Tyler Perry is Alex Cross Personified

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.

Barely worth a rental

Ok. I loved the original two movies and my wife and I were looking forward to this one coming out. We figured we could get over Tyler Perry being a replacement for Freeman but it just didn't do it. Leave him to producing and directing movies, acting isn't his gig ... sorry. Now for Matthew Fox. We liked him in the TV series Lost but he failed at the part of the villain; he completely overacted the part. He looked the part physically but trying to play a crazed psycho skinhead killer just isn't his part. Overall it was mildly entertaining and I loved the CTS-V Coupe that Fox drove but other than that I'd recommend others to pass this in the movie theaters and only rent if they are desperate for some mild action.

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!

disjointed and predictable

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.
