Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One of the best films I've seen in years, "Secret in Their Eyes" has a stellar cast, a superb plot line and shock/surprise ending that amazes. I highly recommend this film for adult viewers. It's wonderful to see a beautifully- written script matched with such a talented ensemble cast. The plot builds with moment-by moment intensity, beginning with a call to investigate a local homicide. Within moments, things get intensely personal and the rush is on to find the elusive killer. Director Billy Ray wisely puts the storyline first, which allows each character's "arc" to fully develop, and his or her humanity to be felt deeply by the viewer.
Big name stars can't match the original Latin version of "Secret in their Eyes' which won best foreign film 2009. Good try though. I bought it anyway to make the comparison and I'll watch it again, but if you want to see a great film buy the original starring Ricardo Darin and Soledad Villamll.
I expected more for this movie and I really wanted to like it; I did until the end. They literally pull the rug from under your feet and it does the trick, it's a just predictable- DTS HD MA 5.1 AUDIO is great and picture looks amazing on a 4K UHD Display.
A suspense thriller sort of movie, had a twist at the end though not entirely suspenseful. The acting was okay. Julia had the same crying scene as the Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson. I like that scene that's why I remembered it.
It is definitely worth seeing, but not one that I would watch over and over. Good story, moves along at a snails pace at times. Not much action, expected more based on the description. Still a good movie though.
