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.

It was nice to see Tyler Perry like this. He WAS Alex Cross. It was kinda funny though because at one point when he was using an elevated voice to get a point across Madea started to come through. He caught it though. It wasn't too long and it seems like they left it at a good point for a second installation. Go see it!

My husband and I went to see the movie. We both like Tyler Perry's movies and we both read James Patterson's book so we were looking forward to seeing this movie. I think that the movie is a must see even though it does not follow the book to the letter. I was very pleased with the action, suspense and drama. Please go see it and take someone or a few people with you. As readers of the book and a fan of Tyler Perry, you will find yourselves discussing the movie and book with a sense of enthusiasm. I think Tyler Perry delivered us a modern, sexy and intelligent Alex Cross and I hope Morgan Freeman shares this point of view. He was our first Alex Cross and I think the baton was sucessfully passed on to Tyler Perry.
