Det. Cross may be highly intelligent, however, his actions as a police officer are lacking. When he encountered an armed highly skilled assassin that had killed multiple armed opponents, he did not shoot him. This of course would have negated the rest of the film. See more »
Are you having fun?
Fun. Am I having fun? Yes. Yes, I suppose I am. But I think you'd find my hobby boring.
So your hobby is inflicting pain?
Oh, no, no. That's... that's not just a hobby. Inflicting pain is a crucial part of my true calling.

Good, but still way below Morgan Freeman standards.
I just got through seeing Alex Cross. It was a good enough movie to pay the $5.75 matinée price. The movie had decent action scenes, which is totally out of the norm for Tyler Perry, that kept me entertained. The acting in this movie was pretty good and Tyler Perry himself did do a pretty good job with his part especially being that this is his first action roll. But with all that being said I still can see why Morgan Freeman turned the roll down. This movie was kind of predictable. I was telling my wife what was going to happen in the movie and I hadn't seen this movie before hand, done any research on this movie nor have I heard anyone talking about pieces of the movie. Now I've seen some of Tyler Perry's movies and those ones I have seen is what keeps me from watching his other movies, but this one, although he didn't make this one, is better than anything else he played in. Except Why Did I Get Married. So If you're not doing anything on a Sunday afternoon and want to see a little action and a little suspense it's O.K. to go and see this one.
