There are tons of fascinating movies in Mystery category that were released in 2015 but we are sure that Secret in Their Eyes is one of the best of them! Thanks to mainstream America’s huffy dismissal of subtitles when it comes to cinema, we continue with another unnecessary remake of a foreign film, Secret in Their Eyes, an English language, celebrity studded face-lift of Argentinean Juan Jose Campanella’s 2009 title (which won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film that year). Screenwriter Billy Ray, after snagging his own Oscar nod in 2014 for penning Captain Philips, makes his third directorial effort here, following 2007’s Breach and 2003’s Shattered Glass.
An energetic team of promising special investigators meet in Los Angeles in 2002, including Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his partner Jess (Julia Roberts). Nicole Kidman plays the world’s most fashionable DA, and she exudes a certain brittle, old Hollywood aura in her role. Now you should just watch all stuff that take place and wait for you to be examined in the action and there are absolutely no doubts that you would not ever regret about this choice or some other things like that. Newcomer Claire (Nicole Kidman) causes a stir in their office and Ray seems attracted to the emotionally unavailable beauty.
Much ado was made over the Roberts’ character gender switch (man in the first film) to accommodate the interested actress. She’s beautiful, but ultimately never quite believable—kind of like seeing Lana Turner play a war journalist in Another Time, Another Place (1958). Felix Monti’s notable cinematography, including a swooping, unforgettable aerial shot through a sports stadium.

But the result is a glossy, Hollywood reworking which never feels better than a subpar rehash of something much greater. While their team focuses on anti-terrorist measures investigating a local mosque, the body of a young woman is discovered in a dumpster near their subject of interest. But she’s ultimately the weakest of the troubled trio, charged with bearing the greatest emotional trauma on the shortest character arc, and the result never feels less than a great exaggeration.
She does share likeable chemistry with Chiwetel Ejiofor, and it would be interesting to see these two performers together again in less stilted climes.
DoP Danny Moder (husband of Roberts) attempts to recreate this magic with a sequence at Dodger Stadium, but the result doesn’t manage the same sense of wonder, only highlighting the film’s tendency to feel like a lifeless copycat.
We do not intend to infringe any legitimate intellectual right, artistic rights or copyright. Such well-known actors like Eileen Fogarty, Alfred Molina are acting here and their acting is nice.
To be fair, Campanella’s original has its own set of problems, with the director’s flair for television apparent in how he burns through an exaggerated murder mystery not unlike a delicious telenovela (and it’s important to note the Academy somehow deigned the film more worthy of an Oscar than fellow nominees A Prophet and the Palme d’Or winning The White Ribbon). The woman is the daughter of Jess, and her brutal murder twists all three of these investigators in different ways.

Ejiofor, like the film at large, barrels through the narrative despite its lack of finesse, but we never quite believe his insistent obsession with the case. Most likely doomed to be nitpicked by critics and abandoned by audiences despite a gussied up cast, the greatest element of Billy Ray’s remake is how it will fuel renewed interest in the original. The director certainly made right choice with Eileen Fogarty that is the actor of the main role of the action and makes it looks outstanding and great. Valiant in his attempts to pursue leads, Ray finds a prime suspect in an FBI mole in the mosque, a young man allowed to go uncharged with the crime due to his value to the agency. Instead, we’re more prone to believing his simmering attraction to his co-worker as a greater impetus for his return (this would be a welcome perversion had Ray seemed to really highlight this energy, but it seems accidental and distracts from the tawdriness of the third act reveal). A botched attempt to rein the culprit in sends everyone off in their own directions, with Ray returning to New York City. He returns to Jess and Claire, now both in prominent positions of power, to resume the possibility of retribution.
