  1. Freeman fills Cross's gumshoes with distinction.
  2. It's a superior film in every way to its predecessor "Kiss the Girls."
  3. Best advice: Just sit back and watch Freeman anyway. The man's a cinematic treasure.

    Alex Cross has been neutered on film, deprived of his sexuality, his family, his friends.

    With the dependably compelling Freeman present, even its worst moments are not unwatchable.

    By the time it hits you, you're worn out by all the dead ends and false trails the movie has put you through.

    Along Came a Spider is a very average entry in the Alex Cross series. While Freeman provides a little wit and poise for the movie, it is hardAlong Came a Spider is a very average entry in the Alex Cross series. While Freeman provides a little wit and poise for the movie, it is hard to overlook the plot holes, non-sensical writing, and overall silliness of even the most basic plot points. Expand
