** 2 STAR RATING (out of 4) | Crime drama - PG-13. 102 minutes — at area theaters.
The actor is best known for making his audiences laugh as Madea, the comedic over the top fictional character from the Mabel Simmons trilogy. The character is a towering, massive, elderly woman, with a fiercely vindictive nature about herself. Some of Madea’s famous quotes are:
“Well when you gettin’ got and somebody done got you and you go get them, when you get em’, everybody’s gon’ get got.”
However, in his new film, Alex Cross you do not get the insanely over reactive but there is a commonality between the two; a willingness to threaten with the use of weapons, drive a Cadillac erratically, use physical violence, as well as use any and all means necessary to show up a wrongdoer or offending party.
The multi-faceted director brings to his fans something new….well almost. What you do get is a lack luster action packed/gangster type film. And it appears, Perry connects with his inner thug…. featuring plenty of scenes highlighting guns and smoke!
At the start of the film, Cross is beating his wife at a guessing game they play. It’s Perry’s first lead role that he did not produce, direct or write.
The film is from the mind of novelist James Patterson, the script by Mark Moss and Kerry Williamson which takes the man back to his pre-Washington and FBI days, when he was a cop on the Detroit police force. Perry took over the role from Morgan Freeman who first played Alex Cross in the film Kiss The Girls and Along Came A Spider.
Perry is about 20 years younger than Morgan Freeman was when he played the roles.
Alex Cross is a psycho thriller centered around a maniac, Matthew Fox that ‘loves inflicting pain on his victims,’ seriously….he says that in the film. Fox mimic’s Christian Bale’s character in the Machinist, with his significant weight lost giving him an almost ghostly, sinister look.
One of the biggest hurdles for Dr. Alex Cross is that since he was last on the big screen, mainstream media has been feeding audiences a steady diet of FBI profilers and forensic agents via Criminal Minds and Law and Order, all of which track monstrous serial killers.
The cheesiest part of the film, which is also the climax is a shoot out set in Detroit. During the scene, director Rob Cohen scouted out the General Motors Heritage Museum and fell for the one-of-a-kind Caddy. The “minute I saw that car, I thought it was right out of Al Capone,” says Cohen. “So wouldn’t it be funny to talk gangster in a real gangster car.” ”They get into a car you’d see on The Untouchables. It’s a fun way to bring a private conversation about,” he adds.
And just in case you were wondering, where in the hell is Madea and who the hell is Cross…understand this new bad boy character is something Perry has always dreamed of.
“I’ve been in the business for a very long time, and Cohen is the first man to ever offer me a role like this. He saw it first,” Perry said. “I’ve always wanted to, but it had to be the right role, and this was the right situation. I read the script and I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can do this, or if I want to try to take this on,’” he said. “And then I realized that [the] physicality and description [James Patterson] had for Alex Cross in the books, and I said, ‘Wait a minute, this is me.’ And I couldn’t put it down, and I realized I had to do it.
I couldn’t be Morgan Freeman playing Alex Cross. I had to do the best job I could as Tyler Perry, cause Morgan Freeman is brilliant!” he said. “He played God in movies. All I had to do – or could do – was the best, the absolute best that I could do.”
It will be interesting to observe if much of Perry’s generally loyal audience turns out to see him in a major change of pace, as well as if non-fans are curious to check him as a potential action hero.
The film cost $23 Million to film.
I give the film 2 stars for effort. I like Tyler Perry as a girl…better. ( staring straight faced)

Back in 2009 Steve Harvey’s book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” quickly became a bestseller. Giving women the scoop on what men really think about love, relationships, intimacy and commitment.
Harvey was no Dr.Phil but women cherished his secrets and tidbits which in some cases if they were lucky, gave them the upper hand in their relationships. Within weeks of its release, the ‘self help’ book was under the arm of almost every female that were looking for better success rates in their love life.
The film follows a group of men who realize their relationships are being infiltrated by Harvey’s self-help book. The women are highlighting away at the pages and using every tactic to get what they want out of their affairs. And while many critics claim the movie looks more like an infomercial, what saves the film is the ensemble cast of attractive, talented actors — Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson , Gabrielle Union and Regina Hall, to name a few.
Check out some of the reviews below –
“Think Like a Man is an occasional funny 90-minute romantic comedy. Unfortunately it’s interrupted by about 30 minutes worth of Steve Harvey commercials. Once the movie starts, it feels like an ad for the book. We see Harvey on TV, talking about it. We get Harvey on screen, talking right to us. We get endless closeups of the dust jacket, of various pages, of actual highlighted sentences. We get everything but a way to drop it in our Amazon shopping cart.
It’s not only shameless, it detracts from what this movie could have been, and still is when the self-promoting Harvey shuts up – which is an old-fashioned battle-of-the-sexes comedy, focusing on four fictional, supposedly modern couples.” – Tawanda Cawthon, EOTM! Online
” ‘Think Like a Man’ is a romantic ensemble comedy — an excessively populated and chatty two-hour one — spun from comedian and syndicated radio host Steve Harvey’s 2009 self-help relationship bestseller ‘Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man’…The fact that the movie adaptation uses just the latter half of Harvey’s book title is your first clue to its slant. It centers around a fraternity of six friends — each designated in the intro as a particular ‘type’ (as per Harvey’s book) — who regularly meet to play basketball, drink and talk about women. Four of them discover that the women they are involved with (who are also ‘types’) are applying Harvey’s wisdom to the relationship dynamic, so the men study up and turn the game to the home-team advantage for what amounts to a temporary fix.” — Jennie Punter, The Globe and Mail
“Forget hackneyed clichés about Players and Dreamers and the scheming women who seek to domesticate them. Focus on the pleasures of watching a group of gifted actors spar and seduce each other with genuine warmth, and ‘Think Like a Man’ just might go straight to your head.” — Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
“Every primary cast member is appealing, elevating the disposable plot — men and women are in constant battle, yawn — into a funny, sexy take on contemporary dating. Middling lines are delivered with sharp sass; tired stereotypes are … well, still tired, actually (women manipulate and nag, men lie and evade). But at least the actors offer gentle twists that take away some of the sting.” — Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark Tickets
” ‘Think Like a Man’ is occasionally funny, though its dirty riffs — most provided by Kevin Hart as the Happily Divorced Guy — are as formulaic as its earnest parts. The movie isn’t liable to surprise you. Nor will it bore or offend you, even if you find Mr. Harvey’s shtick more old-school sexist than old-school courtly.” — Rachel Saltz, The New York Times
“These 30-something folks, comfortable in their circumstances and their skins, are allowed to be smart of heart if baffled by the 21st-century courtship game. There’s nothing profound going on here; the truisms don’t blossom into life-enriching truths. It’s more like the person you meet at a bar who, on second glance, is surprisingly attractive. Call ‘Think Like a Man’ a perfectly satisfactory one-night stand at the movies.” — Richard Corliss, TIME

Just in time for Christmas kids, here comes the new trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises,” which doesn’t premiere until July, 2012. The follow-up to The Dark Knight — set eight years after the Joker made a mess of Gotham City and a killing joke out of the caped crusader’s brand of vigilante justice — stars Oscar winner Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, but the prologue (which actually represents the first several minutes of the three-quel itself) is all about Bane, a smart and seething brute with a mecha-malevolent mask played by Thomas Hardy (Warrior, Inception).
