YMMV: Alex Cross
  • He Really Can Act: Matthew Fox shows some real impressive acting chops as Picasso.
    • Likewise, Tyler Perry is pretty impressive in the dramatic moments.
  • Narm: The tagline "Don't Cross Alex Cross" is a rather laughable use of the character's name.
  • Nausea Fuel: Picasso's first victim had all her fingers cut off and she could feel it all without reacting.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Giancarlo Esposito's (Breaking Bad and Revolution) quick scene as Daramus Holiday the father of a teenager about to be convicted for murder
  • Squick: Alex using the first victim's severed thumb to open her safe.
    • All of Picasso's killings and tortures count.
  • Tear Jerker: Alex's wife getting killed by Picasso and especially the scene where he tries to comfort his daughter over her mother's death, relating it to his own father's death, which makes it even sadder
  • What The Hell, Casting Agency?: Many people raised an eye brow when it was announced that Tyler Perry would be playing Alex Cross, though some critics did praise his acting.
