Great Film - ignore the supposed know it all IMDb wannabe critics. (by ronatobe)
Having seen the ratings for this film prompted me to write my views. This is not a review. Do I claim to be a film critic. Hell no, I do not. Was it a blockbusting movie? Lets be honest, no it wasn't. Was it a film that held my attention though out? Yes it was. I have seen so many reviews from people on this site who seem to think their opinion on films should make or break a movie, as if they are a critic that everyone should base their opinions off.Well guess what, ******** to that. Too many people watch a film with expectations of what they think it should be and then rate it against <more>
these expectations. Shameful and ridiculous. I watched this movie and it was great entertainment. That is why I watch movies, to be entertained. A lot of people seem to have lost this basic principle of movies. They are entertainment. They do not have to tick boxes that some artsy tosser says they need to tick to become a movie, screw critics they are just like everyone else. Why should their opinions matter over yours. Do you watch movies simply because someone else thinks you should like it?Have your own opinion, screw what they say. In fact, screw what I say watch it yourself and have your own opinion.All you IMDb wannabe critics who write reviews thinking your the big I am of movies, get a life and rate it for what it is, not what you think it should be on some sort of social scale. In the real world we don't care what you think, get it sorted.Peace out.
Very good and interesting this film. (by indobaseball)
I really like the scene and the story of this film. The storyline of the film is very interesting follow from beginning to end. I highly recommend this film for those of you who like action movies. Murder detective / psychologist Alex Cross Tyler Perry to investigate the case by the cruel and sadistic serial killer Matthew Fox who tortured and murdered female victim slowly. With not much time remaining, he was involved personally against the killer. Both are faced with a game of life and death. This film has intrigue that interesting to watch. The audience might think that Picasso move <more>
alone and is a psychopathic killer individualist. Apparently, he was a hit man driven by an intellectual actor.
I've given it 10 stars because it has been criticised unfairly and it will be a shame to fall at the bottom of the 2012 films list. I've seen a lot worse than that and much better rated. OK, so it's probably nothing like the book, but who cares? I haven't read the book and it didn't stop me from enjoying this otherwise perfectly entertaining movie. I'm sure many people haven't read it so for them it doesn't matter really. What many of us want is just to watch something for the fun of it and not check it for accuracies or fallacies. It's a gripping thriller <more>
with all the good ingredients: a bit of love, some drama, suspense, detective, high tech but definitely contained cat and mouse chase against the clock etc. Is it too simplistic and somewhat predictable? Maybe. But not so it ruins the show. It's a movie that might not change your life but it wouldn't fail to entertain you either. Got some time? Not sure what to watch and there are no Oscar winners out there? Just buy yourself some tickets to this one. Make sure you don't forget the popcorn. You will enjoy it.
Entertaining...Give this movie a fair shot... (by burnettnicole)
I think this movie is getting a bad rap. I found the movie entertaining and I think Tyler Perry did a great job. Is it the best movie in the world? no. But I think that people are being extremely critical. I think it is being rated unfairly and it deserves a chance. I liked the story. Quite honesty, most movies are predictable. It is rare to find a movie that is creative, good acting, amazing story line etc. If the way this movie is being rated was the same judgment scale of some of these other box office films, the 4.8 would be much higher. I think people are judging Tyler Perry by his other <more>
film and plays versus by the movie that is actually being reviewed. I thought he did a great job in the movie and I believe it is worth seeing. I enjoyed it and I think a lot of viewers did too. Unfortunately, everyone acts like they are a movie critic and only wants the same people doing movies. It is unfortunate that there are only a handful of African American actors used as the main character of a film in Hollywood with a role other than a Maid, Thief or some down trodden person. To see just a regular role with a person of color was nice and enjoyable. And all things being equal, he did a fine job! This movie was very good and the ratings have been played down and are unfair. Is it an instant classic? no, but it is a solid film that is worth seeing. Give it a chance... Many other films that IMDb viewers have rated at 7+ have been way more predictable than this one, less of a plot and the same people doing the same thing as they did in part 1, 2, 3 on so on. Give this film a fair shot! At least this was an original script...
