Alex Cross

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

Tyler Perry makes a go at being a conventional action-hero in this reprisal of Morgan Freeman’s role in previous film adaptations of James Patterson’s novels. A murderer, known as Picasso (Matthew Fox), is killing people and leaving Cubist-style drawings at the scenes of his crimes. He appears to have his sights set on a multi-national industrialist (Jean Reno). But not if Alex Cross (Perry) has anything to say about it. Revenge is game here, and while Perry does OK, the film just isn’t very interesting.
