Fast paced, yet, undrstandable great detective movie. The best I have seen in a long time. Tyler Perry's acting as the strong, intuitive detective, was excellent. Even my husbad, who is 70 years of age enjoyed this movie.

You want action? You want suspense? You want characters you care about? Then Go see this movie you get it all. A great role for Tyler Perry to tackle I think he can take the franchise very far!!!! James

Love Tyler Perry

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.

Bad Writing, Bad Acting, Just Plain Bad

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.

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!
