Trivia

The screenplay was originally based on the James Patterson novel CROSS. For marketing purposes, the film title was changed to that of another Patterson novel, "I, Alex Cross". The screenplay, however, is a very loose adaptation, based on CROSS; similarities between book and screenplay are few. See more »

Goofs

Dr. Cross tells Daramus Holiday how the D.A. (District Attorney) will deal with him if he refuses to cooperate. Michigan has County Prosecutors, not District Attorneys. See more »

Do not see this movie unless you want to have fun picking out everything that is wrong with it.
8 February 2013 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

This movie is laughably bad. The only saving grace in its favour is the ability to add it to the pantheon of movies that are so bad they are good. Only, it takes itself far too seriously, and think it's far too good, to be worthy of an addition to that list. The movie is nonsense in every way. Without spoiling anything, I will sum up how ludicrous the movie is with one comment (and this kind of stuff runs throughout the movie): we are supposed to believe that a pudgy Tyler Perry can beat a super cut, super bad-ass Matthew Fox in a fight, when at the beginning of the movie Matthew Fox destroys a seasoned MMA fighter. As Dr. Evil would say: Rrrrrrright. Tyler Perry, by the way, is a horrendously bad actor. I cannot believe they were talking sequel before this movie came out. I also can't believe that the author of the books about Alex Cross was actually touting this movie. If I had written this character, and this trash came out, I could not distance myself more from this movie. I'd be like Alan Moore, and not allow my name anywhere on this crap.
