About the Movie

Tyler Perry delivers a dynamic performance as Detroit homicide detective/psychologist Dr. Alex Cross, the popular character created by best-selling novelist James Patterson. While tracking down a vicious serial killer (Matthew Fox), Cross nearly meets his match when the case shifts from a high stakes game of cat-and-mouse into a personal mission. Soon, the detective is pushed to the very edge of his moral and psychological limits in this taut, exciting action-thriller.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A grim, dispiritingly stupid waste of time, energy, money and talent ... – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Oct 18, 2012

Rotten: So cloddish, slapdash, gracelessly written, and visually fugly that it's difficult to distinguish Perry's limitations in the role from those of the whole unpleasant enterprise. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 21, 2012

Rotten: [Cross] has a really bad temper, really big guns and really bad dialogue. He will use all of them excessively if pushed. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Oct 18, 2012

Rotten: A strong candidate for dumbest film of the year ... – Eric Hynes, Village Voice, Oct 19, 2012

Great Book.... Terrible movie

If I had not read the book prior to seeing the movie I might have liked it. The acting was not bad but it was not even close to being like the book. I left terribly disappointed and I feel it must have been hard for Mr Patterson to support this film . They literally changed everything.

A very lengthy Cadillac CTS commercial

paid for by GM


This movie was made by Tyler Perry for Tyler Perry just so he could play a tough guy hero, and it's embarassingly obvious.
