A Perfect Getaway 2009


Writer/director David Twohy pulled together a neat little whodunit with this 2009 sleeper, which ingeniously updated Agatha Christie to the world of backpackers. A couple Cliff and Cydney (Milla Jovovich and Steve Zahn) take a vacation trip to Hawaii, but there’s a killer on the loose; Nick (Timothy Olyphant) fits the profile, but there’s also a couple of hitchhikers (Chris Hemsworth and Marley Shelton) to contend with. Perfect getaway has twists too good to spoil, but it’s also a chance to see performers who rarely get enough of a crack of a whip; Zahn, Olyphant and Jovovich all seize the opportunity to give lively performances in this ingenious thriller.
