This wasn't unlike any other serial killer, mystery movie I have seen, but the stellar cast made it stand out slightly. Ashley Judd was a joy to watch as usual and Morgan Freeman played his usual, Morgan Freeman type role. There was a good amount of suspense and plenty of guessing to do but at times some parts seemed a bit dragged out and it went on just a little to long. There were plenty of moments where the characters did dumb things that got them into worse situations and the ending, while satisfying, could of been done much better. The shocking reveal of the killer at the end was nice and overall this was a decent film, great cast but it could of used a little something extra to make it "really" good.

Great Movie Washington, D.C.detective and forensic psychologistAlex Cross (Morgan Freeman) heads to Durham, North Carolina when his niece Naomi (Gina Ravera), a college student, is reported missing. He learns from the local police, including Nick Ruskin (Cary Elwes), that Naomi is the latest in a series of young women who have vanished. Soon after his arrival, one of the missing women is found dead, bound to a tree in a desolate forest, and shortly after that, intern Kate McTiernan (Ashley Judd) is kidnapped from her home.When she awakens from a drugged state, Kate discovers that she is being held captive by a masked man calling himself Casanova, and she is one of several prisoners trapped in his lair. She manages to escape and is severely injured when she jumps from a cliff and into a river to escape from his clutches. After she recuperates, she joins forces with Cross to track down her sadomasochist captor, who Cross concludes is a collector, not a killer, unless his victims fail to follow his rules. This means there is time to rescue the other imprisoned women, just as long as they remain subservient.

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.

"Kiss the Girls" is the first entry in the Alex Cross series, and the best one so far. But that's not saying much, with lackluster entries like "Along Came a Spider" and Tyler Perry's "Alex Cross" abomination. This movie has some build up, not too many implausible moments, and great performances by Judd and Freeman. It's not cinematic art, but it's a good watch for a Friday night in the summer.

I've actually never seen this movie and I really liked it. Suspenseful which I like.

Directed by Gary Fleder (Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead (1995), Don't Say A Word (2001) and Runaway Jury (2003)) and adapted from James Patterson's 1995 best-selling novel of the same name, this dark crime thriller was the first film to be based on Patterson's Alex Cross series of novels, and it was intended to start a new franchise, it nearly did. It has some good performances in it, and a good mystery too. Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) is a forensic psychologist and detective working for Washington D.C. police, and he's been called in to investigate the disappearance of his niece Naomi (Gina Ravera) in Durham, North Carolina. Cross is briefed by local policeman Nick Ruskin (Cary Elwes), and learns that Naomi is the latest in a series of kidnappings where young women have vanished. Things take a turn when police intern Kate McTiernan (Ashley Judd) is kidnapped, and she's held in a cellar. However, she manages to escape from her captor and Cross takes her in promising to protect her. It takes them to Los Angeles, where they find someone committing similar kidnappings. It is a taut and unsettling thriller, even though it was all done before with The Silence of the Lambs (1991), it makes for a good crime mystery if you like that sort of thing. Freeman returned for a sequel, Along Came A Spider (2001), before the franchise was rebooted with Alex Cross (2012).

Kiss the girls brings out the acting artistry of Ashley Judd. Her works here is riveting, showing both range and depth. It is a pity that she has less movie roles these days. Morgan Freeman is doing Morgan Freeman so there is nothing to review. It does not drag and it does not have unnecessary dialogue. Whoever likes serial killer thrillers will certainly find Kiss the girl delightful.

Great movie. Very suspenseful, very well-written, and incredibly well-acted by Judd and Elwes, and great acting from Freeman.

Such an amazing and freaking scary thriller. I loved every single detail about this movie. It has no flaws; perfect acting, and perfect story. So scary and intense you will not be able to move.

I found this to be an effective thriller due to the underrated performance of Judd. She is so good here in my opinion. And of course Freeman so smooth and determined to catch the criminal as always. A surprise ending completes what is an effective thriller. Not perfect but good performances and a twist.

Kiss the Girls is like the one friend you had in high school you thought was good looking but just not attractive enough to date. The movie doesn't do anything terribly wrong, but it doesn't do anything incredibly impressive either. Kiss the Girls is a somewhat enjoyable yet predictable movie with a "made for TV" quality screenplay. Overall shallow performances by normally great actors whose characters respond preposterously to a mostly unbelievable plot. Morgan Freeman is the film's redemption. James Patterson's book comes to life, but Patterson's book wasn't that great anyway. Rent it, don't buy it.

Decent thriller/murder mystery which does have a bit of a surprise ending. Freeman(one of my favs.) and Judd carry the film above mediocrity.

A fairly standard, but serviceable, thriller with great performances by Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd, and a pretty good twist to boot. Too bad they give most of the supporting characters short shrift.
