Angelia Jolie is interesting as the inexperienced cop forced into what she is meant to do: forensic investigation. There's the usual friction at first that turns to admiration between the two. With Denzel's help, she investigates a series of murders related to the original body she found. The type of murders was very chilling and will make one …
