The movie was ok!i had potential in the beginning but towards the end it fell apart for me. Tyler Perry is an good actor but I can't take him seriously!

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.

You have an great set of actors who do an exceptional job with their roles. Matthew Fox is so unnerving and distasteful, that you can't help being abhorred by him (that was the point). But, the book was purely James Patterson (so-so written) and the screenplay was ... AWFUL. The story is so awful that you can't enjoy the action or suspense or creepiness of the actors.
I'm sorry that you had to see this if you went. This is why people cringe about "movies these days ..."

I have read all of James Patterson's books. And I was really looking forward to this movie. It is based LIGHTLY on the book. Tyler Perry is not a good Alex Cross. He looks uncomfortable in the role. There are scenes where he looks like he is trying hard not to smile. The entire movie was too choppy. If I was not with someone else (who also did not like it), I would have left and asked for my money back.

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.
