Along Came A Spider
Three stars. Solid and enjoyable.
Renowned detective Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) is on leave of absence following the death of his partner. He is drawn out of seclusion and into the heart of a child abduction case when the kidnapper singles him out as the only one who can appreciate his cleverness. This is a satisfyingly twisty thriller that doesn't try to overstretch itself. It doesn't aim for angst and psychological depth: all it wants to do is entertain, and it does so quite nicely.
