The Bone Collector

( 16 )

Overview

Although many critics regarded Phillip Noyce's gloomy serial killer movie as too formulaic, it was nevertheless an interesting post-Seven entry in the genre, and showcased the talents of two of Hollywood's most popular actors, Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. If anything, Universal's DVD edition is better than the actual film, offering high audio-visual quality and a good selection of extra features.

Overview

Although many critics regarded Phillip Noyce's gloomy serial killer movie as too formulaic, it was nevertheless an interesting post-Seven entry in the genre, and showcased the talents of two of Hollywood's most popular actors, Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. If anything, Universal's DVD edition is better than the actual film, offering high audio-visual quality and a good selection of extra features. Although it is easy to take anamorphic widescreen picture and Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound for granted, with a film such as The Bone Collector the advantages are palpable. Noyce's stylishly grim visuals are given real depth and clarity, and the darkly atmospheric score is exquisitely delivered. The additional features, accessed via a truly disturbing menu selection screen, include the original theatrical trailer for the film. There are also filmographies of the main protagonists, DVD-ROM features, and the welcome addition of an isolated soundtrack. The 22-minute behind-the-scenes featurette is better than most, actually bothering to get some interesting and extensive contributions from the talent involved in The Bone Collector. Probably the best feature on this disc is Noyce's audio commentary. Although he modestly describes them as "rambling recollections," Noyce's observations are consistently well judged and informative. Whatever The Bone Collector's failures, this DVD edition is excellent, and perhaps even demands a positive reassessment of the film itself.

    A reviewer

    A good movie. No real interesting plot twists. Straight Foward...follow the clues, find the killer. Sort of cliche...rookie cop and experienced cop combine forces, argue, support each other. Recommended, not AMAZING

    Superb!!

    My mom recommended this movie to me, she has it on VHS which I borrowed from her. Both have watched this movie several times as if we had just seen it for the first time. I think the actors & actresses need a standing ovation for their outstanding performance. I definitely would pass this one on to any who enjoys a superb suspense movie.

    Good, But not Great

    I would give this movie The Bone Collector by, Philip Noyce a rating of three and a half stars. A few negative aspects of this movie is, like the book it is way to common and you cant really get that good of a feel of what the characters are thinking or really feeling. A few Positive aspects about the movie is that you can literally see what¿s happening and you watch it all at once instead of having to go back and reread if you are lost at all. If I were to recommend this movie to someone I would recommend it to anyone who likes murder, action, mystery, and common movie.
