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.

Yes, outside of a dress, Tyler Perry is a powerful screen presence.

Standard procedural that is worth seeing for Matthew Fox's amazing transformation.

Matthew Fox is sick, deranged, and absolutely outstanding. Think of Alex Cross like popcorn entertainment with extra butter that you didn't ask for, but you'll appreciate in the meantime.

There is one bit of casting that pushes Alex Cross into watchable territory, and that's Matthew Fox in full-out-insane mode as the serial killer nicknamed Picasso.

Tyler Perry, who made his considerable fortune in drag as Madea, was wise to embrace a film that pulled no punches and shows he can be a bad ass on screen.

Slick, fast-paced and mindlessly entertaining despite many contrived and awkward moments. It takes a while to get used to Tyler Perry in a non-Madea role.

Matthew Fox is terrifying and awesome while Perry proves he cannot act, especially in emotional close-ups. I did like the phantasmagoric story

There's just enough genuine emotion to connect us with the characters, whether we watch Perry as the quietly dogged Cross or Edward Burns as his lifelong friend and investigative partner.

You can get better mysteries any night on TV, but the performers are worth checking out.

Thanks to a game cast, taut action scenes and a surprising dose of raw emotion, Alex Cross finally gets the movie that he deserves.

Slipping out of his comfort zones for a bit as both Madea and director of his own movies, Tyler Perry tries on a new persona for size in Alex Cross as, well, Morgan Freeman. Sort of.

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.
