Consensus: While smarter than the average slasher film, A Perfect Getaway eventually devolves into a standard, predictable, excessively violent thriller.

Dennis Harvey

A big-reveal thriller with surprises that really do surprise -- and are worth waiting for through an audaciously long buildup.

David Twohy's taut, palm-sweating thriller has two things going for it: it keeps you guessing and it doesn't insult your intelligence.

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.

The aesthetic is closer to a grand finale of Survivor than anything else, and while all the actors do scrappy work, they don't have much psychology to play with -- unlike a fun, class-conscious wilderness tale like The Edge.

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.
