Top Ten Worst Movies of 2012 (That I Saw)

27 December 2012 8:39 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't go see every movie. I do my best to see as many as I can, but there are some I just don't feel I need to see in order to do my job. Those I tend to skip are films I'm quite certain I will not enjoy because what need is there, really, for me to head into a movie in a foul mood, with little enthusiasm to review a movie? Especially if said movie is the reason my mood is so foul. That said, sometimes the job takes you places you would prefer not to go and sometimes those movies you don't expect to be very good are movies you need to go see. Such films found their way onto this list. Some of the other entries are simply films I wanted to be good, films that piqued my curiosity or just thought would be fun. They weren't. »

Review: ‘Alex Cross’ Is Ridiculous Dross

19 October 2012 7:45 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You’d think a thriller about a brilliantly dogged detective matching wits with a sadistically smart serial killer would be at least somewhat entertaining. You’d be right in thinking that too, and if that’s the kind of film you’re looking for I recommend Memories of Murder, Copycat or Seven to fill your needs. Because there’s nothing about the new film Alex Cross that comes even close to brilliant, smart or intentionally entertaining. Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) is a homicide detective and doctor (of some kind but probably a psychologist) in Detroit who’s grown weary of his police beat and is considering taking an adviser role with the FBI. Before he can convince his pregnant wife that the move to Washington DC is in their best interest he’s tasked with solving a multiple murder with a tortured woman at its center. Cross’ team includes his childhood friend, Det »

Review: Holy Madea! Tyler Perry Replaces Morgan Freeman In Awful Alex Cross

18 October 2012 1:38 PM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Tyler Perry, best known for his performances as the sassy female character Madea, makes a dramatic shift playing detective and criminal psychologist Alex Cross in veteran director Rob Cohen’s big-screen fumble of the James Patterson novel "Cross," one of many crime novels in the popular author’s "Alex Cross" series. In a loose and surprisingly awful adaptation of Patterson’s 12th "Alex Cross" novel by writers Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson, Cross chases a sadistic killer-for-hire (Matthew Fox) through the streets of Detroit on what may be his last case before taking a job with the F.B.I. and relocating to Washington D.C. (the locale of Patterson’s books). Perry is something of a casting letdown once one learns that Idris Elba, star of the tense BBC America crime drama Luther, was originally slated to replace original franchise star Morgan Freeman from the 1997 film Kiss the Girls »

'Alex Cross' (2012) Movie Review

18 October 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

After about 10 minutes of Alex Cross you realize you've just watched ten minutes that could have been cut from the film. We're introduced to the title character, detective (and doctor) Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) and his team -- Tommy (Ed Burns) and Monica (Rachel Nichols) -- in a routine foot chase as a means of getting to know the generic group dynamic. This is followed by an introduction to the film's villain (Matthew Fox) whose been hired to carry out a series of high-profile killings, the first of which he carries out by worming his way into an underground boxing match as a means of capturing the attention of a young female we'll soon come to know as his first victim. It's at this point Alex Cross could have actually kicked in. To do so would have introduced us to the film's killer, knowing nothing about him other than the »

Alex Cross hasn't opened yet, a follow-up is already in talks. According to Deadline, a sequel to the upcoming Tyler Perry starrer Alex Cross called Double Cross, based on James Patterson's novel, is close to becoming a reality as a deal's coming together. Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson adapted Alex Cross, and whether the scribes will be back for Double Cross, remains to be seen. In the Double Cross novel, Alex's life is calming dawn when he's drawn back into the game to take on a new criminal mastermind.

Tyler Perry And James Patterson Finalizing Alex Cross Film Sequel With QED: Exclusive

17 October 2012 7:10 PM, PDT | Deadline Hollywood | See recent Deadline Hollywood news »

Exclusive: I’ve learned that the deal coming together will turn bestselling author James Patterson’s crime novel Double Cross into a 2nd movie starring Tyler Perry as the famous Washington DC crimefighter/psychologist. Perry’s first turn as Alex Cross opens this Friday from Qed. Summit Entertainment is distributing in the U.S. It’s Perry’s first lead role that he didn’t produce or direct or write – and his reviews so far have been rather good. Certainly a lot better than I expected from the star of the crossdressing Madea movies. Although the critics have been harsh on helmer Rob Cohen and the film as a whole. Qed International’s Bill Block put together Alex Cross at a cost of only $25M (lowered to $23M with Louisiana tax subsidies). He chased down the book rights from Patterson for under $1 million, then hired Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson »

Safe House Pt.II – New International Poster for Alex Cross with Matthew Fox & Tyler Perry

6 August 2012 11:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The first trailer and poster for the upcoming crime/thriller Alex Cross landed back in June, and gave us a brilliant look at the film and what we can expect from it. In short, we should be seeing a great new side of Tyler Perry, and an immense new side to Matthew Fox as the antagonist, who looks more hench/intense than almost anyone ever.

The film will be opening first in Russia, ahead of its UK and Us releases, and now a new poster promoting that Russian release has made its way online – you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a poster for Safe House, because this new poster looks almost identical to some we saw for the Denzel Washington- / Ryan Reynolds-starrer earlier in the year.

First Poster and Trailer for Alex Cross with Matthew Fox & Tyler Perry

26 June 2012 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Starring Tyler Perry as the eponymous Alex Cross, a role previously played by Morgan Freeman, this new adaptation of James Patterson’s series of books is looking pretty awesome.

We got eight first-look images from the film last month, showing off a Matthew Fox absolutely ripped to the teeth, and now the first poster has debuted over at Moviefone.

The tagline is a little cheesy – ‘Don’t Ever Cross Alex Cross’ – but the Perry/Fox combination with the city backdrop looks pretty awesome.

“After Washington DC detective Alex Cross is told that a family member has been murdered, he vows to track down the killer. He soon discovers that she was not his first victim and that things are not what they seem.”
