Tyler Perry as a action hero!!!! HA!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAHAAHAAA!!!! BWWAHAHAAHHAAAAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! OMG I CAN'T BREATH HAHAHAAAHAAAHAAA!!!!!!! I decided I would see the movie anyway because I love Tyler Perry and I still wanted to support him. I went to the theater fully intending to LAUGH MY *** OFF. To my surprise it ....

Went to see it last night with friends and its a pretty good movie. I'm glad to see Tyler Perry step outside of his usual role of Madea. Hopefully this will not be the last time we see him in this type of role. He was great! Matthew Fox was also great! I would recommend this movie.

I heard the critics tear this movie apart. Fortunately I didn't allow them to influence me or my wife from seeing this. I also read fan reviews that weren't impressed with any part of it. This made me wonder--did we see the same movie?
Many critics stated that Tyler Perry should either give up acting or if he continues to go back to wearing a dress and playing a woman. I believe that just like Robin Williams battled hard to break that "Mork" image, Tyler Perry might have this problem. I have never seen him in any of those movies so I guess that it was easier for me to enjoy his abilities without prejudice from other films.
My wife and I enjoyed this film tremendously. The acting was good, believable and the film in general was well done. If you see this movie --just see it for the action picture that it is. The wobbling effect that one critic mentioned was supposed to be a point of view situation --something like the Blair witch movie, thankfully only one scene is like this.

I have read all of James Patterson's books. And I was really looking forward to this movie. It is based LIGHTLY on the book. Tyler Perry is not a good Alex Cross. He looks uncomfortable in the role. There are scenes where he looks like he is trying hard not to smile. The entire movie was too choppy. If I was not with someone else (who also did not like it), I would have left and asked for my money back.
