I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Kiss the Girls
Smart Girls. Pretty Girls. Missing Girls.
Forensic psychologist Alex Cross travels to North Carolina and teams with escaped kidnap victim Kate McTiernan to hunt down "Casanova," a serial killer who abducts strong-willed women and forces them to submit to his demands. The trail leads to Los Angeles, where the duo discovers that the psychopath may not be working alone.
Morgan Freeman brings his top-notch class to this brilliant thriller. Recommended.
Alex Cross is on the case again, this time on the trail of his abducted niece. He will be forced out of his comfort zone and into the stomping grounds of a sick killer as he traverses the country on the hunt for answers.
Morgan Freeman is pretty damn good as Alex Cross, bringing his calm demeanor to the detective/doctor's leather jacket. Freeman is complimented by a serviceable performance from Ashley Judd, who looks pretty damn good, considering it's been over 15 years since this movie was made.
Given I'd seen this before, I wanted to pay special attention to see if the script/direction telegraphs its late twist, and it seemed it did every chance it got. I'd love to see Freeman's Alex Cross meet up with Tyler Perry's Alex Cross in an Alex Cross time travel film in which solving the murder requires Alex Cross to "Cross" the "streams" and possibly destroy the space-time continuum.
amazing book and the film did ok, book is better
James Patterson's Alex Cross books have always been a decent read. I was intrigued to see what Gary Fleder would make of good source material and just how Morgan Freeman would bring forensic psychologist Cross to life.
Freeman's Cross is a clever and methodical thinker. Thinking outside of the box with a keen criminal mind, he adds a touch of class to a movie that chills and thrills in equal measure. A serial rapist and abductor who "collects" young women is on Cross's radar after his niece is kidnapped. Featuring a strong cast that includes Brian Cox, Cary Elwes,Jeremy Piven and the gorgeous Ashley Judd this has a creep factor with serial killers and escalating fetishists to make your skin…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Cary's character being evil and the bad one worked in my favor I wish I could put him in my pocket and squeeze that squeezable ass of his to my hearts content and then some you-know-what-i-mean some ;)
I would do him over-over-over-over and over again if I could, but I can't but all I can do is dream and i'll get over it oh and It makes me wish I was Ashley Judd during the climax scene as well.
I came acros this movie on tv and realised again that the James Patterson novel(s) is/are so much better. Although first class actors, the film lacks the intense suspense which you'll find reading the original book.
Police hunting for a serial killer are helped when a victim manages to escape for the first time.
Suspenseful serial killer mystery with a ridiculously twisted plot.
A decent thriller with a measured performance from Morgan Freeman as the Doctor/Detective Alex Cross.
It's let down by a silly ending but up until then, it's engaging.
Daugiau patiko nei nepatiko.
well this is a fucking creepy film, and it doesn't make it any better that cary elwes plays a fucking weird psycho who is attractive as heck
but other than that it's great.
It's a paint by color thriller that runs a little long, but Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman do a great job carrying the film.

Freeman and Judd elevate a straight forward murder mystery. This is a hour and 40 minute episode of Law & Order, but with an Oscar winner in the lead. I liked a lot of the films color pallet of darkness and overcast clouds. A serial collector has abducted multiple woman, one of them being Alex Cross' niece. So the Washington D.C. Cop must go to NC to find the man and bring him to justice. A good watch on a Tuesday night.
I don't know why I watched this. some primal urge to torture myself, I suppose. not as torturous as it could have been.
Judd's commited performance is the one element that saves this mundane thriller from immediate oblivion.
