Review of Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector

 I have to say that I loved the Denzel Washington & Angelina Jolie movie, The Bone Collector that was based on the book by Jeffrey Deaver so when I heard that they'd made a television series I just had to watch it!

Lincoln Rhyme was Denzel's character in the movie and in the television series he is played by Russell Hornsby.   We see in the first episode how he became a quadriplegic and we also meet Amelia, the NYPD officer who is to become his eyes and ears.   Like the character in the movie played by Angelina Jolie, Amelia (played by Arielle Kebbel) stops a train to save the evidence.

The storyline isn't exactly the same as the movie which means that both the fans of The Bone Collector and people who have never seen it before can enjoy this series.

As well as hunting for the serial killer known as The Bone Collector, the team headed by Lincoln also delves into other cases such as the kidnapping of a politician's daughter and another serial killer who has perfected the perfect murder ..... until he came into Lincoln's orbit that is.

If you love the thrill of vicariously trying to catch a serial killer while solving other crimes and being on the edge of your seat as members of 'your team' are put in danger then you will love this series.

There's only one problem with this series, they decided to cancel it after one season so my tip is to stop watching it about five minutes before the end of the final episode.   Otherwise, you'll be like me and forever be asking a question that was left as a cliffhanger.

Not only do I 100% recommend watching this series if you haven't seen the movie yet - check it out!  My husband and I are thinking of re-watching it since we've finished this series (which we did over two days - it's definitely binge-worthy!).

We watched the series on one of the free to air channels here in Australia, but I was thrilled to find that it's also available to watch on Amazon Prime.   I really do enjoy having Amazon Prime, we get to watch great shows and I also get to read some great books and that's just two of the perks!

  1. Oh this sounds interesting I love a good mystery/thriller series. I don't watch a lot of TV, but when there is something that will keep my interest then I will make some time for it. Thanks Lou for the recommendation.

  3. I was watching the Bone Collector series on TV cable last year and somehow missed the final episode. I planned to watch it on the On Demand feature of my cable system where you can watch/rewatch past episodes and somehow it never came up. I never got to see the ending and did not know they left it as a cliff hanger. Wow. I really liked the acting and the interplay between Russell Hornsby and Brooke Lyons as they played out their characters. Good review, Louanne.

  5. I really appreciate this review and you heads up to stop watching before the final episode ends. I would hate being left in suspense, knowing there would never be a season 2. I don't think I have even seen the movie. Both the movie and the series sound like awesome choices.

  6. I also appreciate these kind of reviews, because as you know, many of us are looking for shows to watch in the evening - and I despise the trial-and-error approach and prefer review recommendations! This sounds quite good, but I think it's more inline with my mother's taste. I'll let her know about it.
