Trivia

There are references in the novel "Cross" to both Morgan Freeman and Tyler Perry. The reference to Freeman may be homage to his role as Alex Cross in Kiss the Girls (1997) and Along Came a Spider (2001). See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the film, when two cars collide, Alex Cross' airbag inflates. He then cuts the airbag away in order to leave his car. Airbags immediately deflates after initial inflation, so there would be no need to cut it away. See more »

Good, but still way below Morgan Freeman standards.
3 November 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La) – See all my reviews

I just got through seeing Alex Cross. It was a good enough movie to pay the $5.75 matinée price. The movie had decent action scenes, which is totally out of the norm for Tyler Perry, that kept me entertained. The acting in this movie was pretty good and Tyler Perry himself did do a pretty good job with his part especially being that this is his first action roll. But with all that being said I still can see why Morgan Freeman turned the roll down. This movie was kind of predictable. I was telling my wife what was going to happen in the movie and I hadn't seen this movie before hand, done any research on this movie nor have I heard anyone talking about pieces of the movie. Now I've seen some of Tyler Perry's movies and those ones I have seen is what keeps me from watching his other movies, but this one, although he didn't make this one, is better than anything else he played in. Except Why Did I Get Married. So If you're not doing anything on a Sunday afternoon and want to see a little action and a little suspense it's O.K. to go and see this one.
