Director: Rob Cohen
Starring: Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox

Forensic psychologist Alex Cross returns to the big screen after a 10 year absence, in the 3rd crime thriller based on a novel by James Patterson. Detroit is at the mercy of an assassin/serial killer who is known as Picasso because he leaves drawings at the murder scenes.

He is a sadist who enjoys torturing his prey before killing them. Alex Cross is on his trail & comes close to catching him, but owing to past military training Picasso evades capture. When tragedy strikes & a loved one becomes a victim, Cross makes it a personal mission to capture this psychopath, taking on the roles of judge, jury and executioner.

Tyler Perry had an enormous task taking on the role as Alex Cross as he had “big shoes to fill” recreating the role originally played by the popular Morgan Freeman. Matthew Fox last seen in Vantage Point, is frighteningly effective as the assassin, and will doubtlessly remain one of the screens’ most memorable villains for years to come. It was a pleasure seeing Cicely Tyson in the supporting role of Cross’s mother where she played in scenes which required much sensitivity.

An entertaining thriller with a couple of twists at the end, however, nauseatingly shaky camera work resulted in lost enjoyment of many of the action sequences. Amateurish acting from some of the supporting cast and awkward scripting also gave the overall film a “cheapish feel”. This is not an “A” grade movie and it was never destined to be a hit as the first two movies in this franchise were definitely a hard act to follow.
