A big-reveal thriller with surprises that really do surprise -- and are worth waiting for through an audaciously long buildup.
August 20, 2009
Writer-director David Twohy (Pitch Black) serves up mechanical thrills culminating in a bogus twist ending
August 17, 2009
Twohy seems to think the eventual revelation is clever enough to be worth the price of admission by itself. It isn't. To give better value, he should have souped up the cartoonish violence of the final scenes.
August 17, 2009
There's a lot of blood and little logic but the actors scream nicely.
August 9, 2019
The intimacy of A Perfect Getaway can be read as Twohy's response to his adventures in mega-budget moviemaking, as can its smartly self-reflexive references to the craft of storytelling itself.

There's always something to be said for a psycho-thriller that delivers interesting characters in a cool setting.
September 24, 2012
The film is not a total loss due to its interesting use of suspense and its tactic of placing suspicion on every character. While it's not one of the best thrillers out there, you could easily do worse.

Far from a perfect film, but it is a lot of fun. In the tradition of old-fashioned thrillers, the movie has some nice twists and turns in the plot.

A riveting horror-thriller that should do for hiking in Hawaii what Hostel did for backpacking in Slovakia.
April 13, 2010
Twohy's script dares and succeeds in peppering the dialogue with funny insider references to Hollywood scripts and actors.
March 1, 2010
Twohy lets his story's central guessing game play out with patient tautness.
December 17, 2009
A slight film, slight in its surprises and in its suspense, and yet not totally devoid of either.
September 4, 2009
A cunning, sideways-sneaking genre piece with both the fancy to surprise audiences and the adroit filmmaking to do so
August 23, 2009
It works because it's smart, knows it's smart, announces to us that it's smart - then backs off and lets the suspense and dark comedy mix.

[An] effective thriller.

The set up is so good that it pains me to say that the last half hour falls apart. Once things are revealed, it becomes too silly.

I changed my mind about this movie three times.
