I was very excited when I saw the trailers for Alex Cross as I'm a James Patterson fan. I listen to the books on cd or audio books from the library and enjoy them immensely. Tyler Perry did a great job as Alex Cross and I believe plenty of people will be pleasantly surprised. I have no idea what the critics are talking about and why they chose to bash this movie so bad, but I would highly recommend disregarding everything that they have said and pay attention to word of mouth and fan reviews instead! It had a good plot, great action, good acting and was funny and sad at times. The cast was great--most notably, Matthew Fox, Edward Burns, and Cicely Tyson. It had a nice twist at the end that I didn't see coming either. Matthew Fox brought to mind for me many of the crazy killers in Alex Cross novels. He was a total bad*ss in this movie. Great ending too! I loved it!

YES! Tyler Perry is KNOWN for being Madea... YES! There were times in the film that I was reminded of Madea. And YES! It's hard to separate the two at first. BUT - He worked his behind off at that character, so much respect. And, once you get past the initial skepticism you have about him playing this type of role, you'll be able to see the movie for the great acting, emotion, character, and writing it really has to offer. Just go in open-minded and give him a shot and you won't be disappointed. I WASN'T! And I know he's only going to keep getting better. "MUCH RESPECT!"

My husband and I enjoyed the movie alot. I thought Tyler did a wonderful job playing a character as an educated detective something a little different than Madea. I think Tyler will be the upcoming Denzel Washington. Tyler Perry has proven he is capable of being more than just Madea although Madea is loved by many, I think Tyler's fans will embrace his mor serious roles. God Bless you Tyler.......

The acting is excellent, casting is great, lots of action, plot was shallow, but for James Patterson's Alex Cross book fans it is a well worthwhile bit of excitement. While it departs greatly from the books, it is every bit as exciting as any of the novels, and fills the adult need for an occasional action film on a cold rainy afternoon.
