TRAILER – Alex Cross

 A new actor takes on James Patterson’s famous character Alex Cross in new film of the same name.

It’s been ages since I’ve read any of the Alex Cross novels by James Patterson so it’s difficult for me to tell how well the casting of Tyler Perry is for the character. It’s also hard not picturing Morgan Freeman in the role as he did such a cracking job in the earlier films. Still none of that means I didn’t enjoy the trailer and it’s nice to see Matthew Fox playing a baddie. The trailer is fairly by the numbers and left me thinking I’ve seen this style of trailer a hundred times before. I also wish they would stop using the whole ‘we’re talking on the phone but I can see you’ gimmick (Borne identity you have a lot to answer for).

Oh and the tagline for this film is ‘Don’t ever Cross Alex Cross’….hmm…really…that is what you’re going to use? Wow just wow.

Alex Cross follows the homicide detective/psychologist (Tyler Perry), from the worldwide best-selling novels by James Patterson, as he meets his match in a serial killer (Matthew Fox). The two face off in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, but when the mission gets personal, Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits in this taut and exciting action thriller.

Rachel Nichols, Edward Burns and Jean Reno co-star.

  1. I don’t think I can buy Tyler Perry as an action hero. I guess it’s because he’s been wearing a dress most of his acting career, and most of what he’s been behind is comedy.

    I accepted him in his Trek cameo though, so open mind.
