A Cross to Be Placed on A Grave

When you make an action crime film please remember to connect all the dots so that we, the audience, can achieve some sense of the story line. The trailer was a slice of many of the best scenes but, unfortunately the real film falls so sadly short of good storyline due to poor dialog and some jerky acting that the viewer struggles to make sense of the various actors.

If this film had been prescreened (proof read) any average movie-goer would have pointed out just how poorly made it was. I sensed that Tyler Perry gave a over acted performance. I really wanted to like this film when it first came out but, it just was so boring and unimaginative I began to realize that it was due to faulty construction of scenes and character's dialog. This was mostly due to the director.

You don't play the game. The game plays you.

The film has only a little character build for master detective Dr. Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) who pays attention to details and then reconstructs the scene, always correctly. In this film Tyler Perry doesn't play his own mom...which may have been an improvement. Alex Cross becomes involved in a complex cat and mouse game with a highly skilled assassin in Matthew Fox.

Cross is aided by his partner Tommy Kane (Edward Burns) and Monica Ashe (Rachel Nichols). The film lacked originality and a good twist. Tyler Perry played a very stiff character, if you can believe that. Tyler's ability to figure things out from little clues should have been the fun part of the film. It worked well in the early scene with his wife (Carmen Ejogo). Instead it was very stiff and infrequently used. His partner should have said a sarcastic, "Brilliant Holmes!" at least once.

Parental Guide: Minor F-bomb usage. Implied sex. No nudity. Some torture. 3 stars is pushing it. I thought newly released "Fire with Fire" was better.

Bad choice for "Tyler Perry" to play the lead role. "Idris Elba" - it should've been !

"Tyler Perry" ....really ?? Were the producers possibly on a drunken-binge for days or off-their-medication when they made this fatal error of choosing the "main" character ?? And this isn't even mentioning the writing, directing, and other characters. But choosing such an unworthy and a "bad choice' for the title role of the character that the movie is named after....is catastrophic !

My choice would have been...."Idris Elba", then get better writers and a better director and "Cross" fans would have been a lot happier. ( and the movie would've also made a lot more money for these obviously incompetent producers).