Great Movie - No matter what anybody else says. (by belindar-2)
I enjoyed this movie as a thrill seeking exciting journey and found it realistic. This movie moves at a pace that is not too fast or too slow. It is just right. There are enough special effects in the movie to make it interesting. Tyler Perry in this role was different, but he handled it very well. Matthew Fox played a great villain and made you hate him and want him done in. If you have not seen this movie, go to see it with an open mind and I guarantee you will really enjoy it. I also want to comment on the director because the journey he takes the audience on is enjoyable and exciting. The <more>
audience will love the ending. This is truly the best of the Alex Cross movies.
I love this face of Alex ... oh!! and the movie was good too. (by fernbascoe1)
So I finally come up for air and was able to watched this movie. Tyler Perry nailed down Alex Cross' character for me. The problem was that I spent so much time trying to figure out which book I was into that I almost lost out on a good movie. I mean, I have read miles of 'Alex Cross' since the one with the Butcher of Sligo but, boy was I confused? Then I had to wrap my head around the fact that his friend was not African American no problem with that but I got a headache waiting to see Sampson. When I gave up my expectations and started watching, I enjoyed putting a face to <more>
Alex. I'm sure I'll enjoy all future 'Crosses' pun may be intended from now on.
Good movie! But would rather have had Morgan Freeman! (by ksbdolls)
Morgan Freeman has set a standard as Alex Frost that is going to be hard to beat. However, having said that, this shows Alex as a younger man still ready for a good fight. Although I have never thought of him as a young man, I guess this is what he probably would have been in his youth. And Tyler Perry has done a good job portraying a younger Alex. He can do more "rough work" than an older Alex is expected to do. I think Idris Elba would have been a more perfect replacement for Freeman. He's not as old as Freeman, but he's more in line with what I expect Alex Cross to be. In <more>
most of the books, Alex comes across as an older guy, so this doesn't really seem to be him. Again, this is a good movie...just not the character I expected to see.
Chix Chat on Film Review: A new Alex Cross era (by EmmaDinkins)
This is the third James Patterson adapted Cross based novel to hit the big screen with a creatively crafted story that Alex Cross Tyler Perry must solve. I saw this film with the delights who are my mom and my sister and I was treated with a number of unexpected events in the story, which was also a delight considering how so many contemporary movies are too predictable to be thoroughly enjoyed. We left the theater still talking about the unexpected ending. The image of Cross's nemesis in this film stunned me. I could not believe that Party of Five and Lost's Matthew Fox The <more>
Butcher could so convincingly portray a sadistic, murdering, 'sociopath-alogical' maggot. Mr. Fox may have just demonstrated that his range far exceeds playing 'Mr. Right'. I know that this film is loosely based on the Patterson novel Cross, so my thoughts were that since there was some deviation that the film could have told a story that treated women better. I have not read, but having only seen the previous Cross stories on film starring Morgan Freeman, supposed that this one too would have the misogynistic tone of the others and it did. Not saying that the writers are misogynists but there is a theme in these stories. This film started a bit slow, well not the opening scene but after that, perhaps to get the audience acclimated to seeing Mr. Perry in this very dramatic role, which he performed admirably. There was an ease about his confidence, his relationship with his family, loving his wife Maria Carmen Ejogo , respectfulness towards his mother Nana Mama Cicely Tyson and working with his lifelong friend and partner, Tommy Kane Edward Burns . I considered that a number of actors could have succeeded Mr. Freeman in the title role, but Mr. Perry did not disappoint. A good thing about this film was that once the intensity increased to a heightened level, it stayed there. There were some great action sequences with the big explosions and the bodies being blown backwards as also shown in the trailer. But I couldn't help but to notice a bit of movie magic in the climatic fight scene, when Alex Cross did a vertical leap approximately six feet. I almost laughed audibly, but my crew and I had a good laugh about in the car on the way home. Suffice it to say that Mr. Perry has also enhanced his acting range. I liked this film and give it a green light.
