Watching “Along Came A Spider” from 2001, it’s remarkable how far tech and the internet have come in the last 17 years. Bulky PC towers and tube monitors, archaic browsers and pre-Google search engines – such a far cry from the smart phones that rule the roost today! It really wasn’t all that long ago. And speaking of phones, the ubiquitous pay phones shown in the movie are almost nowhere to be found today.
The movie? Overall it’s a pretty good thriller, but it’s also so far fetched how Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) solves the case it winds up being less than plausible. Still, if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth a look.
