A Perfect Getaway

Watch your back!


I have to say that watching the previews for "A Perfect Getaway" prior to it is release in theaters, I decided it was a movie I wanted to see. However, after the movie came and went from the big screen I thought otherwise. Now that" A Perfect Getaway" is on DVD, I gave it another try and was pleasantly surprised. This is an enjoyable movie for those who appreciate the action and suspense genre. As the previews advertised, three couples on vacation in Hawaii realize that maybe, one couple is not what they seem. 

Mila Jojovich and Steve Zahn both play against their types. Timothy Olyphant ("Hitman"), and Kiele Sanchez ("Lost"), are excellent supporting actors. Although there is some plot inconsistencies  the story moves quickly, and allows the viewer to identify immediately with the main characters. Within the first minutes, we are also introduced to three different couples that all could be the killers. 

A food movie to watch on a Friday night, with your wife or girlfriend and a bowl of popcorn.
