Trivia

Tyler Perry trained extensively in krav maga - the martial arts favored by the Israeli secret service. He said it was "the most ass-kicking workout" he'd ever experienced. See more »

Goofs

Several routine police procedures are absent. Since the killer had called the cell phone of Det. Cross, all his phones would be monitored. The funeral would have surveillance. High profile threats would involve a SWAT team, not just 3 detectives. See more »

Quotes

Alex Cross: Are you having fun?
Picasso: [laughs] Fun. Am I having fun? Yes. Yes, I suppose I am. But I think you'd find my hobby boring.
Alex Cross: So your hobby is inflicting pain?
Picasso: Oh, no, no. That's... that's not just a hobby. Inflicting pain is a crucial part of my true calling.

A Cross to Be Placed on A Grave
19 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

When you make an action crime film please remember to connect all the dots so that we, the audience, can achieve some sense of the story line. The trailer was a slice of many of the best scenes but, unfortunately the real film falls so sadly short of good storyline due to poor dialog and some jerky acting that the viewer struggles to make sense of the various actors.

If this film had been prescreened (proof read) any average movie-goer would have pointed out just how poorly made it was. I sensed that Tyler Perry gave a over acted performance. I really wanted to like this film when it first came out but, it just was so boring and unimaginative I began to realize that it was due to faulty construction of scenes and character's dialog. This was mostly due to the director.
