Crime investigators Jess (Julia Roberts) and Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) are called to investigate a dead body found in a dumpster.
Keanu is fun, and even sometimes outright hilarious, but it doesn’t live up to the skills of its central performers.
Patrice Leconte's "Monsieur Hire" is a tragedy about loneliness and erotomania, told about two solitary people who have nothing else in common. A report from a panel at Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival about diversity in the light of the 2015 Oscar ceremony. There is a long tradition of Hollywood co-opting the plots of well-regarded foreign films and then snuffing out the very qualities that made the originals feel fresh, unique and eminently remake-able. For every success like “The Departed,” based on Hong Kong’s “Infernal Affairs,” there are countless inferior reinterpretations that often count on star power to compensate for a watered-down rendition, regularly changed to a box-office-friendlier PG-13 instead of a more honest R rating.I will never forget the first few months of 1993. FFC Gerardo Valero discusses the devolution of Quentin Tarantino by comparing The Hateful Eight to Pulp Fiction. Hollywood, being the idea-less mecca of moviemaking it is, naturally snatched up the remake rights, and five years later it has arrived. Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Ray Kasten, a former FBI agent who specialized in counterterrorism in the aftermath of September 11th. The romance between Ricardo Darin and Soledad Villamil in the original is arguably that film’s strongest element. Billy Ray is a fine writer and director, but there just doesn’t seem to be a unique voice to justify telling this story again.
When they arrive at the crime scene, they are horrified to discover that the teenage girl who has been brutally murdered is Jess' daughter. Thirteen years later, Ray has a new lead and tracks down the suspect, but Jess wants to serve justice her own way. While it might remove the need for those pesky subtitles, these Americanized versions too often erase such essential elements as logic, subtext and  the sense of cultural relevance that made the title a standout in the first place. That was the ultimate winter of foreign remake discontent, when moviegoers were cruelly subjected to “The Vanishing” (a debasement of the same-titled Dutch chiller by the same director, no less), “Sommersby” (which sucked much of the magic out of the French arthouse sensation “The Return of Martin Guerre”) and “Point of No Return” (sorry, Bridget Fonda, you are not nor will you ever be “La Femme Nikita”).Well, they’ve done it again—and, sad to say, none too well—with “The Secret in Their Eyes,” 2010’s foreign-language Oscar winner from Argentina.

He is now head of security for the New York Mets after quitting his previous job due to a murder case he was never able to close.
A smartly done, haunting crime thriller, revolving around a brutal 1974 rape-murder investigation that is re-opened 25 years later, the film charts the effect that the unsatisfactory conclusion to the case had on both the legal team and the victim’s devoted husband.
Academy Award pundits everywhere were debating whether the winner of the Best Foreign Language Film category would be Jacques Audiard’s crime epic A Prophet or The White Ribbon from the great Michael Haneke. For thirteen years, he has been scrolling through mugshots every day to find a new lead on the man who murdered his partner’s daughter. Ejiofor and Kidman are two actors up to the task, and the screenplay lets them down time and again.
Her grief and anger about the loss of her daughter is believable and real, and in a revenge movie or just a drama about a grieving mom, this kind of performance would be welcome. It's a reflection of the country’s rampant government corruption at the time.The complicated “who, what, where, when and how” aspects were handled expertly, especially a scene staged in a massively crowded soccer stadium.
Nearly every character acts like they are in a different kind of movie, though the actors are giving it their all.
When he thinks he’s found the guy, he goes back to Los Angeles to visit the new district attorney (Nicole Kidman), who also happens to be the woman he loves, and his former partner (Julia Roberts) about reopening the case. Here, though, her character has been expanded from the original film and takes up an inordinate amount of time that could be devoted to either the tracking down of the suspect or the love story. It only acts as a way for Alfred Molina to yell at Ejiofor about stopping work on the murder investigation and getting back to his counterterrorism duties. But what truly distinguished this superb film were the intense emotional connections brought to life by actors Ricardo Darin and Soledad Villamil, who look and acted like real humans, not prettified facsimiles. Well, it was released a couple of months later, and it was a hard movie to argue against winning.
Instead of a fresh take on a murder mystery, this feels like a mid-level thriller that came out twenty years ago.
It feels like four scenes were missing where this love story was actually fleshed out, and instead it comes off awkwardly.


We understand her wallowing in anger and desire for justice, but every scene with her hits the same beats over and over again.
It mixed a gripping crime procedural with a beautiful lost romance with excellent craftsmanship, most notably in a long take that starts as a wide shot of a soccer stadium and goes into the crowd and back halls for a foot chase. Their best scene together is an interrogation scene (it’s actually the best scene in the movie) where there is passion to be found, but it is not there before or after, sadly. Also, it’s likely to interfere with your popcorn eating and putting the make on your date during the screening.
That leaves the door open for the cutting of many corners and questionable ethics in the name of security but also proves to be a distraction from the core plot.More damaging are the casting choices.
There is nothing inherently wrong with changing the gender of the character that is related to the young female victim. Except that the connection involved—mother-and-daughter—no longer provides the same sort of echo of the unrequited love angle. That the parent is an FBI investigator initially directly involved in the case makes matters too personal for her and her co-workers. Jekyll’s plain-Jane servant knows how well her fans take to a cinematic frump-over of their idol.Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman as Roberts’ district attorney boss has a few strong scenes, including one with intensely sexual overtones, as she strives to make finding the killer a priority despite the fact that the prime suspect is a source of intel on a terrorist cell linked to a local mosque. But she also has to be incandescent enough to cause Roberts’ fellow FBI investigator, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, to gaze upon her like a googly-eyed schoolboy any time she slinks across his path. Too often Kidman, decked out in designer outfits as opposed to Roberts’ grunge garb, looks like she is floating through a perfume commercial. As for Ejiofor, who mesmerized in “12 Years a Slave,” he is not the problem even if he has more chemistry with character actor Dean Norris as sidekick Bumpy than he does with either female cohort. Also fulfilling their duties well are Michael Kelly, who knows his way around white-collar weasels lately thanks to his memorable work as Doug Stamper on Netflix’s “House of Cards,” and Alfred Molina as Kidman’s blustery higher-up.But although a surprising number of plot machinations from the original film remain fully intact, usually accounting for anything that seems remotely clever, what is missing is the type of hold-your-breath tension provided by good thrillers. Neither the camerawork nor the editing between 2002 and the current timeline manages to stir up much excitement.
