I was never really fussed about catching this initially. Having previously enjoyed 'Kiss The Girls', but 'Along Came A Spider', not so much, was there anything more to be done with Alex Cross? I was also very sceptical the lead's recasting with Tyler Perry, and Rob Cohen directing. So, the verdict?
Well, it's not half bad folks. It certainly doesn't break any new ground, and some of the cop thriller clichés run thick and fast. It's never boring though, and Tyler Perry (whilst no Morgan Freeman), is pretty good. Ed Burns pretty much goes through the motions, but the massive standout here is Matthew Fox. Fans of Lost, will find him barely recognisable in this, and he makes for a superb baddie. Shame the box office didn't deliver on this one, as I would have caught a follow up.
