Three popular thriller movies starring Morgan Freeman. In 'Kiss the Girls' (1997), when his niece disappears, forensic psychologist Alex Cross (Freeman) travels to Washington, where he learns from detective Nick Ruskin (Cary Elwes) that she is one of eight women to have been kidnapped by a mystery man who calls himself 'Casanova'. When one of the women, Dr Kate McTiernan (Ashley Judd), manages to escape from Casanova's lair, her attempts to help Cross track him down are hindered by the fact that she has been injected with an amnesia-inducing drug. In 'Along Came a Spider' (2000), Freeman reprises his role as Detective Alex Cross in the follow-up to 'Kiss the Girls'. This time Cross is investigating the kidnapping of a senator's daughter from an exclusive school in Washington DC. Assisted by secret-service agent Jezzie Flannigan (Monica Potter), he works out that the kidnapper's real target was another pupil at the same school, the son of the Russian president. Then, after narrowly averting a second attempt to grab the boy, Cross begins to wonder if there isn't somebody else involved, somebody who is more in control of events than the kidnapper himself. Finally, in 'The Sum of All Fears' (2002), America's security community is on edge. The Russian premier has just died and been replaced by President Zorkin (Richard Marner), a man whose international ambitions are something of an unknown quantity. Fortunately, seasoned CIA agent Jack Ryan (Ben Affleck) is on hand to profile the man in the hot seat. But then the USA's worst fear comes true when Baltimore is struck by a nuclear device during a football game. Ryan's boss Cabot (Freeman) is convinced this isn't really a Russian strike and dispatches Ryan to uncover the truth before the USA and Russian Federation slide into World War III. A shadowy terrorist group might just hold the key.
