A Perfect Getaway - Movie Review

A Perfect Getaway is a perfectly serviceable thriller that'll get from one summer movie to the next with a few thrills and twists and turns along the way. Plus the scenery's great. Though we were disappointed to learn what we thought might be an extra bonus of a travelogue of Hawaii turned out to actually be a travelogue of Puerto Rico. Still, from what little we know of either location, we were convinced the action was in Hawaii so what does it matter? I liked Timothy Olyphant's character the best though Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich are fine, too. The twist is pretty major and maybe even hinting at it gives it away but the movie chugs along pretty well on its own, leading up to a thrilling, and satisfying finish. How much more could you ask for this late in the summer?
