A Perfect Getaway

‘A Perfect Getaway:' Another Tourist-Horror Piece of Escapism

A quick and dirty, flawed little noir with the glam islander trappings of both Polynesia-bound Survivor and the Hawaii-lensed Lost, A Perfect Getaway resembles its colliding characters: the bourgeois tourists who believe they can swoop in and grab a little bit of paradise, scot-free, and the seedy predators who gravitate toward the same fantasy isles, also drawn by the promise of beauty and freedom. Likewise, despite its low-budg production and genre writing, the aspirational A Perfect Getaway rises slightly above its drive-in roots, thanks to strong performances and an unsettling red herring or two.
