Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 8 January 2013
My title probably sums up the whole review. If you are a fan of the Alex Cross books then you will be disappointed with this film. The only real connection is the ethnicity of the star and the make up of his family. Its a while since I read a Cross novel but I'm sure his partner was a very big black man not an average sized white guy. Rob Cohen must have seen 'Bad Boys' so he knows a film can be successful with two black leads.
The beginning of the film sets Cross up as a black Sherlock Holmes with excellent deductive skills but it soon degenerates into the standard paint by numbers American action thriller as our heroes run around trying to thwart a psychotic hitman who is out to kill a French tycoon. I guessed the hitman's employer in the first half hour before we'd even met him.
I'm not saying that this isn't an enjoyable film and if you've never read any of the books you will probably not be disappointed but if you're a fan then you might wish to stick to Morgan Freeman's potrayal of your hero.
