5.0 out of 5 stars A white-knuckle ride Feb. 12 2012
By R3aLiTY_bYt3s TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We first saw this on Netflix and liked it so much (aside from one gorey part involving a wild critter ("dinner") being carved up/'cleaned') we bought a hard copy on amazon.ca.

If you like thrillers, this is a film for you. In fact, there are so many twists and turns (and some kick-butt action sequences) you will resent the fact you have to "pause" the film for a bathroom break or a ringing phone.

I love the gorgeous scenery, the pace of the film, and the fact that it includes some capable "I CAN take care of myself, thank you!" women, which is such a huge change from the usual Hollywood cookie cutter roles.

I enjoyed the twists and turns (and, let's face it, I enjoyed seeing Timothy Olyphant's firm bare butt in one scene ;-) hee hee), and some of the twists and turns are actually highly unexpected, and one or two will have you wearing your popcorn or your drink.
Oh, my rear lifted off the sofa a few times!! Nearly had a heart attack at one point (if you've seen the film, y'all know what I'm talking about!!)

Keeps you guessing, intelligently written, well acted, gorgeous scenery, Timothy O nekked... what more could you ask for?

Oh, and if Timothy O's nekkedness doesn't do anything for you, there's a hot nekked woman in the film as well. Lol.

4.0 out of 5 stars Killer Honeymoon! March 20 2010
Format:DVD
Newlyweds Cliff(Steve Zahn) & Cydney(Milla Jovovich) are hiking this trail in Hawaii when they meet Nick(played brillanty by Timothy Olyphant) and his girlfriend. Soon after news comes out of a newly married that were savagely murdered.

A Perfect Getaway is a beautifully shot tense thriller with great acting and a few twists along the way. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm just difficult to kill...I guess Oct. 30 2009
By Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"I'm just difficult to kill, I guess..." - as soon as one of the main characters of A Perfect Getaway utters these words, you KNOW someone will try to prove him wrong. And they DO (try ;o) ). The story seems simple at first: a couple is honeymooning in Hawaii, while news spreads thru the Islands of a brutal murder of another newlywed couple. The suspected murderers, a man and a woman, are still at large and likely still in Hawaii. As our city-dwellers hike thru the Park, alone and out of their element, can they trust the strangers with whom they inevitably cross paths? (OF COURSE, NOT!) And that's when an interesting twist takes this story from predictable to... well... no spoilers here! ;o)

I did not have high hopes for this flick...I went to see it mainly because I have a secret crush on Milla Jovovich (if I were a lesbian, Milla and Mariska Hargitay from Law and Order would be my dream dates ;-P...). Was the film perfect? No. Nonetheless, to my utmost surprise, I enjoyed this thriller far more then I did many supposed "blockbusters" this year. It had some laughs, but was also quite unnerving, tense, and creepy with a light sprinkling of gore: everything a good thriller should have on offer. There were signs from the audience that I was not alone in my enjoyment. However, the film did develop its creep factor slowly as the initial 45 minutes were devoted mainly to character development. The story needed time before it graduated from "fluff" to "nail biter". It worked for me. In the end, I felt the super plot twist more then made up for the wait!

Two names are worth mentioning (in addition to Jovovich): it was the first time I saw Steve Zahn competently playing a complex "grown up" character, a role totally different from the usual "doofus" types he seems to favour. Also, Timothy Olyphant surprised me with his performance. His acting skills often leave a lot to desire. Not here. He was PERFECT as the perennially confident and "difficult to kill" owner of a metal plate in his head...

PS: David Twohy, writer/director, also directed Pitch Black. Watch the chase scene at the end of A Perfect Getaway. It is identical in style to one of the chase scenes in Pitch Black...

5.0 out of 5 stars "OutStanding" May 29 2010
By Dayna Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I have watched this movie 4 times now and always catch something I missed the previous time.
When I heard there was a twist I guessed it just by watching the Trailer.
That being said ,it didn't matter it was still a great action film.Nick played by Timothy Olyphant being the stand out with the most interesting character. His famous line "Outstanding" is priceless as is his girlfriend Gina played by Kiele Sanchez's "WooptiTa".Whether they're catching and gutting wild goats for dinner or taking a relaxing nude swim under the waterfall while sharing Nick's wild stories of survival that sound like they could be from an Indiana Jones movie to Nick pretending to leave his drink in a jewelery store so he can go back and buy an engagement ring for Gina,I fell in love with them.
A first rate thriller with a first rate cast,Mila Jovovitch always shines and Steve Zahn is cast against type but pulls it off really well.I think the reason I am able to watch this movie so many times and not get bored or it become mundane, is because I feel as I made a friend in a couple of the characters and want to revisit them and this of course is the only way for me to achieve this.
The battle for survival at the end of the movie is edge of your seat tense and exciting.Even if you guess the twist there are still some surprises they pull out,so just when you think you know how it will end ,you don't.
All in all a winner for start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspense slowly played out. May 6 2011
By Tropigal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Being that I like Tim Olyphant I put this on my list and I'm glad I did! The movie moves slowly to build the suspense of who the murderers are. It introduces several couples that you think might fit the bill then at the end, whoa! It kept me guessing and changing my mind and even after the movie was over I kept going over some scene's! My husband and I really enjoyed this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Impresive movie April 2 2011
By Ty Wilde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Maybe it's because I have VERY low expectations going into this movie, but I was actually pleasantly surprised. The movie is about a couple on a honeymoon to Hawaii when a horrible murder takes place. They plan a hike in a remote part of the island & they run into a few other couples and they all wonder if the other couple is the killers. This movie has an awesome surprising twist at the end and leaves you guessing the whole way through. I'm a fan and would definately recommend this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun Jan. 18 2010
By Grimmy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
At first I was worried about the gore level (not for me, for the rest of the audience) as hinted at by other reviews, but it's really minimal. And this is a fun thrill ride of a film, with a doozy of a twist. I guessed it halfway through, but you might enjoy it more if you don't - and even if you do, the exposition is still interesting. Likeable characters you can root for, a decent script, better acting than you might expect, a twisted plot and great action towards the end make this a movie to enjoy.
