Alex Cross - matinee

Decided to skip the free screenin' of Cloud Atlas tonight, went to an early bird matinee of Alex Cross, instead.

I agree with Captain Craig, the shaky cam durin' the final fight sequence was out of place and annoyin'. Completely unnecessary.

And I don't see why this couldn't have just been a generic cop drama. They just used Alex Cross for the name, or brand or whatever, 'cause the character Tyler Perry was playin' wasn't the same guy from the books.

But, I will give 'em credit for not usin' an origin story to develop Alex Cross as a bad ass detective/profiler. No flashbacks to the police academy or medical school. They didn't have to show him assemblin' his team, they were already there. And the movie kicked off with 'em chasin' a baddie. Kinda wish the folks who made superhero movies would follow this approach.

Think I may go see Seven Psychopaths tomorrow. For sure goin' to see An American Werewolf in London tomorrow night...
