Audience Reviews for Kiss The Girls

  • Aug 18, 2014
    Full of intrigue, Kiss the Girls is a smart and suspenseful crime thriller. Based on a James Patterson novel, the story follows forensic specialist Dr. Alex Cross as he investigates the disappearance of his niece and comes to discover that she's become a victim of the serial killer known as "Casanova." Starring Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Cary Elwes, and Brian Cox, the cast is fairly strong (though Judd is a weak link that stands out a bit). There are also some underdeveloped elements of the plot that make it seem a bit contrived at times. However, the directing is well-done and does a good job at creating an atmospheric setting. Additionally, the film is able to be disturbing and violent without becoming morbid and gratuitous. Kiss the Girls isn't without its problems, but it still delivers a compelling mystery.

    It wasn't an awful film altogether, but it wasn't exactly a crime thriller. Sure, it had all the elements of the original novel, but it truly lacked the true to form Alex Cross, the propiety of serial killers, or suspense. Maybe it's just me, but it felt a tad stilted.

    A good, entertaining film. It's way too creepy and disturbing at some points, but Morgan Freeman's awesomeness helps to make up for this. Honestly, Along Came a Spider, this film's sequel, is noticeably better in composition.

    Kiss The Girls is based on the best-selling novel by James Patterson. This is an excellent edge-of-your-seat thriller and Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd gave dazzling performances as Alex Cross and Kate McTiernan. Freeman gets involved in a search for a man who calls himself Casanova. He snatches beautiful and accomplished young women, whom he keeps drugged and imprisoned as his concubines including Freeman's niece. Many of his unfortunate victims who do not comply to his sadistic demands end up being tortured...and killed. Judd is also equally good as a victim of Casanova's who escapes his evil clutches. Highly Recommended.
