Cliff and Cydney are an adventurous young couple celebrating their honeymoon by backpacking to one of the most beautiful, and remote, beaches in Hawaii. Hiking the wild, secluded trails, they believe they have found paradise. But when the pair comes across a group of frightened hikers discussing the horrifying murder of another newlywed couple on the islands, they begin to question whether they should turn back. Unsure whether to stay or flee, Cliff and Cydney decide to join up with two other couples. This is when things begin to go terrifyingly wrong. Far from civilization or rescue, everyone begins to look like a threat and nobody knows whom to trust. Paradise becomes hell on earth as a brutal battle for survival begins.

This was a surprisingly good thriller. The holes in the script are acceptable, the acting is decent and the scenery is absolutely amazing!! Worth watching just for the scenery alone. Worth the watch.

I love love love Steve Zahn and will watch anything he does. Minus him i hadn't had much expectation for this film. Boy was i wrong. I thought it original and well told. Wonderfully acted by all and original. The twists were brilliant too.

Some movies have a bad ending, this one how ever has a very good ending, that and the suprises and twists in the plot is the reason I gave it a high score.

I was surprised that I enjoyed this movie as much as I did. There is quite a bit of comic relief, which means it isn't your typical suspense-thriller. The acting is quite good, the plot takes some unexpected twists and turns. Thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable.

A Perfect Getaway is a movie that was hard for me to review, because the twists are just so shocking, and of that much importance, that I had to work around it. this is easily one of the best thrillers I've seen in a long while, it will mess with your head in a good way. I highly recommend checking this one out.

This movie may not have the usual big stars and big budget but it is much much better than most of the blockbusters out there. Highly recommended.

This is "Touristas" gone to Hawaii except the writing in this movie is what makes the suspense all the better.
There are twists and turns when a couple go on vacation to a Hawaiian Island only to discover another couple is on the loose killing vacationing couples.
The thrilling suspense keeps you glued to the edge of your chair while the story takes you on a scenic thrilling ride through the jungles of Hawaii.
Excellent written dialogue.
