‘A Perfect Getaway’ Is A Criminally Underrated Piece Of Cinematic Genius
It’s borderline criminal how many people don’t appreciate the film “A Perfect Getaway.”
I actually briefly discussed this topic in my mailbag for this week, but I think we need to take a much bigger dive into the topic.
The plot of the movie, according to IMDB, is, “Two pairs of lovers on a Hawaiian vacation discover that psychopaths are stalking and murdering tourists on the islands.”
I don’t want to spoil the movie for anybody, so I’ll keep the reveals and big surprises to a minimum.
When I judge a movie, there are several things I consider. Does the movie keep me thinking? Do I find it funny? Are there hot women in the film? Is there realistic action in the film? Would I ever watch it again?
“A Perfect Getaway” hits on all these points.
Timothy Olyphant plays a former military special forces operator, and honestly, he should have won an Academy Award.
I’ve had the opportunity to get to know some guys in that line of work throughout the years, and his performance becomes more and more accurate with every special forces guy I get to know.
Olyphant is a super casual guy, who comes off as a surfer bum. At the same time, his character is more than capable of slicing somebody to pieces. It’s an outstanding performance.
There is nobody who saw this movie and expected the ending. Literally nobody, and they’re lying if they said they were. Now go out and see the movie. Olyphant is incredible, the plot is unreal and you’ll want to watch it again the moment it ends.
