A Perfect Getaway is a nice little thriller.
Verified purchase
A Perfect Getaway is a nice little thriller. Nothing new, nothing fantastic but utterly watchable. What makes this better than your average low budget thriller is the amount of character development. There's a lot of it so that we can decipher who are the criminals, but of course there is a twist during the third act when it shifts to typical killer thriller...which is where the thrills are actually conceived. Acting was good, Steve Zahn was mediocre but the hero, the legend and the severely underrated Timothy Olyphant saves the film. The location was picturesque, definitely makes me want to go to Hawaii (minus the murdering of course). I think the film has too much character development and dialogue for the first two acts, then for it to shift to thriller straight away was quite disconnected. The dialogue was also self referential, talking about movie twists etc. and to me was a bit out of place. But like I said, nothing fantastic or great but a rather overlooked watchable film.

Above average
Verified purchase
I think this was an above average little film. Not ground breaking or original, but it was done really well. The plot builds nicely (if a little too slowly) amongst some breathtaking scenery. Although a couple of the scenes were a little over the top, the acting for the most part was spot on, and built a sense of impending doom. Good, not great, but worth a watch where you don't want to think too much.

Thoroughly enjoyable
Verified purchase
Loved this, a bit tongue in cheek at times, nice acting, good story and I liked the action scenes. Knocked a star off for some silly behaviour from the heroine (who is not who you think it is) - never leave your weapon! I saw the twist coming as well, which was a shame. I still really enjoyed it. Nice for a time killer - don't expect Oscars but I've seen a lot worse.

Pretty good thriller
Verified purchase
Many people slate Milla Jovovich off the back of her Resident Evil films, but, if you can look past her kicking zombies' heads in, she proves here that she can turn in a decent performance.

`A Perfect Getaway' is one of those thrillers that is best that you don't know too much about before you watch it. If basically follows a young couple on honeymoon in Hawaii, as they try to work out if they're being stalked by a pair of killers. There's little more to the plot than that, so it's not like the film covers any new ground story-wise. But that doesn't mean it's not worth a watch.

There are enough twists and turns to keep most thriller-fans happy and the fact that the film has employed the talents of a crop of decent actors (and yes, I'm including Milla in that statement) means that this is definitely head and shoulders above most other thrillers out there.

Give it a go.

Rubbish
Verified purchase
Waste of time, the tones were so mismatched - it's meant to be a thriller/horror but it has this weird goofy humour and by the end it's like its trying to be a superhero movie. I don't think the twist worked well either, felt like a different movie, didn't flow well.

Who are the psychopaths?
Verified purchase
The film makes you scratch your head to try to work out who the psychopaths are. A bit of dark humour in places. Good entertainment.

Ridiculous Plot and Unlikeable Characters
Verified purchase
This is such unrealistic rubbish. What type of person on a camping hike catches and kills a deer and then cuts it up around a camp fire! And someone doesn't die because they have a titanium plate in their head! The characters are so unlikeable that you don't really care if they all die.
