Product Description

Amazon.ca

Released in late 1999, The Bone Collector was originally promoted as a thriller in the tradition of The Silence of the Lambs and Seven, suggesting that it would earn a place among those earlier, better films. Nice try, but no cigar. The Bone Collector settles instead for mere competence and the modest rewards of a well-handled formula. With a terrific cast at his service, director Phillip Noyce (Dead Calm, Patriot Games) turns the pulpy indulgence of Jeffery Deaver's novel into a slick potboiler that is grisly fun only if you don't pick it apart.

Noyce expertly builds palpable tension around a series of gruesome murders that lead us into the darkest nooks of New York City. Now a bedridden quadriplegic prone to life-threatening seizures and suicidal depression, forensics detective Lincoln Rhyme (Denzel Washington) gets a new lease on life with a sharp young beat cop (Angelina Jolie) who's a wizard at analyzing crime scenes. She does field work while he deciphers clues from his high-tech Manhattan loft, and as they narrow the search their lives are increasingly endangered. As this formulaic plot grows moldy, Noyce resorts to narrative shortcuts, using perfunctory scenes to manipulate the viewer and taking morbid pleasure in his revelation of the murder scenes. And yet it all works, to a point, and the cast (including Queen Latifah and Luiz Guzmán) is much better than the material. If you're looking for a few good thrills, The Bone Collector is a pretty safe bet. --Jeff Shannon

3.0 out of 5 stars A great film for a rainy night at home May 31 2003
By w.brown
Format:DVD
You've read previous reviews with plot synopsis so I won't bore you further. The 16x9 film transfer and DTS audio track are really very good on this dvd. It's a very well crafted mood piece which will transport you back and forth from modern day NYC to a more primitive and creepy New York of the early 1900s. On occasion it takes on the feel of a Sherlock Holmes mystery. A classic it is not. A really good mystery movie it is. Very well acted, it deserves a good look and possibly a place in your collection. Did I say it has a really good DTS soundtrack?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Chilling, Above Average Suspense Thriller July 19 2004
Format:DVD
"The Bone Collector," based on Jeffrey Deaver's best-selling novel, is a gothic suspense thriller that takes the viewer below the streets of New York City, to places dark and chilling, where an evil serial killer does his dirty deeds. Creepy!!
Police detective Lincoln Rhyme, (Denzel Washington is wonderful in this role - but isn't he always?), is considered to be THE genius of forensic science. His books on the subject are mandatory study at the Police Academy. During an investigation, four years before, Rhyme was involved in a terrible on-the-job accident which left him a quadriplegic and bedridden. Attached to life sustaining machines, he is only able to move one finger and his head and neck. He is subject to seizures that threaten to leave him a vegetable. A very angry man, he is bored and, at times, suicidal. Still an official member of the force, his former colleagues visit him constantly and involve him in difficult cases. A new, troubling case forces them to seek his help, yet again.
Rookie cop, Amelia Donaghy (Angelina Jolie), works with the city's troubled youth. By chance she discovers the half-buried body of a powerful New York City businessman, near a railroad track. She, almost intuitively, knows what to do to protect the forensic evidence. Sending a witness off to buy a disposable camera, she takes photos of the crime scene before a rainstorm can wash away the evidence. She then, single-handedly, stops a train to preserve valuable clues. Rhyme decides she has natural forensic talent and demands she be placed on the case. So she reluctantly joins his team. Donaghy does the leg work, connected by a headset to Rhyme, while he instructs her. The two puzzle over clues and work the case from his bedside. And the leg work is brutally grim.

A must see for Jeffrey Deaver (the author) fans. Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie do a great job. Read the book too for the complete experience.

"The Bone Collector" is a good but somewhat predictable thriller that has the good fortune of a good casting director. Don't get me wrong about this movie, it is good, it just isn't one of those super thrillers that catches the imagination which is somewhat evidenced by a fair to midland run in the theaters and on the DVD racks. One major note of caution when watching this thriller; if you're a videophile such as myself and can easily match voices with faces, watching the trailer for this movie will easily give away the killer and somewhat spoil the movie.
Denzel Washington, as usual, performs brilliantly in this film as he does in most films he stars in. I think that when I purchased and watched this particular movie some time ago that it had been the first film that I'd watched that had the ever beautiful and alluring Angelina Jolie in it. I hate to admit it but at that time and upon a second viewing now, her performance in this film is somewhat lackluster which, having watched several of her other movies, is somewhat disappointing, but then again, the role she's taken for this film may have had a lot to do with her performance as her character is a somewhat subdued character in the first place.
Director Phillip Noyce may best be known for such films as "Clear and Present Danger," "The Saint" and "Patriot Games" over this particular film but I would note that he most likely did the best with this film that he could considering the overall predictability of the script.

Format:DVD
you should love this top notch thriller.Angelina Jolie and Denzel
Washington are the headliners and are in fine form,but the supporting
cast is also superb.this thriller(Like Copycat)has elements of Silence
of the Lambs and Seven but,like Copy cat,it is its own movie.the
suspense and tension are through the roof on this one.it's also very
disturbing.it didn't unnerve me as much as Copycat,but it's pretty
close.this one also has some twists,and again some may figure things
out quickly,but i still thought they were good twists.if you like
Silence,Seven,or Copycat,you should like this one.i would give this a
perfect ten,but like i said,it didn't quite unnerve me as much as
Copycat,which i gave a perfect 5/5.for me,The Bone Collector is a 4.9/5

Why does almost every film about a serial killer, made after Silence Of The Lambs, have to be compared to it? I can't think of one example where that turned out to be true. Read more
