Get used to that headline. Tyler Perry has hung up his house dress and put on his crime solver suit. He’s no nonsense and he gets his man. That man is Matthew Fox who publicly swore never to return to TV after “Lost.” Here he plays a bald bad guy.
From the Youtube Channel:
“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.
Has Tarantino gone too far? Is this his “Heaven’s Gate?” OK, I just watched it. Not as bad as I thought it would be when I wrote the first sentence. Looks like fun. The way it was described to me by my brother was a lot worse. It sounded like a mess.
But it’s another Tarantino re-writes history and makes it bad ass. When is he doing a a 9/11 movie? Call it “2 Sune” or “Towers Fall” which is the name of the main character who turns the planes around at the last minute and blows up the cave the Bin Laden was hiding in.
Also looks a bit like “Wild Wild West.” Leo is doing his best John Travolta bad guy over the top thing.
Listen, Tarantino had a Jewish Brad Pitt kill Hitler, I’m sure he can pull off a cop/slave buddy movie. It’s like “Midnight Run on the Underground Railroad.”
With the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.
