The film is almost unrecognizable from the novel on which it's based, aside from the main characters Alex Cross, Soneji, and Jezzie, all of whom mostly resemble their novel counterparts in name only. It is almost a brand new story. See more »
In one of the news broadcasts Megan is described as twelve years old, weighing fifty two pounds and measuring three feet and five inches tall. She is clearly much taller than this and almost certainly weighs more. Those measurements would be about right for an average six or seven year old girl. 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.

I've been reading some of the comments for this movie, and think that many of you are over-critical. This is a psychological thriller, and plays it's part well. Morgan Freeman is one of my favourite actors, and he plays Detective Alex Cross very well. I enjoyed the movie on a thriller type basis. If you want to be critical about it not living up to the book's legend then fine... cause I'll be the first one to tell you that it's barely anything like the book. "Along Came a Spider" was a wonderful book and the character of Gary Soneji was compared to a spider... if anyone was wondering why the title was called that. I'm not one to bash movies unless they are horrible, and for those of you that think this movie is horrible... thats just your call. This movie is good, its just not the book. *** out of *****
