Synopsis:
He takes his victims` lives and leaves behind mysterious pieces of a bizarre puzzle. And the only person who may be able to make sense of the serial killer`s deranged plan is Lincoln Rhyme (Denzel Washington), a one-time top homicide investigator. After a tragic accident changes his life forever, Rhyme can only watch as other cops bungle the case... until he teams up with a young rookie, Amelia Donaghy (Angelina Jolie), who bravely becomes his eyes and ears and searches out the clues that help them solve the case.

But as the killer senses the cops closing in, Rhyme realizes that he and his partner are on the trail of a vicious, sadistic murderer who will stop at nothing on his deadly mission. At any moment Rhyme and Amelia could become his next targets - and their first case could become their last.

Your Opinions and Comments

7 / 10
Denzel Washington is a great actor, period.
This movie finds him confined to his bed, still his performance is very good.
The story is about two cops who are on the trail of a serial killer who has a bones-fetish. The plot itself is intense and there are quite a few good moments in the movie, but, alas, the character of the villain is left undeveloped. You will probably figure it out prior to its reveling, but no actual clue from the plot should support your assumption - only your gut feeling.
The video transfer is no that amazing. I did manage to notice some grain in several scenes (dark ones, mainly).
The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. Sure, it includes the obvious helicopter scene and ambulance scene, but other than that it`s nothing special. The isolated music track is interesting, but not THAT interesting to listen to separately.
The menus are actually scary. They are well done.
The extras include all the regular extras. The behind the scenes featurette is nice.
Bottom line - a good film with a great acting by Washington.
