The Bone Collector

Corrected entry: After the scene where Amelia has found the old man and the young girl in the water, Amelia is looking at the next item of evidence and describing it to Rhyme (Denzel) on her mobile phone. Then the stupid cop who has taken over the case from Rhyme arrives and grabs the phone from Amelia. While he is talking on that phone, Amelia runs off and explores the abandoned subway station. Somehow she has got a mobile phone again to resume her interaction with Rhyme.

Correction: Detective Chaney takes the large format police radio from Amelia to talk to Rhyme, not her mobile phone. She resumes communication with Rhyme from her phone as she proceeds to walk the crime scene in the subway station.

Corrected entry: When Amelia picks up the phone when she is half asleep and the person hangs up on her she puts the phone back down but not on the receiver.A few moments later the phone is back on the hook and rings.

Correction: No one hangs up on her when shes picks up the phone. She hangs up on them and then places the phone off the reciever.

Factual error: At the end, Denzel Washington's character has a Grand Mal Seizure. But he is supposed to have a spinal cord injury. He can still have seizures in that the electrical impulses in his brain go haywire, but if he has a spinal cord injury that prevents him from moving, the seizure action in his brain wouldn't translate to his body jerking and shaking.

New this month Suggested correction: You can still have involuntary muscle movement with a spinal cord injury...so if it was a seizure (it wasn't) his muscle could twitch (likely not as much as his did though).

Suggested correction: It isn't a Grand Mal seizure, he's faking an attack of autonomic dysreflexia. (It still wouldn't cause his extremities to shake, he would still only be able to move his head and shoulders).

Lincoln Rhyme: Whatever happened to your father doesn't mean it's gonna happen to you. You're a great cop. You'd make a terrific detective. It's a gift. Don't throw it away.

Trivia: The movie makers really wanted the audience to believe that Michael Rooker was the killer, rather than Leland Orser. So much so that Rooker actually played the killer in almost all the scenes where the killer wears a mask. When you see the eyes of the killer through the mask the eyes are Rooker's.
