Not Your Typical Murder Mystery

It was through this awesome film that I became a fan of James Patterson's work. I don't know how I got to being introduced to this movie but I am certainly glad that I did. When I first saw it, I was a wee bit surprised at the interesting plot twist in the end. After watching it for a few more times after that, it didn't surprise me. The book is just as scary and suspenseful and the movie, aside from a few subtle differences, sticks pretty faithful to the book. I would recommend it to anyone, but I would suggest to watch the movie first and then read the book. Morgan Freeman is the perfect image of Alex Cross. I couldn't see anyone else fulfill that role better than him. Ashley Judd is the perfect complement to him as Kate McTiernan. Unlike some typical mystery movies involving kidnapped women, she is not the typical dizzy damsel-in-distress (which drives me nuts) but the direct opposite: a captive who fights free and does battle with the chief villain. When it comes to the on-screen chemistry, Morgan and Ashley click. It isn't like they're doing it just to do it; they do it because that's how their characters are. And then there's Cary Elwes, the man who would later be in a few of the "Saw" movies. He takes on the role of Officer Nick Ruskin and runs with it. When I first saw the movie, I would never have pictured him as a villain. After seeing this a few times and then the "last" of the "Saw" movies (before I even knew that they were making another one), I could see that he was excellent when it came to being the lead villain alongside Tony Goldwyn (who, for all intents and purposes, was nothing more than an angry second banana here), whom most of us knew through his days in "Ghost" as the traitorous best friend. Love it or hate it, this is filled with suspense from top to bottom. If there were ever a replay value for certain movies as with video games, my guess is that the value would be high. My word of advice: don't go into this thinking that you will have what I call a formula mystery movie. You might be pleasantly surprised, I promise.

Somewhat cliché but entertaining 'serial killer' movie

The niece of Washington DC forensic psychologist Alex Cross has gone missing in Durham, North Carolina. It is outside his jurisdiction but he goes down to assist with the investigation. It turns out that she was one of eight young women to go missing in the area. Three of them have turned up dead, including one who was found just after Cross got to the area. The local police think they are dealing with a serial killer but Cross isn't so certain; he believes that they are dealing with a 'collector' he is keeping his victims alive and only killed certain of them because they did something to offend him. Not long afterwards he strikes again, this time kidnapping Kate McTiernan, a young doctor. He drugs her and tells her his 'rules' however she manages to escape. This gives Cross and the police a breakthrough; the drug used on her is traced to a plastic surgeon in California, where it emerges a similar series of disappearances has occurred… is this the work of one man working both coasts or two men competing with or encouraging each other? In the years after 'The Silence of the Lambs' serial killer films became rather popular with each trying to have its own unique twist on the genre. Here the twist is that the villain is a serial kidnapper rather than a serial killer… yes he has killed but that isn't his primary motivation. Like most such films the villain is known by a nickname, this time the self-titled 'Casanova'. The fact that he keeps his victims alive does make a refreshing change and also serves to increase the tension as once a murderer has killed somebody the treat is over. There are some good twists along the way before our protagonists have their inevitable confrontation with the villain. It isn't surprising that Morgan Freeman does an impressive job as Alex Cross; he seems to be good in every film he appears in. He is ably supported by Ashley Judd who gives a spirited performance as Kate McTiernan. The settings add to the atmosphere, notably the location where Casanova keeps his victims; the cellar of a long-gone plantation house deep in a forest. Overall I wouldn't say this is a great film but it is well worth watching if you are a fan of the genre.

Only going to see it once

Kiss the Girls had a heck of a lot going for it. Morgan Freeman, you have to give it a chance. Think about it, has the man ever been young? Yes? No? I've never seen him anything but old, but who cares, I've never really seen him do a bad job either. And now he's the new Leonard Nimoy isn't he? The narrator of absolutely everything. The voice of countless documentaries. Ashley Judd, not exactly a bad actress is she? Sure, in the 90s she may have kinda sorts looked like a clone of Jolie, but she always did a far better job. No matter what the movie she's been solid. Cary Elwes, why isn't he in more movies? He's sort of like a British Errol Flynn, totally fun to watch and a great sense of comedic timing. What was he doing in a movie like this? Who cares, we'll add that to the reasons to9 watch it anyway. And then, in small print, you see the name, you see that name: James Patterson. You almost have to cringe whenever you read it. Ever been on a long flight? You've probably read one of his novels and if you have it's been out of a sick desperation to kill time. James Patterson, yeah, world famous for making the clichéd crime novel. The same clichéd crime novel. Sure, the names change, the crime changes, but in the end it's like the cheap procedurals you watch on TV. Every one you watch is almost exactly like every other one you will and have ever seen. Unfortunately, despite the cast, the James Patterson effect takes hold of "Kiss the Girls" and you walk out of the theater with that irritating sense of deja vu. You've been there before, you've gone to that movie before, and in a few short days this film is going to blend in a confusing mess with all the other films you've seen that were almost exactly like it.
