The perfect thriller. Nothing too gross to creep you out.

A mediocre widget stamped straight out of the mold of the popular police procedural.

Best advice: Just sit back and watch Freeman anyway. The man's a cinematic treasure.

Efficient, but in the end quite pedestrian.

But even that talent (Freeman) isn't enough to distract you from the general predictability of Spider or the absurdity of its elaborate last-minute plot twists.

A thriller is only as good as its villain is bad, and this is the film's problem.

Mr. Freeman, a superb actor, creates the illusion of drama even when there is none.
