Secret in Their Eyes Reviews and Ratings
This Hollywood remake of an Argentinian Oscar-winning film comes loaded with expectations. Sluggish pace and some contrived plot points dilute the unsettling moments, like when Jess enters an elevator to see the man accused of murdering her daughter walking free. Secret In Their Eyes does not meet expectations, and, unlike the characters that are unable to forget, the film is disappointingly forgettable.
The strong performances by the leads notwithstanding, the Hollywood remake doesn’t quite capture the complexity and thrills of the original. The narrative confusingly cuts back and forth between the past and the present as in the Argentinean film, but the chemistry between the police officer and the lawyer are missing from the English-language version.
