Alex Cross 

Sadists only

Oh dear.
  • Oh dear.

Tyler Perry is somehow supposed to stand in for Morgan Freeman in the catastrophic Alex Cross. Previously played by Freeman in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, Alex Cross is a Sherlockian detective on the hunt for a sadistic assassin obsessed with experiencing pain. That by-the-numbers case falls aside when the killer, ludicrously and hilariously played by a jacked out Matthew Fox, starts targeting Cross' team. There's so much here to hate, from the stilted dialogue where characters describe each others' motivations, to the saccharine family-time Cross spends with his wife and kids. The greatest train wreck though is watching Perry and Fox “match wits” in their respective roles. One actor deliriously out of his depth, the other making every wrong choice imaginable. Alex Cross is highly enjoyably, if, like Fox's assassin, you get off on pain.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
