A PERFECT GETAWAY - NOT SO PERFECT

Roger Ebert said the film left surprises for him and that therefore it is a great thriller. This is why I went to go see this film. What I now know is, Roger is not very sharp. Every turn and most of the dialogue were as predictable as rain in a rainforest. If you do not know who the killers are 15 minutes into the film you are not very smart. The formula is right of "Law and Order." Not an ounce of creativity in the film. The distractions used to move you away from the killers are so obvious that you know they are the killers. There are scenes wherein you should be horrified, but the audience is laughing.

The only redeeming thing about this movie is the scenery. Yes, Hawaii is beautiful.
