Along Came a SpiderDirector: James Patterson
Cast: James Patterson
Morgan Freeman returns as forensic psychologist Dr. Alex Cross in this thriller based on the novel by James Patterson (whose work also formed the basis of the hit Kiss the Girls). Gary Soneji (Michael Wincott) is a brilliant but remorseless psychopath who has landed a teaching position at an exclusive private school in Washington, D.C. Using his extensive knowledge of kidnapping (he's taught a class on Charles Lindbergh), Soneji abducts one of his students - Megan (Mika Boorem), whose father Hank Rose (Michael Moriarty) is a United States senator. Ollie MacArthur (Dylan Baker), the detective investigating the case, has strong words for Jezzie Flannigan (Monica Potter), the Secret Service agent who mistakenly let Megan slip through her fingers. But when the kidnapper contacts Dr. Cross, the psychologist is brought in on the case, and Cross seeks out Flannigan, who he believes might have a valuable insight into the case. Soon, Cross and Flannigan come to the terrible realization that this crime only represents the tip of the iceberg for the ruthless Soneji. Along Came a Spider also features Penelope Ann Miller, Jay O. Sanders, and Kim Hawthorne.

This movie is so good, 1.5 hrs in, I thought only 20 minutes went by! This movie is full of suspense, and it is perfect for a fan of James Patterson's books or a crime nut.
I have to agree with you there...Michael Wincott was the best in this movie!...I don't think he gets as much attention as he should. The only reason I watched it was because he was in it...and i loved it.
"Along Came a Spider", starring Morgan Freeman and Monica Potter, is definetley an entertaining movie. I mean, it's got action, suspense, and all the other good stuff. However, "Along Came a Spider"'s plot, created by Marc Moss, based VERY LOOSELY on the James Patterson novel, is just that; loose. There are a million plot holes, filled in moderatley by sub-par acting, mostly filled with great direction from Lee Tamahori.
This movie is great.It will surprise you at the end.Michael Wincott does a great job acting,as well as the rest of the cast,but I especially like Michael Wincott.
