Rookie cop, Amelia Donaghy reluctantly teams with Lincoln Rhyme – formerly the department's top homicide detective but now paralyzed as a result of a spinal injury – to catch a grisly serial killer dubbed 'The Bone Collector'. The murderer's special signature is to leave tantalizing clues based on the grim remains of his crimes.

Probably my least favorite Denzel move. Nevertheless, both him and Angelina Jolie deliver a better than average performance in an interesting crime thriller. Nothing else to praise here.

Entertaining enough crime-thriller with both Washington and Jolie giving fine performances. Nothing outstanding and the dark mood doesn't always work (did like Craig Armstrong's score which I still listen to on my iPod). The ultimate reveal of the killer was a tad weak but otherwise it was okay. **3.25/5**

**A sinister killer and ominous tone cement The Bone Collector as one of the best crime thrillers of the 90s.** The Bone Collector is one of the best thriller mystery movies out there! This eerie game of cat and mouse captivates its audience with its fast and foreboding pace and incredible performances from Denzel Washington and a young Angelina Jolie. Despite being over 20 years old and the flashy technology showcased as cutting age being very dated, The Bone Collector this thrills to this day thanks to its horrifying kills, surprising twists, and gripping tension. Critics weren't fans, and even user reviews are split, but I have no shame in recommending this dark atmospheric mystery to anyone looking for a creepy crime thriller.
