Review

Our Score
Tyler Perry has made a fortune from his Madea series of films, in which he plays a mouthy, gun-totin' grandmother in a floral-print dress. This makes him an unusual choice to take on the role of homicide detective/forensic psychologist Alex Cross, the creation of bestselling author James Patterson and already played by Morgan Freeman in two films (Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider). It was not the wisest of moves by Perry, as this is a thoroughly ordinary thriller, featuring an incoherent plot, some laughably dumb dialogue and a couple of ham-fisted performances. Set in Detroit, the film follows Cross as he hunts a sadistic killer who begins to target the cop's nearest and dearest. Matthew Fox makes a suitably unhinged baddie and there are some half-decent action scenes, but the film has little else to offer.

Summary

Concluded.
