"Cross" is a novel by the author James Patterson. It is a crime thriller starring Tyler Perry as Dr. Alex Cross, a psychiatrist and police lieutenant who lives in Detroit with his wife, Maria (Carmen Ejogo). They have two children, Damon and Janelle and live altogether with their grandmother, (Cicely Tyson).

When Cross learns that his wife is pregnant, he considers a job in the FBI which means a move to Washington D.C., but is hesitant to bring it up to his wife as he is afraid of her reaction.

Meanwhile, Picasso, as he is called, (Matthew Fox) flirts with a woman and she takes him to her bedroom and he sedates her, tortures her and ultimately kills her. The Police Captain, Richard Brookwell (John C. McGinley) calls Cross and his partner, Tommy Kane (Ed Burns) to the crime scene. Cross and Kane figures out that Picasso is a professional assassin and has other people on his hit list, so they must stop him NOW.

The film was shot in Cleveland and Akron, Ohio as well as Detroit, Michigan. I recognize the scenes from Detroit such as the Compuware Building, Detroit Police Department Central Division and the Michigan Theatre garage.

After Picasso kills Cross' wife, its time for justice. He goes after Picasso with a vengeance.

Rob Cohen directed this movie while Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson wrote the screenplay adaptation. Steve Bosci, Remington Chase, George Furla, Stepan Martirosyan, Jeff Rice and Ethan Smith served as executive producers of the film. Additional scenes were shot in Bali, Indonesia and Akron, Ohio.

Lots of violence and action in this movie. However, I thought it was relatively worthwhile.

OVERALL RATING: B
