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

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 »

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.

Worth a watch
5 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Although I have only given this movie a 5/10 I still don't regret watching it. There are simply a lot of better films out there. It was one I managed to get cheaper tickets for so perhaps that's why I am not as critical as others. I found it entertaining and I was fully engrossed in the story. I felt some of the acting was a bit ropey but then again I thought Matthew Fox was superb. He really did portray a rather scary character, very different from that of Jack in Lost. There was some rather cheesy and altogether cheap parts to the movie, but overall it was a good watch. I can understand why some may have given this film a very low rating, but for me I saw a lot of positives.
