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.
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.
Morgan Freeman brings his top-notch class to this brilliant thriller. Recommended.
Decent enough thriller.
Nothing off the charts.
I recently bought myself the Alex Cross box set, I've really oversold this, it was the two Morgan Freeman DVD's with a bit of cardboard wrapped around it. Turns out I got the two films completely the wrong way round, I thought I has seen 'Along Came a Spider' and not this one, but the further into 'Kiss the Girls' I watched the more of the story I started to remember, not much about the plot but the women trapped in a castle like maze seem to stick in my mind, funny that.
This is a genre of film I tend to like, so I'm a little surprised I haven't picked up a James Patterson book, and after catching up…
A decent thriller with a very predictable twist. Feels alot like a poor man's "Silence of the Lambs", but still pretty entertaining.
Freeman is solid as always and Ashley Judd brings some good energy. The rest of the supporting cast is standard boring 90's crime cast, at least in the way they act. It's got some good scenes here and there but overall it's only slightly better than your standard serial killer thriller.
It wasn't too bad. It was pretty interesting.
Love a good serial killer story. And this one has Morgan Freeman!
more in the vein of COPYCAT than SE7EN, but still some fun thanks to agood technical aspects than a great story...
good acting from morgan freeman, ashley judd, and cary elwes (the latter of whom sported a heinous fake southern accent, but we forgive him). well directed, well shot; overall a decent production.
Wundervoll düsterer Thriller mit Morgan Freeman, hat auch nach fast 20 Jahren nichts von seiner Magie verloren. Man könnte ihn fast als kleinen Bruder von "Sieben" bezeichnen auch wenn David Fincher da vermutlich etwas gegen hätte, aber ernsthaft ein überraschend dichter Thriller mit glaubhaften Darstellern und einer gut erzählten Geschichte.
I like it that a Black man can run around half-naked, while waving a gun, in a fancy hotel, in the American South. And no one bats an eye.
I VAGUELY REMEMBERED LEIGH WHANNELL MENTION ON THE SAW COMMENTARY THAT CARY ELWES WAS A BAD GUY IN THIS BUT THE ENTIRE TIME I THOUGHT I WAS WRONG AND I DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE AND I STILL FEEL SO BETRAYED
I'm very tired these days.
