Storyline Heading
Cross is through playing mind games with criminals, that is until a methodical predator, Gary Soneji commits a daring kidnapping and lures Cross into the case. Soneji's not out for ransom, he wants some thing much bigger, a place in the history books. His every move is planned with the precision of a spider spinning his web, and Cross and Secret Service agent Jezzie Flannigan are in a race against time to stop him.

DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Thriller - If you enjoyed Kiss the Girls, perhaps you will enjoy this prequel to that mystery-thriller. However, those expecting thrills will be let down by this very slow film. Violent content makes this film inappropriate for young children, who would be bored, anyway.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
The role of Dr. Alex Cross, taken from the pages of James Patterson's best selling novels, is an ideal film series character for Morgan Freeman. A brilliant, if slightly world-weary, criminal profiler and detective, Cross is a perfect match for the air of intelligence and dignity that has become the Oscar-nominated actor's stock in trade. Such a shame, then, that this character and Freeman's formidable talent are trapped in Patterson's preposterous potboiler plots--first in the modest 1997 hit Kiss the Girls and now in the prequel Along Came a Spider. The film not only fails capitalize on the ample room for improvement left by the lackluster predecessor, but sinks the fledgling franchise to new depths--and quite possibly past the point of no return.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Some VERY high opinions from nearly everyone. Some teens didn't care that much for it, but some gave it high marks. The few moviegoers who didn't give it high marks, didn't rate it too low. So, even if you don't love this movie, it's unlikely you will feel it was a total loss. Nearly everyone would recommend it to their friends, which says a lot. The comments were that they liked all the plot twists and unpredictability. For these reasons, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE!

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
A good "pure" detective movie. I use "pure" because the story doesn't wander off into any other sub plots. It has some nice plot twists. Also, it doesn't totally follow the book. I would recommend "Along Came a Spider" to anyone that enjoys detective movies. Actually I feel most moviegoers will enjoy it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

The death of his partner causes Detective Cross to retreat to the peace of retirement. Renowned as an accomplished police detective, psychologist and best-selling author, Cross reluctantly gets involved in a federal case when the kidnapper leaves a piece of evidence in his mailbox.

Familiar with Cross' literary success, the kidnapper, Gary Soneji (Michael Wincott), is theorized to have an ulterior motive: to be documented by Cross after committing the crime of the century. The detec tive (Morgan Freeman) and Secret Service agent (Monica Potter) create a formidable team following a path of few leads, hidden agendas, and an exhausting ransom drop, while also seeking their own redemption from past failures.
