Keep Safe

Logan luckily survives his third duty on Iraq with beliefs that a photograph is protecting him. When he comes back to home, he travels to North Carolina to search for the woman on the picture.

Watching the trailer with Nicolas Sparks saying things about his novel, I couldn't resist not to watch this film. I also haven't seen so much romance movie these days so I went to the cinema and watch this film with a friend. Oh well, as expected, with the formula Sparks has been having on his novels like "A Walk to Remember" "Dear John" The Last Song" and "The Notebook" which I still don't get a chance to see, the storyline is simple yet still watchable.

He walks over to pick it up and finds a woman looking back at him, on the back the words “Keep Safe”.

The Lucky One movie review

Call me crazy, but I’m starting to think that Nicholas Sparks needs to either: A)stop turning his books into movies, or B) locate and keep on speed dial the person who was responsible for the screen adaptation of ‘The Notebook’, because frankly, you can only expect audiences to hope for a life changing love story so many times before they stop giving you the benefit of the doubt.

THE GOOD: A grown up and---if I may be perfectly frank---smoking hot Zac Efron plays Logan Thibault, a young Marine who has survived three tours of duty in Iraq, when many around him haven’t been as fortunate. He believes he owes this miracle to the photo of a young woman—Beth (played by Taylor Schilling) that he stumbled across in combat. When his tour is over, he sets out to find her and thank her for sa...
