BooYah for Tyler Perry!

Some may like to keep their heroes neatly boxed up ,so they know where to find them when they need them.

Tyler Perry, Madea
Madea's Family Reunion - Copyright Lionsgate


If this is you, and you have the beloved Madea neatly wrapped up and ready to go when you need an inspirational laugh, I tell you, Tyler Perry just exploded out of that box with a big ole can o' WhoopA**.

Alex Cross is truly a great movie that is not just a cool action flick with a gripping thriller bent, it is an honest look at the whole life of a man caught in a gruesome death match simply because it's his job.

This is an important movie in this modern day where our military men and women are called out to perform their duty on a battlefield that is not in open spaces, or deserted wastelands, but in the very civilian homes they hope to protect. The complications of such a gruesome duty is a burden many of them bare in silence on their return home.

Even for those warriors on the home front, the police, firefighters, paramedics - any and all who serve the community be it Homeland or Foreign soil, are met with horrors unimaginable that have been with us since the dawn of conflict and continue with us as we struggle over life and love.

The core of the matter is not hatred and war, but love and how we choose to share it. There is nothing more powerful on Earth. One cannot 'tolerate' love. It is too powerful a force that insists upon being reckoned. That kind of power, however, cannot be controlled, and when one attempts to do so -- hatred and war ensue."-- Gregga J. Johnn (yes, I am quoting myself, lol)

Go see this movie in all it's horrific glory and see the triumph of Love expressed in the complication of truth.

Tyler Perry; you are one of my heroes.
