Alex Cross

Don't Ever Cross Alex Cross


Alex Cross
Hollywood's attempt to reboot the Alex Cross franchise, which previously starred Morgan Freeman, has met with poor critical reception. The homicide detective-cum-psychologist meets his match in a serial killer. The two face off in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, but when the mission gets personal, Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconClichéd plotline and uninspired acting make for a boring film

Cape Times
Todd McCarthy quote iconIt's all rather shaky.
5
Box Office
Pete Hammond quote iconPerry is like we have never seen him before in an emotional, powerhouse performance that doesn't let up, and the simply-named Alex Cross should be a solid box office achiever that draws in both Perry's loyal fan base and aficionados of the police thriller genre.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconHad Freeman returned for the role, at least that would have provided some emotional depth when the moments call for it (something Perry doesn't have a prayer of reaching), but even that terrific actor and that incredible voice couldn't have overcome the prolific script and direction issues.

Tomatometer quote iconTyler Perry and Matthew Fox do their best, but they're trampled by Rob Cohen's frustrating direction and a tasteless, lazily written screenplay.
