Faster and A Perfect Getaway

I love to watch movies and I enjoy going to the theater on the weekend. I have a Netflix queue of about 80 movies that I have selected to view by mail and have been working my way through them. This week I got Faster and The Perfect Getaway this week. What a combo! An action/adventure and a thriller this week.


After 10 years in prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has a singular focus– to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he’s finally on his mission…but with two men on his trail– a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) just days from retirement, and a young egocentric hit man (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing and a new found worthy opponent. The hunter is also the hunted. It’s a do or die race to the list’s finish as the mystery surrounding his brother’s murder deepens, and new details emerge along the way hinting that Driver’s list may be incomplete.

This movie has a lot of action. Dwayne Johnson is a man out for revenge on the men who killed his brother. Johnson’s character has a metal plate in his head. I think the trailer makes this movie better then it was. If you like a man on a mission type movies then you will enjoy this movie.

A Perfect Getaway

Honeymooning newlyweds Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cydney (Milla Jovovich) are hiking an 11-mile trail in Hawaii when they cross paths will ex-military man Nick (Timothy Olyphant), who earns their trust by helping them navigate a particularly treacherous mountain cliff. A few yards later, the trio runs into a group of girls whose parents are begging them to return home following reports that a honeymooning couple has been murdered on one of the other islands. The suspects in the killings are a young white couple, and when Cliff and Cydney meet Nick’s frees-spirited girlfriend, Gina (Kiele Sanchez), tensions start to rise. The further the foursome walks together, the more delicate the balance of trust and suspicion becomes. – Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This movie was a first watch for me. This movie looked descent went it can out. I thought this movie was a horror movie but it turned out to be more over a thriller type movie. Weird coincidence both movies have a character with metal plate in there head. Over all I liked the flow of this movie and pretty good story line.


Rating: 9 out of 10 stars.
