The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Based on the very suc­cess­ful James Pat­ter­son books and the char­ac­ter por­trayed by Mor­gan Free­man with great success in pre­vi­ous adap­ta­tions Kis­s­the Girls and AlongCameaSpi­der, ex­pec­ta­tions for Alex­Cross were high. And, un­for­tu­nately, while the orig­i­nal story may be good, the tragedy here is that it just doesn’t work. Tyler Perry plays the psy­chol­o­gist-turned-de­tec­tive this time around while Matthew Fox buffs up as his se­rial killer ad­ver­sary. While they both put in de­cent per­for­mances, the plot plays out too fast to fol­low or to build any real ten­sion. ★★ Ex­tras: Deleted scenes ★★
