This one gets mixed reviews from people. I like Timothy Olyphant so I swing to the side of the people who like this movie. Steve Zahn shows some interesting acting. It's a thriller killer chiller in Hawaii. Lots of playing with the audience and misleading clues. I tried not to figure it out and just took the ride. Certainly not special, but I've watched it twice.

I hadn't had much of an interest in checking this movie out, but I'd heard that it had a good twist. With knowing that when I watched it, I just knew I had it figured out, but nope, tricked me out. Worth checking out, not the best movie ever, but I still say see it

A good first half builds some nice tension, but the second half (when we learn who and why things are happening) is so dumb, it cancels out most of the build-up. Granted, with only a few characters they are a little more well-rounded, but it could have been much better.

A Perfect Getaway" by Yojimbo

A pair of honeymooners go on a secluded Hawaiian adventure trail but when they hear of a series of murders nearby they begin to suspect their travelling companions. I like David Twohy. Although his films are never exactly ground breaking, they are always visually pleasing, entertaining and inventive and A Perfect Getaway is another example. Probably his most mainstream effort to date, the serial killer movie with the inevitable twist is a very familiar formula but he manages to create quite an entertaining ride during its 90 minute length. The watchable cast are all fine and it provides enough in the way of twists and turns to maintain the interest but like Shutter Island, the only real drawback is the strength of the twist. There just aren't enough "suspects" making the big revelation a ...
