Sufficient mystery-drama thanks to Morgan Freeman playing the fictitious detective Alex Cross and the ever reliable Michael Wincott as the sinister kidnapper. There’s one two many twists in the last half, but that’s expected for these kinds of thrillers.

All these crime thrillers start to run together after awhile. Even though Morgan Freeman brings his usual talent along, there just isn't enough to differentiate this from similar films to make it that memorable. If you've seen one, you've seen them all.

he plot starts out in a very straight-forward manner: a man with an ambition to become criminal legend kidnaps the daughter of a congressman right out from under the nose of the FBI. He then sends a note and a sneaker of the girl to Detective Alex Cross, hence forcing him out of his self-inflicted isolation, the reasons of which are explained in the opening scene. Along with the FBI agent who was in charge of security at the scene of the crime, he follows the clues laid out by the kidnapper in order to find the girl. Good, suspenseful scenes and endless plot twists make this a true mystery-thriller (especially the ending). Not really loyal to the novel, but still exciting and fun. Wincott plays a terrific villain, and Freeman delivers the goods once again as Alex Cross.
