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!

My family and I enjoyed this movie. Wasn't sure what to expect from Tyler Perry in this role, although, I have always enjoyed his past performances. Great movie and a must see.

It was good to see Tyler Perry in a movie that would give him the opportunity to show his diversity. He portrayed Alex unlike Morgan Freeman, but it was believable and enjoyable.
The movie had great action scenes, although somewhat predictable in most action.

As an avid reader of Pattersons's Alex Cross books, I thought this was a very good movie. I did think some of the violence was unnessecary and It lost some of the family story lines which humanize Patterson's books.
But, if they make another one, I would go.
