|From foxy to creepy|
Let's see, other nice things to say... The idea behind the story was interesting. Oh and anyone into revenge movies and such would totally dig this movie. Revenge is gotten. Um, I giggled at one point but it wasn't what the director or actor would have wanted. There's this scene in the police station where Alex Cross (who, if you aren't familiar is a detective with a background in psychology so he's really good at his job) says to his chief that there is no profile for the guy they're trying to capture. Seconds later, Cross turns, looks off into the distance (actually out a window maybe) and proceeds to work up this elusive profile. Perry is so earnest but it was just so...awkward.
I think folks less critical than I would probably enjoy the movie. Giancarlo Esposito showed up and I always enjoy him. Cicely Tyson was in it too and put in one of the better performances. The woman is stunning, y'all!. Edward Burns was fine even though I still can't get past his voice. The directing was meh. The dialogue was not good and sometimes really bordered on cheesy. I dunno, again, if you like revenge flicks then you might get a kick out of this. Or if you're just weirdly fascinated with Matthew Fox then I'd definitely recommend it. Dude needs to go back to TV. Movies are not his thing (see also: Vantage Point and Speed Racer).
