The Bone Collector (1999)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
After an accident in a tunnel, a forensics expert is left as a quadriplegic who is able only to move his head and one finger. Setting his finger to a computer, he is able to manipulate his environment with the help of a loving nurse. Even so, fearing seizures that could leave him a vegetable, he plans his "transition" with the help of a hesitational doctor friend. That all changes when he is confronted with clues from a serial killer that obviously are pointed to forensics investigation. The case clearly re-invokes his interest in life. A sharp, young cop's quick thinking saves the first crime scene. Recognizing her talent for forensics, he brings her unwillingly into forensics detection. Through radio contact, she becomes his eyes and legs on the scene. Michael Rooker also appears as the police captain, who has bungled earlier killings by the serial killer and is more interested in the press than in good police work. Ed O'Neill and Luis Guzman are support staff who aid Washington and run interference with Rooker.
Two cops on the trail of a brutal killer. They must see as one, they must act as one, they must think as one, before the next victim falls.

- Serial killer vs. forensic genius
- Amelia: What, you think that because of your condition you have the right to boss people around? I'm sorry, but that is truly pathetic. Rhyme: Truly? Amelia: Damn right, truly.
Rhyme: Do you know who I am? Amelia: I read your manual at the academy. Rhyme: Yeah? What did you think of it? Amelia: I'm not a book critic, sir.
Paulie: If you were any more wound up you'd be a timex.
Lincoln Rhyme: Destiny is what we make it
Richard Thompson: [ranting] I gave you so many clues and you failed... you fucking failed.
- Director Cameo: [Phillip Noyce] a man browsing through books in the bookstore that Angelina Jolie enters.
Christopher Crowe worked on rewrites of the script.
In Jeffery Deaver's novel Angelina Jolie's character Amelia Donaghy was named Amelia Sachs. The filmmakers changed it because it "sounded a lot like 'sex'".
In Jeffery Deaver's novel Queen Latifah's character Thelma was actually a man named Thom.
When Amelia jumps into the river to rescue the old man and his grand daughter, she was actually jumping into a heated pool. A vegetable dye was added to give the water its appearance.
