Every once in a while, there is a combination of actors who deliver a story that can only be described as "perfect". Paul Newman and Robert Redford are an example. Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd, especially in the two "Alex Cross" character movies fall into that category. The story, to be sure, is first rate - and the twists and turns are deliciously entertaining - but without the deliver of these two fine actors, some of the story's "edge" may have been lost. Also there are no "love scenes" between them - only an emerging mutual high regard and sincere respect for the essence of each of the characters portrayed. This is one of those "don't miss this film" films. I'll be watching this movie, over, and over - you can bet on it.
