Synopsis


Secret in Their Eyes
A former Los Angeles DA inspector (Chiwetel Ejiofor) spends 13 years hunting the killer who raped and murdered the teen daughter of his colleague (Julia Roberts). But when he finds the culprit and the district attorney (Nicole Kidman) refuses to reopen the case, he is forced to pursue justice on his own, which ultimately leads to a shocking discovery. This English-language remake of Juan José Campanella's 2009 Argentinian film of the same name was written and directed by Billy Ray. ~ Tim Holland, Rovi

    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.

    This movie probably would appear pretty good unless you've seen the original. I implore you to buy the first film by Juan Jose Campanella 2009 best foreign film. It will floor you. this American version lacks the great love story the original had, to me there was no love romance between Nicole Kidman and Ejiofor. Nothing there.

    I was a little wary after reading several reviews that this was a lackluster feature especially with the high power Hollywood stars in this movie. That being said me myself I did enjoy the film and was pleasantly surprised by it. I've actually ordered the original foreign film this movie was based off of so that I can compare the two.

    The acting is amazing but followed the original too closely and didn't give any new life to the story. Extremely slow paced and it did not help the movie in the slightest bit. Slow burn films are great when there is a payoff for it (To Die For, Copycat, Philadelphia to name a few). Had all the power to be better than it was.

    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.

    a good cast rises this unnecessary remake. the original movie won the academy award for best foreign film. while it cannot really be compared to the Argentina effort, it is a good effort and does generate a good amount of suspense. but the movie exceeds because of its excellent cast.

    This movie had the cast, but it was convoluted, disjointed, and frankly not entertaining. It was a waste of a good cast, and these actors should want their name pulled from this film. It was hard to follow, and after a while, I could care less if the real killer was found.

    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.
