Hemsworth, Connor Cruise star in remake

Former Home and Away star Isabel Lucas will be reunited with her one-time love interest Chris Hemsworth after signing up to play a Wolverine in the remake of 1984 US war film Red Dawn.

The pair dated on and off the Summer Bay set until they broke up in June 2006 and both have since forged solid careers after moving to Hollywood.

The 24-year-old Lucas got her big break in Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen, while Hemsworth’s effort as Captain Kirk’s dad in the latest Star Trek movie was solid enough for him to land the coveted role of the world’s most famous Thunder God in the big screen version of Thor.

I’m hoping to go and see it with a friend this weekend, but her schedule is a bit busy, so I’m not sure if we’ll be able to make it or not.

Star Style: Chris Hemsworth is going to be a god

Chris Hemsworth is virtually unknown in the United States, but his popularity is bound to explode over the next few years.

Hemsworth, 26, was born in Melbourne, Australia. He starred in the Australian soap opera Home and Away as Kim Hyde before landing a role in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek as George Kirk, the father of Captain James T. Kirk (played by Chris Pine).

Although he was only in the movie for about ten minutes, Star Trek proved to be a lucrative career move for the actor.

He stars alongside Mila Jovovich, Steve Zahn, Timothy Olyphant, and Marley Shelton in A Perfect Getaway, opening in theaters today. The film is about a couple on vacation who discover that someone is stalking and murdering tourists.

Hemsworth has also signed on to star in the Joss Whedon-penned thriller Cabin in the Woods and a remake of the 1984 classic Red Dawn.

Hemsworth’s biggest role will come in May of 2011, when he stars in the Kenneth Brannagh-directed movie adaptation of the Marvel comic Thor. Hemsworth will play Thor, the hammer-wielding Norse god of thunder himself. Natalie Portman is starring in the movie as Jane Foster, Thor’s love interest. Also rumored to star are Jessica Biel and Samuel L. Jackson. After Thor, Hemsworth will go on to star in The Avengers alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Edward Norton. Not too shabby for someone whose a newcomer to the Hollywood scene.

Expect to see a lot more of Chris Hemsworth over the next couple of years. It won’t be long before he graces the pages of GQ like his former co-star and movie son, Chris Pine.

See A Perfect Getaway, out in theaters today.

The Cove review of A Perfect Getaway

With a deliberately camp sensibility that nods, winks and repeatedly jabs at the audience, A Perfect Getaway succeeds mainly at being a perfectly terrible but wholly entertaining B-movie experience. Sure, the tension and mysteries unfold like a particularly masterful and violent episode of Scooby Doo, with a five-minute explanation scene to boot, but this tale of a honeymooning couple in peril offers up laughs, scares and jocose scenarios with an engaging construct of audience manipulation and awareness.

Things start with newlyweds Cliff and Cydney (Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich) touring around Hawaii, discovering the sights and experiences. Despite an uncomfortable encounter with white trash couple Kale and Cleo (Chris Hemsworth and Marley Shelton), the pair trek on to take a multi-day journey to a secluded beach the locals rave about.

USA Today review of A Perfect Getaway

Nothing spells honeymoon better than miles of gorgeous remote beaches — and terror, blood and guts.

In A Perfect Getaway, the path of true love takes a twisted turn when faced with the threat of psychopathic killers on the loose.

This is bona-fide B-movie stuff that hinges on red herrings — there’s even a discussion of red snappers vs. red herrings. Even in this exotic setting, Hollywood and screenwriting are topics of conversation. But beware of those who don’t know their movie terminology.

Once the surprise is out, the film grows clumsier and more gruesome, but it definitely has entertaining moments along the way.

A Perfect Getaway: Fun summer escape

A Perfect Getaway might be far from perfect, but it’s good enough to be considered one of this summer’s biggest out-of-left-field surprises. A twisty thriller that will keep most audience members alternately on their toes and on the edge of their seats, this feels like a classic case of a B movie showing its more heavily hyped A-list competition how to get the job done with little fuss or fanfare.

