A Perfect Getaway From Your Typical Flick

What you don't see often these days is originality. With all the summer blockbusters being released worldwide, A Perfect Getaway is just what the doctor ordered. It has plenty of originality along with a very unique story.

I had pretty high expectations for this film and was really excited after seeing the previews over and over again on television. Yes, there are plenty of movies t... read more

I rented this movie for my girlfriend & I to watch on Valentines Day. We were both wanting to see this movie when it first came out but it definately wasnt one to take her daughter to. So I rented it last weekend. The in all is a really good movie. Definately hd you guessing till the the end who the killers are. A little confusing as far as the story telling.

I actually really liked the material. Otherwise, some scenes were pretty good but some others were rather awkward with some ridiculous dialogs. Furthermore, I don't think Milla Jovovich and Steve Zahn did make such a believable couple, they should have either dropped him or her. Than, there is is very predictable twist which really annoyed and makes you wonder if the whole movie made any sense. Th... read more

“This film was a very good one, it was so original not anything like this has been written, it just has a unique and dynamic feel all the way throguh, I absolutely think it had power and a lot of thriller and soul in it, which this was made great by a fantastic cast and the genders of all the characters was mixed just right to create the perfect batch of characters and actors in this movie, each played to there own strengths during the movie, a great ending and one I didn't see coming.” read more

"Katsottu: 8.7.2012 Ajattelin aluksi, että tässä on pakko olla jokin typerä twisti, koska yleistunnelma oli sellainen. Sanotaanpa vielä, että arvasin sen kaiken lisäksi oikein. Tämä oli sellainen seikka, joka söi avain valtavasti, tätä elokuvaa. Twistin logiikka oli täysin järjenvastainen, jonka vuoksi ihan läpälläni heitin avokille alussa, että - "hei tää leffa muuten salettiin loppuu näin". Lopetus oli mielestäni täysin katsojaa silmään kusevaa ureaa, joka jätti varsin"

Unkindest cut: Movies weakened by directors’ cut (13 movies items)

"David Twohy’s taut, twisty thriller A Perfect Getaway is one of its decade’s most effective thrillers. Landing in theatres around the same time as ostensibly similar tourists-in-peril pictures like The Ruins and Turistas, the film was largely, and regrettably, shrugged off by critics and audiences. For its home-video release, Twohy prepped a slightly longer cut that seemed intended to bait fans of “extreme” cinema, slapping the case prominently with the words “UNRATED DIRECTOR’S CU"

" A smart, self-conscious whodunit that gleefully toys with genre expectations while delivering thrilling twists and turns. "

"Wow, 3 major hot guys in one film! Steve Zahn, Timothy Olyphant and Chris Hemsworth (who I recognised from just his torso). Hehe, I want them all! This is a good film, and I really liked it up until the whole "revelation", which I didn't understand and although it was a good idea, I just think it could've worked better... "

"Far, far better than I was expecting. And quite a bit different as well. I wasn't expecting more than a standard stalk and slash thriller but it turns out to be anything but the sort and really is a tremendously fun adventure thriller with some great performances from Steve Zahn and Timothy Olyphant especially. Very good indeed."

Jimmy Tancredi posted a review 4 years ago

“Good suspense is the one where everything is shown to the viewer and only in the end he will understand how all these pieces fit together. Already fake suspense like this, cheat, and omits important scenes dialogues plant inaccurate and false. So much so that in its outcome, the director David Twohy had to do just a short cut to explain where the killers came from, and only then, showed cut scenes to circumvent the reasoning of the public. It’s called incompetence of foul play or screenplay. It’s a shame because the production is very well crafted, there is sure to achieve success in the surge, and the end can be considered as the propaganda film, electrifying. Still, the script slips again with a strange outcome where certain character totally changes his mind for no apparent reason, ” read more

Than, there is is very predictable twist which really annoyed and makes you wonder if the whole movie made any sense. The funny thing is that, against my expectations, the movie got actually some momentum after this twist and became kind of exciting. All in all, it is actually a rather well made and entertaining thriller and if you don't pay too much attention to the story, you may end up having a good time.” read more
