ON DEMAND PICKS

ALONG CAME A SPIDER(Comcast Movies and Events) Efficient but pedestrian thriller. It extends the series based on James Patterson’s novels starring Morgan Freeman as D.C. cop Alex Cross, this time in a duel of wits with a kidnapper. Freeman is the only reason for seeing it - he knows how to make the camera come to him, he says more when he isn’t speaking than when he is - but he’s underutilized. (R; runs through July 9)
