Might be the best Alex Cross movie
Verified purchase
Kiss The Girls was a psychological crime drama based upon a book of the same name written by James Patterson using one of his favorite characters Alex Cross. It featured Morgan Freeman as Detective Cross and Ashley Judd as Dr. Kate McTiernan. Cross is brought in to investigate a series of mysterious kidnappings that included his niece. Later Dr. McTiernan is kidnapped as well but escapes. Together Cross and McTiernan hunt down the suspect who calls himself Casanova.

The introduction to the movie lays out who Cross and McTiernan are dealing with. Casanova is a psychopath who observes women, kidnaps them, then psychologically tortures them, rapes and kills some of them. Most importantly he’s a collector of women. The viewer gets a close up look at his work when McTiernan is kidnapped and held in a dungeon type setting with many other women.

The movie is a great mix of drama, police procedure, and action. It lays out how bad the villain is. Cross is the expert who sifts through the evidence and sees things others don’t. Then there’s the chase after Casanova. It's all very well done and might be the best adaptation of any of the Alex Cross books.

If you've never watched the movie, read the book first.

I'm a bit amazed to see all of these negative reviews about this movie, especially because I don't know what people expect watching a movie that's over 20 years old. I'll agree that it starts off a bit slow and has some minor errors, but it does get better. It's not a horror movie, it's a crime-thriller based off the James Patterson novel. Unless you've read it, it's going to be a bit difficult keeping up with the plot. I've watched this movie many times in the past, and it's not that terrible. My family had the DVD years ago until it was damaged somehow, so I decided to re-order it for myself. All I can really say is that if you like the author James Patterson, it might be easier to read the book first before you watch it. I think the movie has a great cast, Ashley Judd really got into her character for it. But if you're a heavy critic expecting a perfect movie, then I probably wouldn't recommend it.

Silly Hollywood dreck

FBI agents and high ranking cops allow an unarmed citizen to accompany them on dangerous raids. A trained detective almost gets run down by a car because it never occurs to him to shoot out the tires. A serial killer captures young women and keeps them in a underground basement that looks like something out of a 1930's horror movie. A key clue to finding the bad guy involves handwriting, but nobody bothers to check it out. A stove is leaking from the gas line, but the two people in the room just sit there and breathe it, no problem.
I could go on and on.
Even Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd can't save this loser.

Hollywood Drivel is Right!

I saw this film when it came it and somehow remember it being better than it is. Now I'm thinking - wooden characters, bad acting (sadly, even from Morgan Freeman), and a slow, unsuspenseful, and basically wooden script too. The book is better as some reviewers said but as a woman I'm tired and bored of all these mysoginistic male fantasies turned rape/murder mystery type films. They should at least be well done. BTW, an aside. I'm Indian American as well as female, and I never heard of any recipe for Indian food in all my years, which calls for unpeeled, coarsely cut carrots. Finally, convenient that that carton of milk just happened to be lying around on the counter when Dr. Cross needed it most. Did this so called "Indian" of the beautiful Dr. Kate's require the fat, hairy pieces of carrot to be marinated or basted in room temperature milk? Oh please. Get a director while you're out getting a better script writer and actors!

Great movie!

Some of the critical reviews are hilarious. Someone is literally complaining about carrots being in this movie.

Ignore the people that complain just to complain and enjoy this movie for what it is and what it was meant to be. It was meant to be entertaining and it is. There is enough suspense to keep you going, and although there are a couple of plot holes, it overall is pretty good.

My only real complaint is that it feels like they didn't really get into the details. It felt kind of rushed and under developed.

We all know Hollywood would really struggle to make a movie this decent these days, so this is a refreshing movie to watch.

I guess you had to be there for this one?

I remember this having a lot of buzz when it came out, and after finally catching up with it I can't really say I can see why. Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd do have interesting chemistry, but it wasn't really enough to liven up what seemed to me like a rather dull and generic thriller. Felt almost like a Lifetime movie that somehow got an upgrade to feature film status.

Some other tidbits: if you're at all familiar with 90s actors, the mere presence of one supporting role will give away the entire game for you! Also the kidnapper sounds like Kylo Ren from Star Wars.

sleepy and forgettable
Verified purchase
Another typical crime mystery film with predictable plots. I didn't pay much attention throughout the movie and still ended up understanding what happened. That's not a good sign. There are plenty of other good crime mystery movies out there so I definitely recommend you to skip this one. Some solid acting helped convince me to give this a 2 star, not just 1.

Don't miss out this movie - highly recommended.
Verified purchase
The plot is weaved in an excellent way. Morgan Freeman is at his best. The action is pretty good too.What impresses me the most is the plot with twists. It might sound a bit slow to some people, yet one should not miss every single details of the movie because they are all inter-related. Splendid movie with a great plot and Morgan Freeman's acting.
