What a waste of money
I took a chance on this movie and I lost out. I hated this movie, and almost left the theater, but decided to stay and see it it would get better over time. It did not. This is the most fake action movie, I've ever seen, and I've see most of them, as I have a 25 year old son, who dragged me to every action movie ever made.
Tyler Perry's hubris is overwhelming. Can't he see there is more to being a believable action hero than carrying a shotgun and running too and fro trying to look tough.
An action hero usually makes you believe the story, makes you believe what is happening and makes the story real. Why didn't he use any of the many talented black actors in Hollywood, i.e.Terence Howard, Michael Ealy or Denzel Washington.
Tyler, take acting lessons or stick with Medea.
I just read, while perusing the reviews, that the great actor Idris Elba was talked about do the movie. What happened? Tyler/Madea never make that mistake again.
