A great obsession thriller

As a black person i rarely watch black movies because let's face it - most black films are terrible, stereotypical along with bad-acting and rubbish story lines. But 'The Perfect Guy' is definitely not in that category. This film is a decent obsession thriller with good performances, the movie is unpredictable at times, and will have you glued to the screen wanting to know what will happen next.

One can only do so much with a romantic-obsession flick, so the plot is understandably common, but the overall movie is very well-put-together that it's still very watchable.

I'm glad that this didn't turn into a 'Fatal Attraction' style film with the killing of an innocent animal. There is a cat in this film, but thank God no harm came to him and no harm was even attempted.

On Wikipedia it says that the film was mostly shot at night and that they used 'Available Light' when shooting during the day to give the film a 'mysterious' look because the director wanted the film to be dark. (It is a dark film to a certain point, but i can not call this a 100% dark motion picture, if it was actually a dark film i personally wouldn't watch it, i love thrillers, but if the plot or any scenes/circumstance/situation is too dark, i'm staying away from it).

The bad guy in this movie is subtle, but don't be fooled, a bad guy character doesn't always have to be an 'Alex Forrest' style character. We see a lot of interesting things about the personality of this bad guy played very well by Michael Ealy, this character "Carter" is manipulative, sneaky, clever and unforeseeable.

The Perfect Guy - A must-watch thriller.

Not bad, not good, just meh....

This is one of those movies that could have been so much more than what we get on film. The characters had great potential, and there were 3 fairly good performers in the 3 lead roles. And a great supporting cast highlighted to me by Holt McCallany as Detective Hansen. The weakest performer to me was Michael Ealy. He played his character from the beginning as too one note. Even when all the friends and family were seeing him as a good guy in the beginning of their relationship, the way Ealy acted and used his eye movements I never could like him at all. The pacing to me was really bad too. They jumped over so much of the big moments in the first of the movie as if to get to the part of him stalking her. It was like they were rushing to get to what they saw as the good part. But the good part was so predictable. You could almost see everything coming before it happened. I never felt any tension or any feeling of the characters being in danger even though they were. It was a movie with a lot of potential but a big let down.

The Imperfect Guise

The title and story, albeit clich├ęd and predictable - very much so, The Perfect Guy still ends up being an entertaining romance thriller.The movie does a good job at moving at an appropriate pace, cutting out all the unnecessary drama, which helps a whole lot in keeping the thrill alive.

Sanaa Lathan is incredibly gorgeous and exudes a certain level of class, which makes her an absolute joy to watch. Ealy and Chestnut give satisfactory performances and the score also, gets a well deserved thumbs up.

My biggest problems with this film, apart from its platitudes, is 1;

Leah Vaughn complaining about being dated out, then went on to sleep with Carter in a club... A very dodgy looking club at that. It almost didn't quite make sense, however though, when you look at it from the angle of; "The director trying to portray bit by bit, from different scopes, the type of person Leah is "getting in bed with", you sort of see that scenes purpose.

2. The ending. Carter was smart all through the movie, calm and composed, and instead of being defeated by an intelligent counter attack, he was defeated by what felt like, brute force.

Nonetheless, The Perfect Guy was enjoyable. It didn't attempt to be more than what it was. A very solid 6.4/10.
