Secret in Their Eyes 1Secret in Their Eyes is a remake of an Argentine movie about a team tight-knit investigator who is torn apart when they discover that the daughter of Jess one of the investigator is brutally murdered. They were staking a mosque with the hope of uncovering a terrorist plot when a body is found in a dumpster which turns out to be the daughter of Jess.

After more than a decade of obsessively searching for the killer, Ray uncovers a new lead that would finally resolve and bring a closure to the case. However the team is not prepared to deal with the secret that would reveal the effects of vengeance to them. Secret in Their Eyes 2

With a cast of stellar talents, the movie is not bad but not great either. The plot has lots of twists but it is easy to follow however the pacing is very slow specially the first half of the movie. Julia Roberts did a good job as Jess but Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor has no chemistry together, Nicole Kidman is a bit too uptight as their supervisor. Julia Roberts is not the sexy character in Pretty Woman but an ordinary character bare of make-up and looks decades older but she is a top caliber actress in this movie.

Although the pacing is slow Secret in Their Eyes is a “talking-movie” with a good plot and a great and surprise ending. This may not be your kind of movie if you are into summer blockbuster movies with lots of action and explosions.

It stars Julia Roberts as Jess, Nicole Kidman as Claire, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Ray, Alfred Molina as Martin Morales; directed by Billie Ray which also co-wrote the movie with Eduardo Sacheri.

    This is a remake of an Argentinian movie which I also saw, the remake is very well made.

    Julia Roberts reçoit un Oscar pour sa performance dans “Secret dans leurs yeux.” Vous allez la voir comme vous ne l’avez jamais vu auparavant. Ceci est un mystère bien écrit chargé de suspense et une fin très choquant.

    Julia Roberts has not been making blockbuster movies and doesn’t need to, she is a huge and major star and she can afford to make small but memorable movies not the popcorn movies of summer.

    Parfois, une bonne histoire et un bon casting et un script décent tout simplement ne pas tirer sur un superbe film, mais dans le cas de Dans ses yeux, il est décent. Je dirai ceci, l’homme le maquillage des gens ont réussi à faire de Julie Roberts joli chaleureuse, tandis que pimenter Nicole Kidman de retour pour vous. Ce drame policier roule assez bien et a quelques rebondissements fraîches dans la fin qui les rendent le film plus alors peut-être qu’il devrait être. Je dirais attraper sur dvd ou le théâtre pas cher au lieu du prix plein.

    Julia Roberts is one fine actress even without makeup, did a good job in this movie.

    It has a stellar cast with good plot but it very slow to the point of being boring. Ending is unexpected.

    Surprisingly good, wasn’t my first choice but kept you guessing. Julia Roberts is excellent and Nicole Kidman is average. Good plot and good ending, I didn’t see the ending coming.

    I really liked this movie. Some parts were a little slow but all in all this was a good thriller.Chiwetel Ejiofor is great and he is incredible! I am for one tired of seeing Julia Roberts and not into seeing all the movies she is in because I feel that Erin Brockavich was overrated, but this movie is Oscar Worthy of her performance. She is incredible in this picture and every bit as good as actress as the greats. Way to go Julia

    I am a big fan of Julia Roberts, but I think she did an Oscar level performance. I thought the film was well crafted, good script and directing. My only complaint was that it was a little slow and dragged specially the first half of the movie.
