I needed a “break” last weekend so I watched a couple of movies that did the trick. “A Perfect Getaway” is a cat and mouse thrill ride! I really like Steve Zahn and Timothy Olyphant and this movie did not lack in showcasing their talents!! The perfect setting - Hawaii - the perfect couples, Zhan, Olyphant and their wives played by Milla Jovovich and Kiele Sanchez - and an almost perfect murder. All of these couple get tangled up in a “who’s who” of murder and just when you think you know who the killer is . . .the hand is flipped and you’re back to square one again! The suspense kept me guessing till the very end.
Right along with this I watched “Red.” A high octane, in your face, action movie!! Bruce Willis is a retired C.I.A. Black Ops agent and a person you don’t want to mess with . . .but people are out to kill him along with other retired Black Ops agents played by Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren. They band together to make this movie a roller coaster ride of pure entertainment! For an action movie - it has a sense of humor and fun and just a bit of romance tied in with enough explosions and bullets to last to the very end. The actors make this an outstanding movie and just a fun way to spend a couple of hours.
