"A Perfect Murder" is a remake of Alfred **** classic "Dial 'M' for Murder" which in turn is an adaptation of a Frederick Knott play. It certainly provides thrills, but what this film lacks that the great Alfred **** never went without, is"A Perfect Murder" is a remake of Alfred **** classic "Dial 'M' for Murder" which in turn is an adaptation of a Frederick Knott play. It certainly provides thrills, but what this film lacks that the great Alfred **** never went without, is great suspense. The film sometimes feels flat with what it's presenting and what little suspense it does have is executed so wearily that the whole thing feels tired and recycled. Aside from that, "A Perfect Murder" does come together as a solid thriller for the most part; it never ceased to keep my attention and most of the character interaction was intriguing. The police inspector role was cut down a lot from the original film this time leaving most of the detective work up to Paltrow's character. The ending left me a little cold, but all-in-all, this is an okay thriller. Expand
