lead than part of a larger ensemble cast, some of which is involved in another loosely connected storyline about a businessman (Bill Paxton) who has arrived on the islands to escape an FBI investigation. The players (which include Agnes Bruckner as Paxton's daughter, Bobby Cannavale, and Stephen Dillane) handle the neo-noirish material well, and director Frank E. Flowers makes excellent use of the exotic locations, though a connection between the stories could have been more clearly struck beyond thematic implications of the corruption of natural beauty. The DVD offers full-screen and widescreen versions, as well as a making-of featurette. -- Paul Gaita

Nonlinear storytelling has become fairly common for cinema, but HAVEN adds a few more levels. Most notable is the wonderful acting and great script. It isn't excellent or mind-blowing, but entertainment-wise it certainly draws one in.

Orlando Bloom (LORD OF THE RINGS) stars as Shy, a young man given that name when he witnessed his father bludgeoned to death and then didn't speak for years. Now grown into a somewhat respectable young fellow, he lives on a small Caribbean island where he works as a boat cleaner.

Intersecting with his life is that of Andrea (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST), a beautiful native islander who's family is fairly-well moneyed and protects her as if she were a princess. When they discover that Shy and Andrea are secret lovers, they immediately attack Shy, leaving him facially scarred.

Carl Ridley (Bill Paxton, TWISTER) and his daughter Pippa (Agnes Buckner, THE IRIS EFFECT) just celebrated Pippa's 18th birthday. But all is wrong with their world. Carl has some shady business dealings and the treasury department is hot on his heels, thus forcing them to leave their Florida home and flee to the Caribbean.

All of these people's lives are destined to intersect in interesting and often deadly ways. But the beginning of the film is actually the end, and the end just the beginning. We're introduced to this fact about 3/4 of the way through the movie as we start witnessing similar events but seen in more detail or through another character's viewpoint.

The film is really about love and all the terrible things that can result because of this strange emotion. Whether it's young love, the love of a father for his daughter, the love of money, or forbidden love (i.e.

Sometimes it's hard to understand why - or why not - films are released. This one, shot in 2004, I believe, hasn't seen the big screen so far, it was only shown at some festivals. Which is a pity, as it shows an ensemble of fantastic actors in a gripping story. It's worth seeing this one. Bill Paxton as a not quite so legal business man is great, and so is Orlando Bloom, portraying here a shy boy with a soft heart. Zoe Saldana as his sweetheart is good, too. Unlike many movies this one isn't shallow - no marshmallow rosy days, no all dreams come true, but cruelsome sometimes, touching and very moving.

What is wrong with all the people leaving these bad reviews. I'm not a big fan of any of the cast members in the film and was not expecting much after all of the critisizm that I have been hearing about the movie. It was a very pleasant surprise to see that this movie was FANTASTIC!!!!!

It's to bad that it did not make it to the masses. It really deserves a ton of awards. I am a big movie going and love the big special effects and all that jazz, but this movie didn't need any of that. It had me captivated from beginning to end. I stood up on my couch at the end and applauded the ending. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fantastic!!!!!!!!!

O my God!!!!! Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Format: DVD
Not to be confused with the 2001 made-for-TV film of the same title.

Set in the beautiful Cayman Islands, `Haven' uses a narrative style which reminds us of such films as `Amores perros' or 'Traffic.' It has two stories connected to each other very loosely; one is about an American businessman Carl (Bill Paxton) who fled his Miami house because of the FBI's investigation, and has arrived at this sunny island hiding cash under his shirt, with his 18-year-old daughter Pippa (Agnes Bruckner) in tow. This story also involves one corrupt lawyer (Stephen Dillane) and one local small-time hood who pursues Pippa and invites her to the party at night, unbeknownst to her father.

The other is about a local boy Shy (Orlando Bloom), who falls in love with a girl named Andrea (Zoe Saldana), daughter of his employer. One day Shy spends a night with Andrea while her brother and father are away from home, and you know, they are not happy to see this man running away from her room next morning. Her overprotective father's disapproval of their relationship and her hot-tempered brother Hammer's anger results in much more serious consequences that affect the life of both Shy and Andrea.

(So it must be said that Orlando Bloom is not the star of the film; more correctly, he is the star of one story of `Haven.')

Director Frank E. Flowers, who grew up in the Cayman Island, makes good use of the locations - the sea, the beach, the streets and even the dialect. But he seems more interested in showing us the darker side of the islands which are, the film shows, rife with the crimes related to drug and other shady businesses.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 15, 2007
Format: DVD
Frank E. Flowers is a newcomer to the cinema scene and his early outing HAVEN shows both the flaws and strengths of early work. Seemingly under the influence of the current successful trend of movies with multiple stories that are shot in cross sequence to show enigmatic interrelationships (BABEL, TRAFFIC, CRASH, THE HOURS, etc), Flowers attempts to tie together big crime drama with intimate love story and the result, at this stage of filmmaking, is disjointed and aching for a good film editor. There are moments - but they require patience on the part of the viewer to stay with the film to the strange ending.

The big crime idea is placed in the hands of Bill Paxton who with his daughter (Agnes Bruckner of DREAMLAND) takes his 'off shore money' from Miami to Grand Cayman island under the tutelage of smarmy lawyer Stephen Dillane. An island character (Victor Rasuk - a very promising young find from RAISING VICTOR VARGAS, LORDS OF DOGTOWN) begins to put the play on Bruckner, a factor that involves him as an islander in the big crime syndicate from the US. Bump. Next story involves Orlando Bloom as a listless wanderer in love with an island beauty (Zoe Saldana) whose family objects to the liaison. The brother (Anthony Mackie - who continues to find depth in roles in films like BROTHER TO BROTHER, HALF NELSON, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE etc) rages after Bloom, scarring him for life. The interplay within each story is well enough focused but the apparent compare-and-contrast motive of weaving these two disparate yet core-similar stories together is a problem for Flowers.

The cast is a mixed bag, with some superb actors along side some wannabes. And oddly the top actors (such as Bobby Cannavale) are placed in less important roles than some of the lesser experienced ones. The film is pretty to look at, has its moments, and shows promise, but it is not one to place on the 'must see' list. Grady Harp, January 07
