Slightly Above Average Despite Some Credibility Problems

Crime story-wise, this was nothing extraordinary but was a pretty solid film. He isn't always like this, but Morgan Freeman does best in films where he's the likable hero-cop. He is definitely that in this film although his character, Alex Cross, is a little too sharp for believability. There were just a bit too many "oh, come on's" said by me watching this as Cross would get computer passwords with no trouble, etc. The odds of that happening are millions-to-one but not in the world of films. There were other examples, too, of him figuring out things that were almost impossible.

For a tough modern-day crime story this film, for the most part, was pretty low- key with low profanity and not a lot of gore or overdone action. That was surprising considering the sordid subject matter. The tameness in here, and Freeman, make this a notch (albeit a small one) above the average thriller.

If in doubt...

I like this sequel to Kiss The Girls, but the script maybe a little weak. Morgan Freeman has done better things in his hugely successful career, but performs to his usual high standard.

Monica Potter is a glamorous woman, her beauty taking precedence over her strong character portrayal. She seems a quiet lady, but Jezzie Flanagan's personality might be misleading, and could hide an angry and deeply hurt conscience, while the revengeful side to Michael Wincott works exceedingly well, such was his performance in the film Metro, and he convinces thoroughly.

A thriller like Along Came A Spider does its best to keep the viewer interested, with tautly directed scenes and strong acting. Even so, this movie is not the best ever made, and may leave you wondering what the point was in making it in the first place.

If you do watch Along Came A Spider, stick with it and enjoy what it offers - I certainly did. 7/10

Worth 1 1/2 Hours of your time

Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) is back on the trail of a kidnapper, and this time he's accompanied by a secret service agent (Monica Potter) Together they must try to save a young girl from the clutches of a brilliant criminal (Michael Wincott).

Along came a Spider does turn out to be a decent thriller, with plenty of action, suspense and ample plot twists, but on the down side it still isn't as good as 'Kiss the Girls'

Morgan Freeman puts in a typically solid performance and the support cast are all good enough, however the storyline does become a little disjointed at times, and it contains some minor plot holes that distract from the overall effect of the movie. That said i would be lying if said i didn't enjoy it, and i would still recommend it as worthwhile viewing; it will satisfy your thirst for a thriller for a short while at least.

7/10 Not the greatest, but certainly not the worst.
