Opening in Orlando — Friday, October 19th

Alex Cross — This season’s WTF casting coup puts Tyler Perry into the role of novelist James Patterson’s homicide detective, shown here on the trail of a serial killer played by Matthew Fox (taking time out from his Twitter-documented hobby of beating women to play the bad guy for a change). Having a beloved icon of the black female demo go up against a white misogynist might seem like a scenario better suited to a presidential debate than to a wide-release popcorn flick , but director Rob Cohen is the quality maven who gave us Stealth and xXx, so get those award ballots ready. (PG-13)

    Soooo… Pretty shitty week for new movies, I guess?

  • Rob Boylan

    At least he refrained from playing the killer in drag in this one.
