I've not read any of the Alex Cross books so I can't say whether this is a good adaptation or not but I have seen the two other Alex Cross films and I think I liked them, it's hard to tell as my older reviews are crap but there is just as much to like as there is to dislike. I'm ...

"Alex Cross should have stayed in the books. Well, at least this time around. I've seen the other movies (Kiss the Girls being a fav). The movie felt like a made for T.V. flick. I thought Matthew Fox did a pretty good job at playing crazy. Freaked me out a little. But the ...

As a fan of the original Alex Cross movies (Kiss the Girls & Along Came a Spider) I was both excited and hesitant for this new incarnation. It got terrible reviews and left the theater very quickly before I could see it. After taking it in on DVD I must say that it isn't at all a...

Fox is one of those classic movie serial killers with a ridiculously toned physique, creepy tattoos and a fondness for quoting Confucius. He doesn't do things by halves either. When we first meet him he's taking part in a cage fight just to get the attention of the girlfriend of ...

Miscasting is one of the major problems with this film. Tyler Perry was the wrong choice to play Alex Cross. He is no Morgan Freeman. They should have casted someone like Terrence Howard or Jeffrey Wright. They would have been awesome in the role. Perry seems out of place in this...

A heady Cross for moviegoers to bear, this latest James Patterson adaptation just kisses the franchise goodbye. Along came a spider to the franchise and his name is Tyler Perry. A multi-hyphenate used to having his name placed possessively before the title, he gets owned here by ...