A Perfect Getaway is set in Hawaii, but forget Sarah Marshall: Despite some humor spicing up the picture at regular intervals, this mostly shows how Paradise on Earth can quickly morph into a living hell, as news spreads around the islands about how a newlywed couple was gruesomely murdered by another couple who got away. Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cydney (Milla Jovovich), newlyweds themselves, are determined not to let this disturbing information disrupt their honeymoon, which consists of hoofing it through remote Hawaiian terrain. Largely to steer clear of a menacing couple (Chris Hemsworth and Marley Shelton) giving off that Natural Born Killers vibe, they hook up with another pair (Timothy Olyphant and Kiele Sanchez) whose own peculiarities (outlandish Iraq War tales, a glee in skinning and gutting wild animals) quickly unnerve them. Is it possible that Cliff and Cydney’s new friends are the actual killers?

A key scene about two-thirds through the movie is overplayed and in effect makes it easier to guess the major plot pirouette. Yet even those who pick up on the forthcoming twist should enjoy this picture for its other merits, including the shifting dynamics between the characters, some memorable fight sequences, and the manner in which writer-director David Twohy (whose finer moments include co-scripting The Fugitive and serving as writer-director on Pitch Black) plays with audience expectations. A Perfect Getaway will strike some as being too clever for its own good, but others (like me) will view it as an escape from the late-summer doldrums.

KansasCity.com review of A Perfect Getaway

Back in the days of movie double-bills and snack-bar food that didn’t cost as much as a small car, “A Perfect Getaway” would have been the perfect diversion.

This enjoyable and suspenseful, if ultimately disposable, thriller from writer/director David Twohy (“Pitch Black”) doesn’t do much new and “the twist” is as obvious as a tornado on the Texas Panhandle. But that doesn’t make it any less of an escapist joyride on a hot summer day.

Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cydney (Milla Jovovich) are a wide-eyed young couple honeymooning on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, eager to hike to a beautiful but remote beach. But their contentment is sullied by a run-in with a belligerent hitchhiker Kale (Chris Hemsworth) and his girlfriend, Cleo (Marley Shelton), and news that a couple has been brutally murdered on Oahu. The suspects, a man and a woman, are on the lam and possibly making their way to another island.

While on the hike, they make friends with another twosome – Nick (Timothy Olyphant) and Gina (Kiele Sanchez) – who seem to have an unnatural ease with knives and gutting goats. Meanwhile, Kale and Cleo, who apparently have trouble letting conflict go, seem to be shadowing Cliff and Cydney and their new, weapons-savvy pals up the trail. And, come to think of it, didn’t that guy (Anthony Ruivivar) from the supply store who helped Cliff and Cydney load stuff into their car have a strange gleam in his eye?

Needless to say, the hike takes a turn for the worse.

Twohy keeps things moving at a breathless clip, ratcheting up the tension and the dark, tongue-in-cheek humor so that, even after the big reveal, the movie doesn’t lose momentum as it speeds to its conclusion. Zahn and Jovovich (best known from the “Resident Evil” films) are strong, Hemsworth and Olyphant radiate the right amount of incipient threat, and lush, sun-drenched Hawaii – despite the murder and mayhem being committed on its shores – looks stunning.

“A Perfect Getaway” isn’t the best movie of the summer by a long shot. But it may be this season’s best summer movie.

AZCentral.com review of A Perfect Getaway

Fast and twisty, “A Perfect Getaway” is an economical little thriller that pretty much accomplishes everything it sets out to do.

Granted, it’s not like the movie sets the bar extremely high, but, hey, there’s something to be said for aiming for the middle.

The film focuses on screenwriter Cliff (Steve Zahn, who can liven up any script) and his bride, Cydney (Milla Jovovich, who can’t). The two are honeymooning in Hawaii when news breaks that a man and woman have just killed another newlywed couple.
