Trivia

Director Rob Cohen usually hires composer Randy Edelman to write the music scores to his films. However their last collaboration The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) also has some additional music composed by John Debney, who went on to score Alex Cross for Cohen. It is unusual that the director hired the composer of the additional music from his previous film to be the main composer of his next film. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Do not see this movie unless you want to have fun picking out everything that is wrong with it.
8 February 2013 | by 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.
