Default Alex Cross

My wife and I were going to see Argo but it was down to the front row only so we saw Alex Cross instead.

Great, great movie. Tyler Perry was excellent and Matthew Fox was sen - freaking - sational.

And it wasn't too long, 90 minutes I think. Great pace.

Have you read any of the books? I was debating on seeing this at the theatre or waiting for the dvd, I haven't read any of the books and im not sure how Tyler Perry could do a serious role but I may have to give it a go as I have heard nothing but great things about it.

I disagree. Overly predictable, and the plot was way thinner in some spots than it should have been. Perry just wasn't alive enough in the emotional scenes. I agree about Fox though, both his acting and his character were great. Was it entertaining? Yea, but it's what I call an airplane movie. Watch it on the plane when you can't do better.

Same here not good. Fox was great though. Just imagine how great it would have been if Idris Alba was cast as Cross. Man now that would have been amazing.

Alex Cross - Rotten Tomatoes

Looks like the critics really hated it. Looks like a Redbox movie I can wait on.

I just find it hard to picture Tyler Perry in a serious role...even during the trailers I keep seeing Madea...I guess there isn't enough make-up to make Morgan Freeman look any younger, but even at 75 y/o I think he's hung his Alex Cross role up.

I definitely want to make it to Argo next weekend, but I may try Cloud Atlas first.
