The Bone Collector Reviews

Page 3 of 5
January 1, 2000
Although the material is utterly conventional, the film does have a lot going for it.
January 1, 2000
You've got a film that leaves you with a sick feeling in your stomach. And it has nothing to do with all the severed bones and fingers you've had to digest.
January 1, 2000
Jolie here emerges as a bland, practically sexless ingenue.
January 1, 2000
Another borderline-absurd scenario.
January 1, 2000
The material is crude, sado-porn slop, and not even a gem talent like Washington (or a rising one like Jolie) can make it smell much better.
January 1, 2000
Weak ending.
January 1, 2000
The film assumes the characteristics of a bad slasher movie.

January 1, 2000
The assumption that the premise would make a better-than - average thriller was wrong.
January 1, 2000
The killer - whose identity is so tangential to the plot he might as well be the butler.

January 1, 2000
Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie muster enough electricity to make The Bone Collector a watchable thriller.
January 1, 2000
The film's impact is dulled by the lack of emotional investment in the villain.
January 1, 2000
The Bone Collector blows its budget on helicopters, fleets of cop cars, gory effects and the charisma of Denzel Washington to bring this pointless hackwork to theaters.
January 1, 2000
Noyce resorts to desperate scare-movie cliches that will disappoint even the easily-frightened.
January 1, 2000
If you want to watch a wheelchair-bound man solve a murder, rent Rear Window.
January 1, 2000
The script by Jeremy Iacone leaves too many questions unanswered.
January 1, 2000
Jolie, while always delicious to look at, is simply and woefully miscast.
January 1, 2000
Entertaining but never fully engrossing.
January 1, 2000
Denzel is great as always, but the movie around him seems to be on the slippery slope to rental hell.

January 1, 2000
Denzel Washington is always a watchable actor, even when it's only his face we're watching.

January 1, 2000
Strictly cut-and-paste filmmaking, and it doesn't even do a respectable job at that, either.
