... If you’re looking for a competent action movie, don’t go see “Alex
Cross”. However, if you’re looking for a movie that is amazing in a
totally shitty way, one where you can bask in 101 minutes of ceaseless,
utter absurdity, then this film can be a decent amount of fun (though it
may be best seen through heavy beer goggles, and with a large group of
likeminded fools). “Alex Cross” is the kind of movie that could have
used a sniper rifle, but chooses a handheld rocket launcher instead.
There is not an ounce of subtlety, no precision at all, and it is as
plain as a kick in the nuts. ...
... Things just happen in “Alex Cross”, and everything that takes place does
so on the most surface level possible. Everything about this movie
screams direct-to-video, and if Tyler Perry weren’t the star, this would
be a minor blip on the home market, and probably feature a professional
wrestler. If you absolutely must watch “Alex Cross”, do yourself a favor and get drunk first.
