Though they lack chemistry as a team, it's gratifying to see both Perry and Burns stretching in ways they haven't before.

Nothing works. Or some of it works, but that doesn't matter because what's working is so deeply, painfully boring.

Alex Cross is NOT madea! Furthermore, Tyler Perry is NOT Madea

By myers428
This is an AWESOME movie. Not Tyler Perry's usual funny overcome the tragedy kind of movie. You run through the whole range of emotions as he is chasing and bringing justice to a serial killer/...

This movie keeps you engaged...

By FandangoMike1
This movie was an action packed thriller combined with layers of emotion, suspense, anxiety, and enough twists to keep you guessing throughout. The 'assassin' in the movie was certainly an enigma,...

Pleasantly surprised

By bevarm44
I really enjoyed the movie, awesome date night movie! Tyler Perry did a solid acting job but Matthew Fox was a scary villain that kept me on the edge of my seat!...

Tyler Perry can . . . .

By ChaosRN
It was refreshing to see Tyler Perry continue his excelleant practice of his craft, and let someone else handle the other details as he puts him self on the screen....

Alex Cross Just Okay!

By soulo
I read somewhere that Tyler Perry replaced Idris Elba for the lead role. Why? Idris is ten times the actor Perry is. Maybe Idris felt the script was too weak, which I personally felt was missing...

Good storyline. It is a must see. But the "nudity"references are incorrect.

By dblsaxman
This film was good casting and acting. Tyler Perry in his non-directing debut was excellent. Actually the portrayal of the supporting cast was good as well. Matthew Fox plays a believable...
