Detective/psychologist Alex Cross loses his partner in an out of control 'bust.' He stops working and cannot forgive himself. 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
The kidnapper tells Cross to run from the Watergate to 6th and Pennsylvania Avenue in 14 minutes, a distance of 2.1 miles. Then the kidnapper instructs him to double-back to 12th and Madison in 12 minutes (another .6 miles). The pay phone at 12th and Madison does not exist, that address is in the middle of the National Mall. The kidnapper then instructs Cross to get to Union Station in 4 minutes which is another 1.5 miles. First, that last leg of the run is ridiculous. Secondly, that is a total of 4.2 miles of running 30 minutes-not a bad workout in a full suit, trench coat, and dress shoes. See more »
Tonight was your first night at the club, wasn't it?
No. I've been there a few times before.
Really? Well, how come I haven't seen you?
I noticed you the first night I walked in. You always stand out.

The book is not closed. A mind game with a profiler.
A terrific movie. Suspense, thrills and a plot that twists and turns. Detective Alex Cross(Morgan Freeman),on sick leave recovering from the lose of his partner, is called back into action when the daughter of Senator Rose(Michael Moriarty) is kidnapped from her private school. Cross is an expert profiler and is very successful in tracking down elusive criminals.
Michael Wincott plays the savvy kidnapper. Also in the cast are: Monica Potter, Mika Boorem and Dylan Baker. Penelope Ann Miller is the Senator's wife. Very tense mood throughout with Freeman strong and steady. Probably the best acting is turned in by easy on the eye Ms. Potter.
The kidnapper has the detective hurrying to keep pace in the race to save the little girl's life. A surprising twist makes for a very satisfying finale. This thriller is just that.