Tyler Perry Crosses Over 2 Become An Action Star (by zardoz-13)
Taking Tyler Perry seriously in the role of the forensic psychologist that Morgan Freeman originated in the routine thriller "Kiss the Girls" 1997 and reprised in "Along Came A Spider" 2001 may challenge the African-American actor's fans who cannot envisage him without a wig and a dress. Aside from his most recent Madea comedy "Madea's Witness Protection," Perry has been testing the waters for such a move. He made a cameo appearance in the "Star Trek" reboot, and he played it straight in his own epic "Good Deeds." "Good <more>
Deeds" wasn't the standard-issue, Perry potboiler. Religious themes and comedic tropes were conspicuous by their absences in this entertaining melodrama. "Alex Cross" represents Perry's boldest move to alter his image. Actually, the New Orleans native doesn't appear as out of place as an action hero as many of his fans as well as critics proclaim. Helmed by Rob Cohen, who directed "The Fast and the Furious," "xXx," and "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon," "Alex Cross" qualifies as a gritty, fast-paced, no-holds-barred, above-average police procedural with the title character committing criminal acts to thwart a sadistic professional assassin. Basically, when he isn't channeling Sherlock Holmes with his shrewd insights into the behavior of others, Perry strives to be like Dirty Harry Callahan. Indeed, our gun-toting hero breaks the very laws that he was sworn to uphold so he can nab a sadistic murderer who craves to inflict pain. You've got to give Perry credit for having the nerve to make such an outlandish change in his cinematic modus operandi.A dastardly contract killer who calls himself the Butcher of Sligo Matthew Fox of "Vantage Point" enjoys torturing the victims that he neither shoots nor blasts to smithereens. Motor City Detective Dr. Alex Cross Tyler Perry , his long-time friend & colleague Detective Tommy Kane Edward Burns of "Saving Private Ryan" and Detective Monica Ashe Rachel Nichols of "Conan the Barbarian" set out to apprehend this felon after he kills a wealthy woman, Fan Yau Stephanie Jacobsen , and guns down three bodyguards. This reprobate shears off several of Fan Yau's fingers before he obtains the information that he needs about his prime target. The Butcher of Sligo sets his sights on an affluent Frenchman, Leon Mercier Jean Reno of "Armored" , who dreams about revitalizing Detroit. Cross knows they are contending with an expert who has already figured out every move and counter move that the police will make to catch him. When Cross and company confront the Butcher the first time in a high-rise where the villain has targeted white-collar types, they prove they aren't the usual doughnut munchers. Although the cunning killer eludes the police, Kane draws blood when one of his bullets nicks the bad guy in the shoulder. Nevertheless, the authorities cannot make a positive identification because this sadist has no criminal record. Eventually, Cross discovers that not even the man who hired the killer can identify him. After they find charcoal sketches that the killer plants at the crime scene, the cops nickname him 'Picasso.' Cross is surprised when this homicidal maniac goes after his unit and himself. One of the biggest surprises occurs when the killer botches an attempt on Cross, but not before he ices somebody close to our hero. "Along Came A Spider" scenarists Marc Moss and freshman scribe Kerry Williamson have adapted James Patterson's twelfth novel and penned what would otherwise be an above-average crime thriller. Half of what makes "Alex Cross" so entertaining is the casting of Perry himself as an action hero. He delivers a believable, compelling performance as a Detroit detective pitted against a ruthless assassin. Director Rob Cohen handles the cat and mouse game between the hero and the villain with verve. While Perry acquits himself well in the role, Matthew Fox steals the show as a scary killer who tools around in a Cadillac. Reportedly, the former "Lost" TV star dropped about 40 pounds to make himself look not only emaciated but also vicious. In one amusing scene, as 'Picasso,' the villain kills three guys who try to bully him. Cohen stages a terrific fight between Cross and the villain in the rafters of the decrepit Michigan Theater. Compared with the two earlier Freeman movies, "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider," "Alex Cross" emerges as a superior saga and a new franchise for Perry to show his serious side as an actor.
