Along Came a Spider

A senatorís daughter is kidnapped and Alex Cross, detective, investigates after being the first person contacted by the kidnapper, for reasons he ignores.

One of the teachers at the girlís private school is suspected. He would have planned his actions during a full year. He invested this time at the school to avoid being suspected of the crime.

The agent who was supposed to protect the victim joins Alex to obtain forgiveness for her moment of inattention. Together, they want to capture the criminal who possesses a plan much more complex than it may seem.





This sequel is presented with beauty, without pretentiousness. By its title, it is impossible to tell that it follows Kiss the Girls. They are equivalent on many aspects. The events in its predecessor arenít mentioned; for some this might be a subtle detail but for me, it made all the difference.

Alex possesses experience, wisdom, charm and intelligence. In fact, he has little or no weaknesses. This becomes all the more obvious in Along Came a Spider and becomes a problem. He rarely is wrong and when it is the case, he quickly realizes it and rectifies the situation. This type of personality can sometimes become annoying but some viewers might enjoy what it brings to the movie.

Here, a child is at stake. Furthermore, as with most movies, the child doesnít have to worry about much. I will not ruin the film but I will still mention that the girl successfully (and easily) escapes twice. In addition, another child flees an ambassadorís house, his fatherís, regardless of the surveillance work performed by dozens of guards. These details harm the film by pulling you away from the illusion of terror and realism that it had previously plunged you into.
