Strange that I haven’t seen as much advertising for Tyler Perry’s “Alex Cross” as much as I thought I would. I’ve seen ads here and there, but not the kind of advertising blitz that usually accompanies a big movie. It’s Perry, a big can’t-miss movie star in a brand franchise, what could be bigger than that? Then again, maybe I’m watching the wrong channels. In any case, check out seven clips from “Alex Cross” to get you ready for the films opening next week. Are you buying Tyler Perry as a badass cop that will send your soul to hell if you touch his loved ones? One thing’s for sure: the contrast between a freakishly ripped Matthew Fox and a tad paunchy Tyler Perry is kinda amusing.
Crusading Detective/Psychologist ALEX CROSS (Tyler Perry) meets his match against the psychotic, mob hit man, MICHAEL SULLIVAN aka THE BUTCHER. As Cross investigates the hit man’s gruesome murders, Sullivan decides to send him a deadly message by murdering his wife in cold blood. Now enraged, Cross vows to hunt down the killer if it’s the last thing he does. However, Sullivan is a serial killing mastermind and continues to evade Cross while pushing him to an ethical breaking point as a cop and father. As Cross closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable–a revelation that could change everything. With unstoppable action, and unforeseeable twists, this suspenseful action thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Also starring Jean Reno, Edward Burns, Rachel Nichols, Giancarlo Esposito, John C. McGinley, Carmen Ejogo, Chad Lindberg, Cicely Tyson, and directed by Rob Cohen.
