A Perfect Getaway (2009)

I long resisted watching A Perfect Getaway because I thought it looked like a dumb thriller / slasher movie and I rarely get anything worthwhile from watching one of those.  Turns out I was fairly off-base, as APG was a fairly entertaining and intriguing movie.  Plus, it’s got Timothy Olyphant in it, and as anyone who’s watched “Justified” can attest, that guy is charming as fuck.  And THOR (Chris Hemsworth) is in it too!

All along I was trying to peg the twist, and while I did catch on to a clue or two, the movie dealt with the swerve quite well.  I don’t even want to type anything about the characters because it would be in danger of giving away something.  Steve Zahn, Milla Jovovich, Marley Shelton and Kiele Sanchez all handled themselves quite well, along with the previously mentioned beefcakes Olyphant and Hemsworth.  It’s not Psycho or anything in terms of chills and thrills, but it was surprisingly well done.
