Perry's got surprising talent, and it would have been nice to see him better utilized by a director with a more discerning eye for actor-interaction.

Clobbers you with stupidity so often that you eventually stop noticing.

The usual over-familiar mélange of forensic evidence and titillating torture porn that reminds me why I don't watch network television procedurals.

At least this confirms my long-held suspicion that Tyler Perry is drawn to bad scripts whether he wrote them or not.

The cliched plot and terrible dialogue make this so-called "thriller" nearly unbearable.

Where to start with all the things wrong with this film?

Never quite rises above a run-of-the-mill, cop-chases-killer-thriller flick, or much expands beyond would happen if an hour-long TV drama was given an extra half-hour to stretch.

Suffering from delusions of franchise, this is more Scooby-Doo than Silence of the Lambs, and bears all the hallmarks of a cult bad film in the making.

Cohen slices and dices the finale so much you cannot fathom it.

If you crave a genial crime thriller about a forensic psychologist then go and buy a boxset of Cracker. Alex Cross is simply an inexcusable misfire.

A lot of rather unpleasant things unfold, delivered with a consummate laziness that it's terribly hard to engage with.

[Perry] has rarely been less convincing than when locking and loading from his home arsenal or dangling from a decaying Detroit edifice.

The only appeal here is the sick kick of watching a franchise blow itself to bloody stumps.

It doesn't take a detective to determine it's not the fault of Tyler Perry that 'Alex Cross' is subpar.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
November 10, 2012
The film is crammed with inevitable (and admittedly enjoyable) cop-vs-psycho cliches, yet the proficient, pacy direction by veteran action specialist Rob Cohen keeps the fights, carplay and chases moving at a nifty, time-killing clip.

Alex Cross wasn't conceived as spoof, but such poorly written and executed dross is laughable.
Andrew L. Urban
Urban Cinefile
November 3, 2012
The screenplay and direction deliver several scenes that are unintentionally funny, being either too leaden or too ridiculous
Louise Keller

November 3, 2012
Unsure whether it aspires to be a police procedural, an action thriller, a revenge drama or a buddy movie, Alex Cross is a mess of a film, devoid of tension
Blake Howard

Alex Cross is clumsily directed, poorly acted, and shoddily scripted to the point that with the right crowd you may find yourself laughing at the all the things wrong with it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

So many other things are wrong with the wretched 'Alex Cross' that Perry's somnambulistic performance doesn't even crack the top five.
