The film is never less than a guilty pleasure, but it leaves you unsatisfied and hungry for closure.

It's as if Moss has studied every bad cop show on TV since the beginning of the medium, then distilled what he'd heard into this screenplay.

Se puede ver, pero sin buscarle mayor información o profundidad. Simplemente para pasar el rato.

In terms of plotting, it's hardly breaking new ground, but spare a thought nonetheless for Morgan Freeman.

Along Came a Spider is a popcorn flick, a modest and entertaining thriller.

Sinks the fledgling franchise to new depths--and quite possibly past the point of no return.

It is Lee Tamahori's taut pacing -- not to mention Neil Travis' exceptional editing -- that gives the film its one-two punch.

certainly competent as a suspense thriller, but it never achieves any level beyond that

...so little makes sense and so much is left up to speculation that there isn't even an urge to get involved...

Aside from Cross and Rose, none of the other characters in the film are very interesting.

As with a magic show, you know you are being fooled but you sit back and enjoy the illusion anyway.

The kind of movie with so many suspension of disbelief high hurdles that any police officer, federal agent or audience member with a stitch of common sense would likely snicker all the way through.

A movie that thinks it's pretty smart but is really too dumb to hold together beyond its first few minutes.

There's deception, double-crosses and duplicity in this psycholgical thriler - and it's great to see an actor as classy as Morgan Freeman propelling a franchise like this.

...what surprised me, however is that ACAS knows about the [criminal mastermind] stereotype... and throws us a twist that turns the whole film on its head.

If Alex Cross is so intuitive and brilliant, why is he making a movie like this? It hurts me to see Freeman reduced to this mess.
