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.

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.

It was good to see Tyler Perry in a movie that would give him the opportunity to show his diversity. He portrayed Alex unlike Morgan Freeman, but it was believable and enjoyable.
The movie had great action scenes, although somewhat predictable in most action.

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.
