    This film is AMAZING! **** who say it is not have some sort of problem! It is funny, exciting and very interesting! The acting is amazing and the storyline is fantastic! Morgan Freeman is a true gem, along with the excellent Monica Potter, Michael Wincott and Mika Boorem! Go watch this movie in the cinema and then buy it on DVD because this is one that you will want to watch over and over!

    This is a fine, fine film with a fine, fine cast and when you look back from it, Along Came a Spider is one for the ages with a mix of comedy, action and that feeling when you just do not know who to trust!

    Not very good. It is extremely implausible, the suspense falls flat, and the story is not that interesting. Luckily, they managed to snag Morgan Freeman for this one, which makes it alright, since he did a great job. Left a lot to be desired.

    Great movie! Although it kind of seems like a stereotypical kidnappiing movie. Morgan Freeman does a great job bein a badass haha. Great plot twists as well. Definetly should watch

    Despite fair acting, Along Came a Spider is a web of imperfections.
    With likable characters portrayed by Freeman and Potter, Along Came a Spider begins well, but slowly looses its suspense factor do to the faultiness of the script.

  1. There's not much here for a great actor to sink his teeth into once, let alone twice.
  2. Relentlessly bland.

    If Michael Wincott -- who under normal circumstances can chill your blood just by breathing -- can't make the villain compelling, you know the movie's in trouble.
