Rotten Tomatoes gave Alex Cross just one star out of five based on 95 reviews. lol
Anyway, I was very disappointed with Taken - albeit the first one. It was full of cliches and was your typical stereotype Hollywood mumbo-jumbo. Even Liam Neeson couldn't save it for me. I just couldn't get past the fact that, a 17 year old would still be into ponies, but I guess they showed it to give her character a bit more innocent look. Very contrived. I couldn’t wait for it to finish when I was at the theatre to be honest.
Which reminds me, I haven’t been to the theatre in a while and am craving for it but just don’t see anything good coming up. I did see some old movies in the meant time and highly recommend all of them. A Cry In the Dark
(it’s your famous “the Dingo ate my baby” story. Meryl Streep is amazing in this one and so is Sam Neill. Made in 1988 I think)North Country
(typically I am not a big fan of Charlize Theron but she did an excellent job in this one. I like her in this sort of roles where she can do more than her looks)
And finally, In the Valley of Elah
(the ever so great Tommy Lee Jones and once again Charlize Theron and here, she shines again. Great movie though very sad. I could not guess the ending.)
All three were excellent movies in my opinion but these movies might be a bit too old for people who are still in thier early 20s...aka Sir Pandas.
