About Alex Cross
An action thriller that details the origins of homicide detective and psychiatrist Alex Cross before he became the wise, world-weary sage portrayed by Morgan Freeman in Kiss The Girls and Along Came A Spider. Here he is played by Tyler Perry, a man with questionable facial hair. Cross meets the first real nemesis for his brilliant analytical mind in the psychotic killer known as Picasso (Matthew Fox). Picasso likes to torture his victims and leaves sketches of their bodies at the crime scene but as the movie's imaginative tagline warns, 'Don't Ever Cross Alex Cross.' Soon Cross tries to get inside Picasso's head so that he can track him down, but he must also consider the effects of his dangerous career on his wife (Carmen Ejogo) and family.
