A green gal in blue, Jolie is a cop with a knack for dissecting crime scenes and a chip on her shoulder the size of Staten Island. She teams with Washington--a bed-ridden forensics specialist--to track down a serial killer with a penchant for grisly surgery. What begins promisingly soon deteriorates into a tepid mish-mash of implausibility. Director Noyce tries to make us believe Jolie's character--with almost no background in crime-scene sleuthing other than her police-academy classes--can suddenly take over a leading, high-profile case just because Washington's character likes her gumption.
Without realistic insight into their relationship or developed backstories, the movie becomes a series of scenes in which Jolie searches dark places with a flashlight while a parade of stock characters march by. Save your hard-earned bones.
