Phillip Noyce creates an effectively shadowy, decrepit Gotham.

Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie muster enough electricity to make The Bone Collector a watchable thriller.

Jolie, while always delicious to look at, is simply and woefully miscast.

Washington is, as usual, simply marvelous.

The Bone Collector is another one of those unpleasant serial-killer movies.

There is nothing remotely believable about this drawn-out cat-and-mouse game of a movie.

Another borderline-absurd scenario.

From the well-placed and effectively used fake-out scares to the finely oiled secondary stock characters, from the charismatic lead characters to the creepy visuals, the film hits all its marks smoothly.

Noyce has the skill to keep the plot percolating and overcome its occasional missteps.

The film never really gathers suspense and tension.

The film's impact is dulled by the lack of emotional investment in the villain.

The long-delayed revelation of whodunit is a debit instead of a payoff.

The assumption that the premise would make a better-than - average thriller was wrong.

Assembled from off-the-shelf thriller contrivances, likable characters and utter absurdity, with one of those scores that's the musical equivalent of trying to scrape the burnt meat off the bottom of the pot.

Although the material is utterly conventional, the film does have a lot going for it.

The Bone Collector never comes close to the moral chill of Seven or even the step-by-step fascination generated by any number of HBO true-crime shows.
