The Perfect Guy (2015) – Personal Movie Review


The Perfect Guy tells a story of a successful and professional woman named Leah who, after breaking up with her boyfriend, Dave, of 2 years, got involved with a man who she thought was the perfect guy and things got terrifying when Carter became violent and psychotic.

It was an awfully waste of time watching this movie as I have seen this kind of plot and twist in movies like Fatal Attraction, Enough, Obsessed, Stepfather, The Boy Next Door, etc. It was a thriller movie but not a single scene thrilled me off my seat. Everything in this movie was just plain cliches and very predictable. The concluding scene lacked grittiness and coercion to compel me to give my support to Leah for seeking justice and revenge or maybe because the ending is too predictable that I didn’t care much of the result.

The only redeeming factor for this movie is the effective acting of Michael Ealy as Carter. He was compelling as a psychopath with a dark and sad past. I do understand that there are people out there who became and acted the way they are because of their past experience and I felt it in Ealy’s character.

Anyway, I will give the movie a dismal 1.5 out of 5 stars for not being creative & imaginative in telling their story and give importance/emphasis to the premise and the twist that could have been helpful to spark interest to the moviegoers.
