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 saw it last night. Tyler seemed out of his element as an action character and seemed very awkward carrying a gun. Also, the story line was not very good, the writing could have been better. Even the assassin's character seemed too "one-dimensional."

This is just a so-so movie. In a way predictable but I didn't see the ending coming. It is different then the book, if you read it. Wait for the DVD.

Acting was fine but the story was lacking on multiple levels...I got the feeling important scenes ended up being edited out, there were too many subplots and not enough character depth. Also was a 1.5 hour long commercial for GM. Save your money, wait for it to come to Netflix or Red Box if you want to see it.
