MOVIE REVIEW:The Bone Collector
Auhtor:

   

I am really surprised about how this film is getting so many bad
reviews. I thought that The Bone Collector was a great thriller with
plenty of nerve racking suspense that is guaranteed to have you on the
edge of your seat. The acting is good and the methods of murder that
the killer uses in this film are creative and interesting. The Bone
Collecter may not be the best thriller of the nineties but it
definitely is one of them. Partly because of its classic and smart
ending and its creative and originally good plot that involves a young
female cop who is trying to catch a serial killer, using the help of
paraplegic cop Lincholn Rhyme.

What I admire most about The Bone Collector is the way in which it is
so original. It does not steal ideas from other movies and everything
in The Bone Collector is totally original and scary. What The Bone
Collector could use though is a little bit of a better ending. In the
ending, some of the things that happen appear to be really stupid. But
it still has a decent ending despite some of the things that happen in
it.

The acting in The Bone Collector is good, but not great. Apart from the
brilliant performance from Leland Orser. Although he only appears in
two scenes, he still does really well.

Overall, The Bone Collector does not reach the brilliance of some other
1990's thriller films like Seven, Pulp Fiction and The Sixth Sense. But
it still is definitely a great film that it worth watching.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A young and talented cop gets involved into a series of brutal
murderers and is given the chance to support a brilliant veteran but
bedridden detective to solve the case. Sounds promising yet
you-heard-that-before- like. And so the movie starts with ex-model
Amelia Donaghy (Angelina Jolie), working as a cop since her father got
murdered (not quite unfamiliar movie hero cop background, eh?) being
called to a routine job during her regular morning hot-dog breakfast
with a teammate just two find a corpse hidden under grit in an old
railway station. Bravely stopping a train to save evidence and using
creativity at capturing it she gets laughed at by the typical asshole
idiot boss but greatly praised by a famous since successful but after
his last case for years lamed (except for head and one index finger)
and tired of life detective that sees an upcoming talent in her.

As the movie goes on though, the stereotypes and the "pity-seeking" as
I call it get worse while the case gets more interesting, including the
woman having trouble to work with a corpse and #beware of heavy
SPOILER# the future victims (it's always a hunt to try to rescue the
victims before they get killed -> evidence = hints) you can actually
sympathize with being the ones that get saved.#SPOILER end# The end
includes a nice little twist but is partly predictable as well.

A promising basic story with a (in my eyes) way too dramatic
surrounding add up to a 6,5 for me, so I'll rate it a 6 with room for
improvement.
