A Perfect Getaway is one of those early-August films that’s sneaked up on me, but the trailer reaffirms my affinity for Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich. Writer-director David Twohy has had his hand in some quality projects as a screenwriter (The Fugitive, G.I. Jane), and given good genre before with Pitch Black and I believe Below as well (though my memory is a bit fuzzier on that latter one), so this remote-set thriller, seemingly a blend of Turistas and The River Wild, trips a few wires in positive fashion even if it doesn’t really pop off the screen. More than anything it just seems smartly cast. If it’s well made, too, even without being groundbreaking, that’ll be enough to qualify as decent pre-autumnal big screen entertainment, considering some of its competition.
