A Perfect Getaway [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

A Perfect Getaway [2009]

With such beautiful locations and actors A Perfect Getaway is a real eye candy.a perfect getaway I will not say much about the story except that a newlywed couple goes to the Hawaii on their honey moon that turns out to be a right nightmare. This is a classical suspense thriller with some awesome performances, especially from Steve Zahn and Timothy Olyphant. And the girls were not too shabby also. The beginning was a bit slow and it took a while for it to build up, but the nature and chicks kept me from falling asleep. Directed and written by David Twohy who worked on many famous films from the nineties: The Fugitive, Terminal Velocity, Waterworld and The Arrival, this is a movie about paranoia and strained relationships.

Although there are some inconsistencies in the script, the plot itself is well constructed and I enjoyed it. The use of graphic violence with some really awesome scenes of mutilation (I can`t see how mutilation is not awesome…), like the one towards the end is really something that I did not expect, granted it is very short but it is still present (thank something). Using wallpaper sets with beautiful nature and half naked hot chicks (although there is no actual nudity) it managed to avoid the usual mistakes of this genre. It reminded me of much dumber movie Fools Gold. So if you are looking for a decent thriller, look no more, enjoy…
