Synopsis: A honeymoon turns dangerous in A Perfect Getaway when the couple finds themselves being stalked by a pair of killers.
Release Date: March 13, 2009 MPAA Rating: PG-13
Genre(s): Horror, Thriller
A Perfect Getaway throws together a bunch of typical characters with the normal stereotypes in order to try and keep you guessing as to who the killers may be. The problem is that it is overly obvious who they want you to believe are the killers that the suspense is all but lost on the viewer. The final “twist” is nothing short of lame, and just plain ridiculous, as it makes no sense given the material prior in the plot. All you really get with A Perfect Getaway is a whole lot of talking, and more talking, and then a climax that falls short of anything spectacular or remotely thrilling.
If anything, A Perfect Getaway provides some of the most beautiful landscapes and surroundings you may ever see on screen. Not that it was very difficult, given the location in Kauai, Hawaii. Nonetheless, it is breathtaking.
If a branch falling out of nowhere is the only moment you flinch in your seat you know a horror film has failed miserably. If you plan on being even the tiniest bit scared, or frightened, or on the edge of your seat with suspense, you will be sorely disappointed during A Perfect Getaway.
