good story that doesn't fully deliver in the end
7 March 2007 | by Special-K88See all my reviews

Detective Alex Cross is an experienced, astute forensic psychologist. He's brought in to aid in the investigation of a slippery criminal mastermind with a track record for abducting young women who are both beautiful and talented. The case becomes personal for Cross when one of the women abducted is his niece, and he enlists the aid of local doctor and former victim Kate McTiernan (Judd) who escaped from the same perpetrator and is the only living person who can identify him. Stylish, atmospheric, well-crafted thriller has a story that holds your interest, with some effective twists and strong performances from Freeman and Judd, but it all builds to a climax that doesn't quite payoff. Still, a respectable showing for all those involved.
