A thriller that ended the possibilities for Morgan Freeman as an unlikely star of a great franchise. [Full review in Spanish]

I don't begrudge Freeman his own hero-man franchise, but I wish the movies worked harder to be worthy of him.

I felt like I was kidnapped and forced to watch this drek as punishment.

Enjoyment, or even tolerance, of 'Along Came A Spider' hangs upon a couple of plot twists, which even by Hollywood standards are pretty far-fetched.
December 16, 2002
It's a good-looking, mostly well-acted but preposterously plotted movie.
December 8, 2002
The best I can say is that this was a relatively inoffensive way to pass a couple of hours, but after about a day I'm having trouble remembering any of it already.

October 15, 2002
Director Lee Tamahori and screenwriter Marc Moss treat their star (and his character) with all due respect, and manage to turn out an engrossing, entertaining movie in the process.

October 3, 2002
Freeman, as always, is a still center of dependable calm and intelligence, but Potter registers only as another generic blonde.
September 26, 2002
Even at half speed, Freeman excels: He knows how to whip out his badge at a crime scene and make it seem as if he had been doing it his whole life.
September 25, 2002
A decent (if entirely unmemorable) followup to Kiss the Girls...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

[Lee]Tamahori keeps the pacing lively enough that he doesn't allow the audience time to linger on the many plot implausibilities

August 2, 2002
Is it too much to ask for reasonable explanations of human behavior in a psychological thriller?
June 9, 2002
so hell-bent on surprising us that it's willing to sacrifice just about anything -- logic, credibility, common sense, etc. -- in the hopes of catching the audience off-guard.

There are popcorn movies, and then there are movies like this one, which, by its conclusion, make you want to toss your empty popcorn bag at the screen.

Gives Morgan Freeman a chance to once and for all prove that he could walk through a garbage heap and convince you it smells nice.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 24, 2001
Obviously under the impression that their audience lacks the common sense of a kiwi, the filmmakers present a 1-2-3 punch of inescapably insipid plot twists.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
November 16, 2001
...does little to enhance the reputation of mystery thrillers in general and little to solidify Freeman's claim to importance as a serious actor.
