This film has some intense moments and some suspense throughout. I thought that the director moved the story along well and the screenwriter did an excellent job making the flow of the film. The bad guy in the film is great as well as Tyson (Cross's mother). If I had to pick on something in the film it would be the overall cast. I think that Mark Walberg or Denzel Washington would have given the main character much more believability. It was different seeing Tyler Perry in this type of role. He did a good job; but not a rememberable one. The police Captain is from the SCRUBS tv show and it was hard to accept him as a gritty and tough policeman. The film is still worth your time and money, even though I think with the right people and more action it could have been a super action packed film.

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.

If it was not for Matthew Fox this movie would be a NO for me. Richard Simmons would have been a better pic for Cross. Save your money at the box office and just rent 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.
