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.

I really wanted to like this movie. Tyler Perry is a great guy and does a lot for the community, but this movie really stinks. Fortunately for Perry, his wasn't the worst acting in the movie. Matthew Fox was horrible. Of course, he could only act as good as his character was written. I've never seen so many "bad guy" cliches all wrapped up in one character.
From the moment Fox's character makes his first appearance, to the last, his character was nothing more than a caricature. Ham handed and over played would be compliments for his performance. I'd say it was human filth, but I don't want to speak ill about human filth.
Long story short, this is a must not see movie. Save your money and your time. The characters aren't developed, the writing is bad and the actors look like they know it all the way through the movie.

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!

I am a huge fan of Tyler Perry so I may be a little partial when writing this review. I thought it was a good movie. Would it be one you just absolutely have to see at the theater, no. But I am always willing to support Tyler Perry's productions and I have no regrets going to the theater to see it. He played an action roll and I thought it was well put together.
