Cross Review

I sure don't agree with the critics on this one. It was suspenseful and exciting. I think Tyler Perry was very good. I think he showed he a good actor out of his Madeara role. Hope to see more Patterson movies with Tyler Perry as Cross. A lot of people probably didn't go see it because of the critics. Go - before it's too late.

Good Role for Tyler Perry

By FanDeals2011

I really enjoyed Alex Cross - tough for Tyler Perry to fill Morgan Freeman's shoes but he did a great job. Movie was action packed with 1 or 2 surprises/shock effect. I would highly recommend to all who enjoyed Morgan Freeman's role of Alex Cross. Tyler Perry brought something new and refreshing to the role. A good crossover for Tyler Perry out of the Madea and passive husband roles. Hope to see plenty of sequels.

Barely worth a rental

Ok. I loved the original two movies and my wife and I were looking forward to this one coming out. We figured we could get over Tyler Perry being a replacement for Freeman but it just didn't do it. Leave him to producing and directing movies, acting isn't his gig ... sorry. Now for Matthew Fox. We liked him in the TV series Lost but he failed at the part of the villain; he completely overacted the part. He looked the part physically but trying to play a crazed psycho skinhead killer just isn't his part. Overall it was mildly entertaining and I loved the CTS-V Coupe that Fox drove but other than that I'd recommend others to pass this in the movie theaters and only rent if they are desperate for some mild action.

This is when I feel for actors

You have an great set of actors who do an exceptional job with their roles. Matthew Fox is so unnerving and distasteful, that you can't help being abhorred by him (that was the point). But, the book was purely James Patterson (so-so written) and the screenplay was ... AWFUL. The story is so awful that you can't enjoy the action or suspense or creepiness of the actors. I'm sorry that you had to see this if you went. This is why people cringe about "movies these days ..."

Never listen to the critics. They usully don't know what the hell they're talking about. This is a perfect example. This was the best movie that I've seen all year. I loved it. Tyler Perry was excellent. This is a must see movie!!!! I rate it a 9.5 our of 10!! If I would have listened to the critics, I would have missed out on a great movie. Funny thought... In the back of my mind I kept waiting for the character Madea to appear to save the day? P.S. It was great to see all of the scenes from Detroit!!
