I was very interested to see Tyler Perry play a 'serious' role. I am a huge fan and he did not disappoint!! The movie itself was very well written. I cried, laughed and sat on the edge of my seat at different times during the movie. Matthew Fox did a stellar job, as usual. Great movie!!

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.

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.

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.
