  1. A B-movie-style throwback that’s consistently diverting and blissfully free of morals and messages, A Perfect Getaway is just the thing for the summertime movie blahs: it’s a genuinely satisfying cheap thrill.
  2. If you're willing to have your patience tested, Twohy and his cast reward it.
  3. A clever, heart-pounding thriller, and a welcome return to form for the director.
  4. 67
    Even if you know what’s coming, it’s a neat bit of meta-thriller filmmaking, as much about the mechanics of storytelling as a reasonably satisfying example of it.
  5. 63
    For a low-brow, psycho-on-the-loose-in-paradise thriller, A Perfect Getaway is surprisingly entertaining.
  6. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    For a thriller of its kind, it's a lively and slick summer escape.
  7. The result isn't deadly dull, but it does turn what should have been a most dangerous game into a basic scenery-chewing contest.

    Mystifying, A Perfect Getaway is perhaps "a must-see". A couple go on an adventure and discover terrible news about the strangers they meet. I enjoyed watching A Perfect Getaway. This movie was good! It has a twist at the end. Expand

    The first hour of this movie is pretty slow but the second half of this movie is jam packed and very interesting "you have no idea who will live and who will die" kind of movie best I've seen in a while. Expand

    This is not a bad movie, however the big twist wasn't such a surprise. It was actually really good and seemed like something different until the the last 45 minutes or so, then it got a bit more clique. Overall, fairly entertaining and worth the time. Expand

    For such a slow movie, 3/4 of the film really got me into this movie. There was alot of talking going on, but there was that suspence if the main characters were with the killers. This actually worked, but the movie fell apart for me. When they had the twist at the end. Expand

    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.

    Storyline very superficial, artificial. Dont make sense.
    The end? Is a bad joke. The end does not fit with the intermediate dialogues.

    Just a despicable movie.
