ALONG CAME A SPIDER (2001) ** ½

Morgan Freeman returns as detective Alex Cross, from Kiss the Girls in another adaptation of a James Patterson novel.  Freeman teams up with a cute cop (Monica Potter) to find a criminal (Michael Wincott) who has kidnapped a senator’s daughter.  The pacing drags a bit, but Freeman is excellent and the twist ending actually manages to surprise.  It’s about on par, if not better than the original.  Director Lee Tamahori did Die Another Day next.
