Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cydney (Milla Jovovich) are a couple hiking to a remote Hawaiin beach on their honeymoon.  They join up with another couple after hearing about another honeymoon couple being murdered recently in Haiwii.  Are they with the couple who did the murders or is it the couple that is shadowing them?

A PERFECT MURDER is an entertaining thriller that keeps the supense up and create a nice atmosphere of paranoia.   A nice twist comes about a half hour before the movie ends that makes A PERFECT GETAWAY stand above being just an averagely entertaining thriller.  Milla Jovovich brings a little bit of her personality to Cydney and handles all of the personality quirks of the character.  I just hope this thriller means David Twohy will be ready to do another CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK film soon.    He has crafted a clever little thriller here where paradise is just a little deadly when you least suspect it.
