Perry plays a detective who is torn between justice and personal vengeance in the movie Alex Cross. When a wealthy and well-connected woman is found dead in her mansion Cross and his team is assigned to the case. They soon find themselves playing a cat and mouse game with a man that remains unidentifiable. After his wife is killed by the same mystery man, the case becomes a personal obsession for Cross.
