The movie was shot partly in Akron. Reviews, including mine, were not good; it has 13 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, the lowest rating there for any movie with Tyler Perry. It took in $25 millon in ticket sales, according to Box Office Mojo, less than its modest production costs and a new low for a Perry-starring movie. Anyway, the official word:
Don't miss Tyler Perry in a "role like we have never seen him" (BOXOFFICE) when Alex Cross arrives on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and UV), DVD (plus Digital Copy and UV), Digital Download, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View on February 5 from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.

Based on the novel "Cross" by James Patterson and popularized by Morgan Freeman in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, Tyler Perry takes over as Dr. Alex Cross, a homicide detective/psychologist with the Detroit Police Department. Cross meets his match in a dangerous serial killer (Fox). The two face off in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, but when the mission gets personal, Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits. With a screenplay by Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson; the film is directed by Rob Cohen.
The pulse-pounding crime thriller is from the director of The Fast and the Furious and arrives on Blu-ray Disc and DVD packed with bonus materials including a director's commentary, deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
