The Bone Collector

Director:Phillip Noyce
Writer:Jeremy Iacone
Universal Pictures; R; 118 minutes
Cast:Denzel Washington, Angelina Jolie, Queen Latifah

In the vein of Seven comes The Bone Collector, a grisly serial murderer flick starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. Lincoln Rhyme (Washington) is an expert forensics detective now confined to a wheelchair. He's using lots of hi-tech equipment and Amelia Donaghy (Jolie) to track down a killer who leaves obtuse clues near his victims.

Yucky in parts, The Bone Collector serves up macabre cliches frozen with a hasty plot. Crime/mystery movies should be twisty and suspenseful. They should not tread with heavy, plodding feet. Only partially redemptive is eminently watchable Washington's enticing relationship with equally watchable Jolie.
