Planned to detail, it seems like a perfect murder. He is drawn back to work reluctantly when a senator's daughter is kidnapped and the kidnapper seems to want to deal with Alex personally. Written by Lindsay. Crime story-wise, this was nothing extraordinary but was a pretty solid film.
He isn't always like this, but Morgan Freeman does best in films where he's the likable hero-cop. He is definitely that in this film although his character, Alex Cross, is a little too sharp for believability.
There were just a bit too many "oh, come on's" said by me watching this as Cross would get computer passwords with no trouble, etc. The odds of that happening are millions-to-one but not in the world of films.
There were other examples, too, of him figuring out things that were almost impossible. For a tough modern-day crime story this film, for the most part, was pretty low- key with low profanity and not a lot of gore or overdone action.
That was surprising considering the sordid subject matter. The tameness in here, and Freeman, make this a notch albeit a small one above the average thriller. Sign In.
