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.

There's always something to be said for a psycho-thriller that delivers interesting characters in a cool setting.

I just don't think there was enough drama in the first two-thirds of this movie.

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.

A terrific twist, but goes wasted in a movie that really runs out of steam.

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.

Beautiful scenery. And Hawaii looks pretty nice, too. Ba-dum-dum.
