What comes to mind first is my disappointment in the critics for giving this movie such a low rating. I really don't understand it. I almost didn't go because of their reviews and I'm really just now very conscious that if something seems interesting to me I really just need to go see for myself--particularly if it falls in a genre that is intended to be escapist. The movie had a very good "pace" to it--and that's what I enjoyed most. No wasted time. The action had the right intensity and I was surprised more than once (though this is in no way to suggest the overall plot was "deep" or "unpredictable"). I'm probably one of the few people that didn't go because of Perry or Fox (have never seen them in anything) so maybe that helped that I did not know them in any other context---both were very good in their roles. There is good drama and emotion placed just at the right places. In short, it exceeded expectations. Maybe because the critics had them so low going in.

I think this movie was phenomenal! Tyler Perry was great. There was an interesting plot, action packed from beginning to end, and suspenseful. I was on the edge of my seat the whole movie.

I think TP did a good job in Alex Cross. He challenged himself to do more than the comedy we are used to him being associated with as Madea. He pulled it off. I would love to see him doing more movies as himself. I believe that with his work ethic, he's only gonna get better!

So yeah, I really like Tyler Perry's theater plays and religious movies, I really enjoy them. I really wanted to see him in this type of film to see how he does, but I think I had a hard time since I paid too much attention on his Madea character coming out of him in every scene. I couldn't help but say "ha that's madea", like in the scene where he first confronts mr. Lost guy. I mean it was such a major scene that I barely got excited. I felt it needed way more action, I felt that the villain needed more something, the film itself lacked the edge of your seat feel.
