    • Item : The Bone Collector (R, 1999) movie Location: by: Famous

      This is the one movie that Denzel Washington is in, where he’s not actively chasing the bad guy. He’s lying in a hospital bed in his own apartment as an invalid. I thought it was a bum rap, that the main character in the film has to be cooped up in bed


      for the whole film.

      Denzel is the type of actor who can pull that off, without it seeming too unbelievable. But there was something about the chemistry between Angelina Jolie and Washington that I found “false”.

      It’s as if the director would have the audience believe that they had this instant connection. I just wasn’t buying it.

      And ...


      • even though the plot was interesting, I felt that the investigation wasn’t involved enough to warrant a movie such as this. And by the time you find out who the killer is, you’re not really interested because he hasn’t been seen much in the movie to begin with.

        It was essentially a mystery without a real mystery. I also felt that

        other elements of the film were out of place.

        For instance, we see Jolie’s character as a committment-phobe. But even that scene (with her “boyfriend”) doesn’t seem authentic.

        I felt that these elements were added haphazardly. At any rate, this is a thriller that didn’t really thrill.

        Truly, this was a movie that could have been shown on television.
