  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 4 -- "David Twohy, the director, allows creepiness to steal into the film slowly, but soon the jungle shadows seem filled with menace."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "The actors give themselves over to this elaborate game of Clue....Olyphant and Shelton seem to have fun with their roles, and it shows in solid performances..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "Even if you know what's coming, it's a neat bit of meta-thriller filmmaking, as much about the mechanics of storytelling as a reasonably satisfying example of it."
    A.V. Club

    "A big-reveal thriller with surprises that really do surprise -- and are well worth waiting for....A PERFECT GETAWAY finds writer-director David Twohy in popcorn form with a muscularity not seen since 2000's PITCH BLACK."

    "To Twohy's credit, he does a decent job of keeping you guessing -- and interested..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "In A PERFECT GETAWAY, the path of true love takes a twisted turn when faced with the threat of psychopathic killers on the loose....Lively and slick..."
    USA Today

    "A B-movie-style throwback that's consistently diverting and blissfully free of morals and messages....It's a genuinely satisfying cheap thrill."
    New York Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] high-grade b-thriller....It's sturdy genre fair..."
    Box Office

    "[T]he sense of impending doom is palpable. As thrillers go, the film is more nerve-wracking than most, and far better acted -- the four principals are terrific, particularly Jovovich, who gives a really nuanced performance."
    Washington Post

    "Steve Zahn makes full use of the many varieties of hyper in his acting arsenal, while Timothy Olyphant has a heckuva good time telegraphing macho mania."
