If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Detective Alex Cross, a character created by novelist James Patterson, has thus far appeared in films 'Along Came a Spider' and 'Kiss the Girls' played by Morgan Freeman. Now actor/filmmaker Tyler Perry assumes the role in Rob Cohen's not-so-enigmatically titled 'Alex Cross.' This time around, Cross must match wits with a sadistic killer...so pretty much the same as every other outing. The first trailer for the film has just been released. It looks...kind of disastrous actually. Perry is strikingly wooden and the "snappy" action movie taglines are about as committed to brevity as a William Faulkner sentence. And I'm sorry, Matthew Fox ('Lost') looks super silly as the UFC fighter/killer. I could be very, very wrong of course, and I hope I am, but this has potential to be the guilty pleasure bomb of the year. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think.
