From Amazon.co.uk

Ace New York Courier reporter Rowena Price (Halle Berry) will do anything to get her story---even if it verges on the unethical. After her plans to out a US senator's homosexual relationship with an intern are thwarted, Price's next chance at a big scoop falls right into her lap. When her friend Grace (Nicky Lynn Aycox) is found murdered, the main suspect is revealed to be Harrison Hill (Bruce Willis), a philandering high-powered ad exec with a very jealous wife.

With some help from her right-hand tech guru, Miles (Giovanni Ribisi), Rowena goes undercover as a temp at Hill's agency, where her own good looks are bound to draw Hill closer to her, taking her to the facts behind Grace's murder. No simple plot description can truly explain James Foley's (At Close Range) twisty, techy thriller. It begins with a false set-up, takes a whole other route, and makes a series of bizarre 11th hour revelations that not even the most seasoned viewer will be able to predict. The always watchable Berry makes us root for a character whose methods aren't always the most scrupulous, and Giovanni Ribisi does a lot with the 'sidekick' role. Anastas Michos's cinematography gives Manhattan a slightly sinister glow of cool blue, appropriate to this tale in which nothing is what it seems, and trusting in someone is sure to cause regret---or worse. Perfect Stranger may occasionally defy logic, but that is not likely to deter those hungering for a handsomely made, star-fuelled studio film with plenty of surprises.

I almost didn't watch this movie due to the bad reviews here on Amazon. I'm so glad I did watch it.

This movie is about an investigative reporter, played by Berry, and high profile advertising executive, played by Willis. The plot is very well paced with no lagging moments and was seamlessly acted by the cast.

This is not the usual, predictable woman in jeopardy type movie. Predictability would have made it a complete yawn fest. Instead, the plot takes off relentlessly and culminates in a twist that will blow your mind. Also, there is more than one secret being kept. I can't say more as it might ruin the experience for future viewers.

Grab yourself a copy of this brilliant thriller.

It is difficult to speak about this film without spoiling any kind of pleasure because the suspense of this thriller is all contained in the several last minute revelations. Let say that The logic of the story is as simple as simple can be. A child who sees a crime will be traumatized for life and will become either a blackmailer or a criminal, according to the degree of involvement in the initial crime. Then the best cover up for your perversions is to become a journalist that will discover and publicize the little secrets of the powerful. And if the powerful you are targeting have no little secrets, then just build some for them and you may even send them to prison in your place, if you are swift enough. In other words there is only mud and manure in this world and those who carry most of it are those who expose others, and at times without any basis at all, just out of spite and jealousy, or fear and vengeance. The film is rather well done though it is not in any way outstanding.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 4 Dec. 2013
Format: DVD
Before watching this film, we figured it was weird that we hadn't seen a psycho-thriller starring Halle Berry and Bruce Willis at the cinema; nor could we even recall the title. Bizarre, given that Giovanni Ribisi is another fave actor, and Gary Dourdan (from CSI) even makes a brief appearance.
Then, for the first half, we couldn't figure out what such a good cast was doing in such a stinker of a film...

The key character, Halle Berry's hotshot reporter came over like a silly hysterical wee girlie, not a hard-bitten Putlizer-prize winning journalist for a top New York daily. It was all just so silly; her shrieking reaction to getting a story spiked (and not having the evidence bagged long before confronting a dodgy senator); her squeaking 'I quit!' flounce out of one of the best jobs in the world, and her hamfisted, clumsy and wince-inducing undercover investigation into a business tycoon who may just have murdered her best friend.
For a while there, we came close to turning it off as Berry's performence was weirdly off-kilter.
And then things started getting interesting again. Her ex-boyfriend became a suspect in the murder. Then maybe it was the wife of the businessman. Then possibly her own researcher who turned out to have several skanky skeletons in his cupboard.
And by the end of the film we were totally engrossed, and thoroughly rewarded by the 90-degree turns that the plot took to reach its surprisingly conclusion.

Willis and Ribisi were excellent throughout. If only the early stages could have been a little less hyped and rather more considered, this could've been a really gripping thriller. Instead, it's an entertaining B-movie, definitely less than the sum of its cast.
7/10

"Perfect Stranger" is awesome for anyone who loves murder mysteries or thrillers. It had some really great twists and for me a totally unexpected ending! Halle Berry is brilliant in it and Bruce willis isn't too bad either. Defo worth a watch!

Good plot well acted, lovely scenery. Halle Berry as always acted well and looked even better. The ending was surprising and perhaps a little far fetched but did not detract from what was a gripping film.

I am one of these people who go out and pretty much buy every Bruce Willis film there is!
When I saw the trailer for this film back in 07, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

There seem to be many reviews about of people slating this film, if you don't like thillers then don't buy it, (I was actually nearly put off by the reviews, but then read the decent ones and got it anyway - because of my love for Bruce) if you do and love a film that makes you think deep all the way through and then gives you an amazing ending, they I suggest you get it!

The film is based around three characters who, throughout, you learn more and more about, finding out thrilling secrets and plots, then to top it off, you get one massive clever twist at the end.

A clever film which entales three actors who do a fantastic job with their characters!

Don't read ANY spoilers, go into this film and enjoy whats to come!
