Alex Cross

Rated M.

There’s no reason why adapting the James Patterson book character Alex Cross for the big screen might be difficult – but the latest film about the gifted police psychologist disappoints in a spectacular fashion. With one of the year’s worst scripts, this clunky film sees Alex trying to catch a killer called Picasso. Writer/ director/actor Tyler Perry is out of his depth in the lead role, and while Matthew Fox has found his way since Lost, playing the killer, this film isn’t going anywhere.

Rating: 1.5/5
