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.

Faster

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. -Moviefone.com

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.

Rating: 7 out of 10 stars.

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.
