Mini Review - Secret In Their Eyes

Secret In Their Eyes (out Nov 19) is based on the superb Oscar winning Argentinean film, El secreto de sus ojos. It’s nice to see the story told again but this remake can’t match the power of the original. The ending is over dramatized and the film's romantic angles are hard to buy given the stiff dialogue. This is still an engaging thriller though and offers much to think about in terms of grief and ethics. Grade: B.
