I'm a HUGE fan of the James Patterson books, yet they keep screwing up this character on the big screen (yes, even KISS THE GIRLS - as good of a movie as it was - didn't "do" the character properly). Denzel Washington SHOULD have played Cross in the 90s instead of Morgan Freeman; and Tyler Perry was another bad choice this second time around.

It's a shame, because the movies have never portrayed how awesome the novels/characters are.

Off Topic: Try being a fan of John Sandford's novels. They've done two "Prey" TV movies: "Mind Prey" starring Eriq La Salle which I suspect was a failed pilot or movie series a la "Jesse Stone" with Tom Selleck and "Certain Prey" starring Mark Harmon. Both of them were atrocious and didn't come even close to getting the main character, Lucas Davenport, right. Personally, I see Josh Brolin as Davenport.

As for Cross, at one time Idris Elba was going to play the part. THAT I would've like to have seen.

I'll rent this. I wanted to see this in the theatre, but considering how horrible most of the reviews were, I'll wait to rent it for $2 at my local DVD/BD rental store.

It seems like a decent time killer at home.

I actually did like this in theaters, but not enough to buy. Perry did some good dramatic stuff, Matthew Perry also did well as the bad guy.

Well Matthew Perry acting like Matthew Fox acting like a bad guy is some dramatic stuff.
