Cross and Jezzie get on the Washington, DC Metro at Union Station, but the station shown does not resemble the DC area metro system. When the train is shown coming out of the tunnel, it is a different train type than that used on the metro, and has a red-and-blue "MTA" logo on the front instead of the Metro's brown "M" logo - it is in actuality the Baltimore subway.

The book is not closed. A mind game with a profiler.
A terrific movie. Suspense, thrills and a plot that twists and turns. Detective Alex Cross(Morgan Freeman),on sick leave recovering from the lose of his partner, is called back into action when the daughter of Senator Rose(Michael Moriarty) is kidnapped from her private school. Cross is an expert profiler and is very successful in tracking down elusive criminals.
Michael Wincott plays the savvy kidnapper. Also in the cast are: Monica Potter, Mika Boorem and Dylan Baker. Penelope Ann Miller is the Senator's wife. Very tense mood throughout with Freeman strong and steady. Probably the best acting is turned in by easy on the eye Ms. Potter.
The kidnapper has the detective hurrying to keep pace in the race to save the little girl's life. A surprising twist makes for a very satisfying finale. This thriller is just that.
