'Alex Cross'

After Morgan Freeman's two turns as James Patterson's psychology-driven police detective, Tyler Perry - in a rare-for-him situation as an actor for hire, without also writing and directing - has the title role in this grim melodrama.

Cross mulls a big career move as he pursues a Detroit serial killer (Matthew Fox, "Lost") in a script that's run-of-the-mill, though the performances are good. That's ensured by a cast that also includes Edward Burns, John C. McGinley, Cicely Tyson, Jean Reno and Giancarlo Esposito. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by director Rob Cohen; deleted scenes. ** (PG-13: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
